  1. I’m skimming through a number of these, and they provide quality advice. I’m tempted to print them out and make them available to students in my own courses. Would you be adverse to this?

  2. Marc; you have offered sound advice for all students and not just those at THm level.

    I’m currently studying a BCm and prayerfully intend to follow with a masters and Phd… and you have given me much insight into improving how I currently study.

    • That’s great. Feel free to let me know if these can be improved in any way or if you have suggestions for other posts.

  3. Marc,

    I feel these are both great tips not only for the Th.M. student but for the Th.D. (or Ph.D.) student as well.

    • I’m glad you liked them. And, you’re right, the basic skills of academic writing are the same at every level, though hopefully the quality of research and depth of thinking improves.
