Each student from the first to the last course is assigned several times a semester to write a coursework. However, not all students are aware of this type of abstract work, like the abstract-summary. The article will not only help to figure out what it is but also reveal the features of how to put in related coursework on resume.
To date, several types of abstract works are used in educational practice, the most popular of which is the abstract review and the abstract summary. An abstract review is written based on several sources of information on a particular topic. Abstract-summary is a summary of information based on one source. The main condition for this type of work is the absence of subjective thoughts. There is also the synonymous name of the abstract-summary – indicative abstract. Sometimes students are confused by the name of an informative abstract. This view differs from the abstract summary in that, in addition to a brief description of the provisions of the original source, it contains information about the research methodology and its technical side.
Despite the requirement of an objective presentation of information, the abstract should not turn into a mechanical retelling of the text of the original source. The referent should highlight what deserves attention because of newness or practical value. Only such work will be highly appreciated in the end. It is very good if the text will include quotations from the original source, however they should be informative and concise. Especially make sure that the quotes do not resemble “foreign bodies”, which by no means fit into the main text. The trick used by experienced essay writers is the abbreviation of terms (common or typical for a given source). Such reductions help to reduce the volume without affecting the main content. It is much easier to write an essay using differential reading, the essence of which is in highlighting keywords and topics in the text of the process of developing the source.
In the process of writing a term paper, you will be able to determine in which direction it is easier and more interesting for you to work, and also get the skills to search and systematize sources of literature, to study and analyze theoretical material.
