Better than I was expecting!
on April 24, 2013
I expected this book, Writing Papers in the Biological Sciences, to be another of those dull, detail obsessed books on someone or another's interpretation of various style manuals for writing - Chicago, APA, and so on.
It's better than that.
This slim book is easy to read, discusses various types of writing in addition to oral and poster presentations, and discusses organizing data, using literature, and more.
The spiral bound format makes it easy to keep next to your keyboard as you are typing and working on a particular reference format.
I appreciate this contribution to student success. This was a text for my students this semester, and it was easy to keep referring to it for style issues.
