The Purpose of the book:
In order to be able to write good essays, it is first of all essential to make sure that you understand the purpose of the task. It may seem obvious: the purpose is to test your ability to write essays for university or college in English.
However, a moment’s reflection will make it clear that the test task is quite unlike a university essay since it is typically 1 to 2 pages long and is written on an unprepared topic in about 40 minutes.
No university essay is like that. Even in university examinations, where you may have to write about two pages in half an hour, you are expected to have studied the subject in advance.
