The Student's Only Survival Guide to Essay Writing.
Good, Steve; Jensen, Bill
Designed primarily with the student in mind, this guide focuses on what the student needs to know about essay writing to survive in college. It details a proven, consistent, and effective method for the preparation of undergraduate essays across the disciplines. Not intended as a textbook, the guide speaks directly to the student, providing step-by-step solutions to the problems of essay writing. The guide presents a comprehensive "plan of attack," taking the student through the complete process of essay writing from the initial assignment to the finished product. Among the topics covered in the guide are: (1) how to generate ideas and topics; (2) how to develop thesis and path statements; (3) how to design the multiple unit essay; (4) how to work with rhetorical approaches; (5) how to shape the body units; (6) writing the research paper; and (7) writing across the disciplines. An extensive section of appendixes covers, in a concise manner, how to correct common errors in student essays and provides general information and reminders. (NKA)
