Synopsis

A fundamental part of writing at university is using what you read in your work. Your lecturers may ask you to be critical, original and to put what you read into your own words. You will also be told not to plagiarise. What does all this actually mean? How can you use other people's work and still be original? How much of your essay should be about what you read? How do you make clear the difference between your own ideas and those that have come from your reading? What words and phrases should you use to introduce and comment on your sources? The fully updated and revised edition of this popular book answers these questions, and takes you through the complete process of using your reading in your writing. It also:* Uses real texts and examples of real student writing* Gives you nearly 300 key words to use when integrating sources into your work and practice in using them accurately* Looks at common mistakes students make to help you to improve your own correction skills and avoid making the same mistakes yourselfHow to Use your Reading in your Essays equips you with all the information, practice and confidence you need to use your reading effectively in your writing and to get the best marks possible for your work.
