Apart from being absolutely invaluable for those seeking admission into the prized portals of US and other top global universities, this book will also be of immense benefit to students of various management courses.
In fact, one of the most important criteria for securing admission to top universities is the high scores obtained in international tests such as GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, etc.
These tests include the all-important component of analytical writing tasks on given issues.
These apart, prospective students are also required to pen excellent essays on specific topics chosen by the Universities concerned.
Therefore, the vital importance of clear and critical thinking, analytical abilities, and good essay writing cannot be over-emphasized.
This book attempts to familiarise the student with the skills in writing effective essays on diverse topics.
Also model responses to a spectrum of analytical issues with special reference to the requirements of the International Tests mentioned above are offered.
The book has been broadly divided into three sections dealing with:
*Analysing the Issue & Presenting Your Perspective
*Analysis of an Argument Task`
*Model University Essays
Each section outlines the strategies to be adopted for that particular task, followed by a collection of model responses.
Highlights of the book:
Thorough and detailed analysis of questions such as...
*Success in life is due to your hard work and not luck. Discuss.
*Would you like to live in a big city or a small town? Support your answer with help of specific reasons/examples.
*`The state should continue to provide substantial subsidies to people on cooking gas...Discuss how well reasoned you find this argument.
*Do you feel it is rather strange that many great people, honoured long after their deaths, were never recognised during their lifetime? What is your reaction?
*Freewill is a myth. Each person is conditioned to act according to the circumstances created by his birth, enviornment, schooling and society in general. Do you agree? Give a reasoned argument.
...And many more.
