Customer Review 1

This is a very well written resource which will provide both undergraduate students and those returning to practice and study with very useful guidance and support to develop thier critical thinking skills. The reflective activities provide the reader with opportunities to develop these skills and provides good examples of critical thinking across academic, reflectice essays adn portfolio development. It also helps the student to critically engage with a range of teaching strategies from lectures to simulation and clinical placements.

This is a well written book that will aid undergraduate students with their critical writing. Although written for nursing students this text may also be beneficial for other disciplines such as Paramedics.

An area where some students struggle - this is a good start and will supplement the support that we give to our students.

I shared this with students to gather their views Some appreciated the exercises Some enjoyed the layout, others found the close text and lengthy explanations tiring and disengaging. As with most supporting texts, different students respond to different resources. Therefore it is always useful to have variety to offer.

I received the revised copy of this text as I had received the previous edition as an inspection copy. Once again, I am very impressed with this text and I will be recommending this to my students. Not alone is this text useful for pre-registration students and their trajectory through the different years of the programme, it is also useful for those nurses returning to academia after a period of absence. It familiarises the student with the requirements of critical writing and the difference between critiquing and reflecting. A very useful text - well done!

Some chapters were more appropriate for senior students although other aspects of the book will be useful to all levels. Easy to read and follow. Some case studies relevant.

an excellent resource that helps students to understand what critical thinking is and how it relates to both theory and practice. The new chapter on critiquing literature is an excellent edition to this new edition.
