    Warm Hello!

    I'm starting BSc Natural Sciences Course (Biology) this year. I feel a bit anxious about essays since I am not used to such a form of examination.

    Could you recommend any decent resources (available online as well as offline) on essay writing? What helps you most?

    I will appreciate your advice!

    Best wishes

    Thank you for prompt replies and a new keyword suggestion.

    I will have a look at the book. It seems useful, especially since I am from outside UK and guidelines and expectations on written work may be different.

    The OU Sciences good study guide is a good read. It has a big section on science writing with examples and practice exercises. There's also an Arts study guide, a general study guide and an essay writing guide.
