One of the most important aspects of learning, and perhaps the most neglected, is that of developing those thinking skills that enable students to analyse texts, critically evaluate arguments, construct a sound argument of their own and present that argument clearly, coherently and effectively. Aware of the lack of publications covering this aspect, a group of lecturers in Philosophy at the Rand Afrikaans University designed a set of course notes to meet this need. These notes proved so effective that they have been used as the basis for this publication.

Students of all disciplines which require essay writing as a component of their courses will find this book invaluable. Written in a down-to-earth style, it guides students through the various skills outlined above, as well as offering indispensable advice regarding study and time management, exam preparation and other related issues. Each chapter offers clear examples and easy-to-understand guidelines which combine to make this book extremely practical and useful. No student should be without it.
