The second edition of this leading guide helps students to develop reflective thinking skills, improve their critical analysis and construct arguments more effectively.

Essential for students who are mystified by tutor comments such as 'more critical analysis needed', this is an invaluable tool for anyone wishing to develop advanced skills in this area and learn to apply them to tasks such as reading, writing and note-taking.
