“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)
