Exced.net comments

The book is a much welcome development in particular when most students cannot write effectively. One reason why school leavers and young graduates find it difficult to get jobs has to do with the quality of their applications. It is just appalling. Your application or your letter is your ambassador. Decisions on whether to proceed with you or give you a chance for the job depends on people’s impression of you derived from your letter and or application. There is therefore every need for students to improve their writing skills. It is in this wise that the book "CONTINOUOS WRITING for Schools and Colleges” by Kunle Dagunduro is featured this month and recommended for all serious minded students.
