Top Highlights

“Ensure the headings are descriptive of the flow of thought .” ( Page 11 )

“A research proposal ‘is a document that outlines how you propose to undertake your research studies.’ 1 Essentially, it outlines what you will research and how you will research it. The ‘what’ part is called the problem ; the ‘how’ part we call the plan . A proposal describes a problem and sets out a logical, systematic plan to solve it.” ( Page 97 )

“Use numbering or styling to distinguish different levels of headings .” ( Page 11 )

“In most assignments, the introduction is a brief ‘statement at the beginning of your assignment, which shows how you understand the question and how you plan to answer it.’ 3 In length, it should be less than 10 per cent of the essay; this usually means somewhere between one paragraph and one page.” ( Page 5 )

“‘Failing to plan is planning to fail!’ When you need to write an essay, invest time planning the assignment; you will save more time later.” ( Page 3 )
