Every student can benefit from extra help with matters of organization and style in the writing of term papers, theses, and dissertations – as a precursor to better grades and greater respect. This handy guide from the best–selling author team of "The Art of Scientific Writing" shows how to achieve maximum benefit with relatively little effort. Based on a proven concept that assumes no special talent for writing, the book will be of great value to both native and non–native speakers of English. The treatment is rich in examples and challenging problems (with solutions provided in an appendix), applicable either in conjunction with a course or for self–study.
