So You Have to Write a Literature Review Book Review:

Is a literature review looming in your future? Are you procrastinating on writing a literature review at this very moment? If so, this is the book for you. Writing often causes trepidation and procrastination for engineering students—issues that compound while writing a literature review, a type of academic writing most engineers are never formally taught. Consider this workbook as a “couch-to-5k” program for engineering writers rather than runners: if you complete the activities in this book from beginning to end, you will have a literature review draft ready for revision and content editing by your research advisor. So, You Have to Write a Literature Review presents a dynamic and practical method in which engineering students—typically late-career undergraduates or graduate students—can learn to write literature reviews, and translate genre-based writing instruction into easy-to-follow, bite-sized activities and content. Written in a refreshingly conversational style while acknowledging that writing is quite difficult, Catherine Berdanier and Joshua Lenart leverage their unique disciplinary backgrounds with decades of experience teaching academic engineering writing in this user-friendly workbook

Literature Reviews Made Easy Book Review:

This book is designed to help you achieve one specific goal. It’s not designed to give you the philosophies of conducting research. It’s not designed to give you a background in a specific academic discipline or a specific topic. It’s not designed to give you theory. It’s designed specifically to instruct you in the practicalities of the writing process used to create strong, thorough, and potentially bulletproof literature reviews. This book is the culmination of years of research experience. It’s also the culmination of several years of teaching writing and critical thinking to doctoral students. Although it began as a tool for doctoral students, it has been expanded to be useful for everyone from senior high school students through doctoral candidates working on developing their first literature review or a larger literature review than they normally develop. It has been created for everyone from academics to new business entrepreneurs with good ideas who are trying to write their first reviews to support the new idea they’re proposing.

A Guide to Literature Reviews Book Review:

Many students find literature reviews fiendishly difficult to write. That is because the literature review -- a paper summarizing a body of published works on a given topic -- requires the writer to abandon almost everything they've learned about writing and to use a brand new tone and approach. This booklet explains everything the writer needs to generate a successful literature review in step-by-step fashion. By focusing on tone and organization and showing the writer how to use a grid system to develop the paper, this booklet will turn a difficult project into a finished one. Table of Contents - How to Use This Booklet - What Is a Literature Review? - Step One: Understand the Assignment - A Preliminary Word About Tone - Step Two: Organize the Material - Step Three: Create Topic Sentences - Step Four: Complete the Paragraphs - Step Five: The First Paragraph - Step Six: Thesis and Tone - Step Seven: The Last Paragraph - Step Eight: The Final Check Here's what students have said about this method: "The grid made a big job seem really manageable." "Thank you for the guidance. I have made a breakthrough!" "Awesome!"
