Brief, Yet Helpful
The course is very brief, but it fits a surprising amount of helpful information into a small package. Of course, you won't finish the course as the best essayist in the world, but it is nonetheless filled with very useful advice. It is directed more at beginners though.
Its very helpful for all students!!!!
