The Mature Student's Guide to Writing Reviews

Reviews for the second edition: 'I thoroughly enjoyed the author's style of writing. She combines a firm and clear sense of how things should be done with some light touches of humour. The tone is approachable and supportive and I feel that this is one of the best selling points for the book. The combination of occasional short, decisive sentences adds to the tone of authority within the work.' - Lucinda Becker, University of Reading, UK 'Having taught mature - return-to-study - students and participated in research into mature students' experiences of nurse education, I realize only too well their insecurities over writing coursework assignments. This book is aimed at all such students... a very useful study guide...' - Christine Webb, Journal of Advanced Nursing
