How to do your Essays, Exams and Coursework in Geography and Related Disciplines is written for students who need help doing their coursework and exams. The book focuses on the skills and techniques that apply to essay writing and also covers other types of assignment such as posters, talks, PowerPoint DTM presentations and web pages. The basis of the book is that all of these different types of work are based on clear communication of well-supported responses to the questions or tasks that have been set. The book is written in an informal style intended to make it user-friendly to students who want to improve their work throughout their university career and beyond. The book can be used to look up answers to specific questions as well as being worked through section by section as coursework projects are tackled. It is a companion volume to the author's earlier How to Do Your Dissertation in Geography and Related Disciplines and like that book is organized in the form of a series of questions of the type that students might ask themselves at each stage of their work.
Each chapter includes a brief summary of key points, and contributions from 'our friend Eric' provide a counterpoint to the main text.
