  • At many schools (grade and high) English classes
    the ability to create an appropriate book report
    is necessary. What is more, the task of writing a
    book summary is a usual deal for highly
    prestigious universities like Oxford.

  • In addition to all of that, a knowledge of how to
    write an effective summary of a book could be
    very useful while studying at university,
    including a well-known Harvard.

But it is not something that people do for
education and work. A qualitative summary could
help you to remember the most important points of
the book you read, of the lecture you heard, a
presentation you saw and so on and so forth.

  • It could be useful for a vast package of spheres
    of life. For example, Wikipedia article summary
    is very useful in order to highlight necessary
    facts and not to waste time on the rest of the
    text.

  • You might be thinking that this is a very
    complicated and impossible deal without several
    years of qualification. If yes, you could find a
    reliable book summary service. From the other
    side, you could take a minute to learn something
    that could help you with this topic.

  • There are a lot of pieces of advice about how to
    summarize a book, as that is a particular type of
    writing. So, lets understand the difference
    between this sort of paper and any other.

10
  • First of all, prepare for creating your report.
    Choose the best book from the list (if your
    teacher gave it to you), from your point of view.

  • Students from Cornell say that without an
    appropriate book, that interests you, there wont
    be an appropriate summary.

  • Then, make sure that you understood the
    assignment correctly. If you have some questions
    or if you think there could be some inaccuracies
    you could turn for help to your tutor.

  • Dont think that a book report and a book review
    are the same. To summarize book means to retell
    the plot and to focus on facts. And the second
    one describes how valuable is the book.

  • One more point to remember make notes. A lot of
    notes. Note everything that could be important.

  • Points which have to be noted almost in every
    summary are characters, setting, story, main
    ideas and themes, quotations, etc.

  • Now you have a lot of information to create a
    draft with. Think about your plan order would be
    thematic or chronological?

  • The next step is writing your introduction
    paragraph that would give a reader a basic topic
    of the book. Then write the rest of the report
    using your notes and your plan. After writing all
    paragraphs try to develop them.

    differ a lot? Are there some things to avoid
    while summarizing PowerPoint? For real, there are
    some differences, but it is not more complicated
    than writing a book summary.
