This handy guide shows students how to use academic English grammar and punctuation. The author identifies common grammar mistakes and how to avoid them, making extensive use of examples and advice from tutors from a range of subjects. This valuable book enables readers to immediately improve their work at university. Inside, you will find practical advice on: - Common mistakes - Punctuation - Conciseness - Proofreading - Referencing - and more. The advice in the book has been tried and tested through workshops that the author runs with students. It will be useful to undergraduates on a wide range of courses, and will help promote independent learning as well as practical writing skills. It's great for dipping in and out of, or reading the whole way through. Alex Osmond is Academic Skills Adviser at Brunel University.
