    Book reviews - update on the new niche

    Last year Tony Sir had announced the move towards an academic portal. One of the acceptable topics listed was books. However, as per a recent discussion here's a new update - no general reviews of books as such should be submitted. What will be allowed are articles that recommend specific books to prepare for some entrance exam or a course. Such articles would need to have informative content bringing out clearly whey these books would be beneficial and adhere to the general articles submission guidelines.

    Now, this does not mean that you merely list a number of reference books that are given as recommended by a particular institute based on the syllabus. We will expect an analysis of how those books benefit the student in studying a particular subject of a course or preparing for some major competitive or another type of entrance test. Thus, for example, if you pursued a course in architecture and found that a book was immensely helpful in understanding the use of a particular type of material to build earthquake-resistant homes, you can give a review of that book.

    In case there is any confusion about this or other types of articles that you wish to clarify about, post your doubts and queries in a response to this thread. We will discuss it with Tony Sir and get back to you.

    This is a nice explanatory post regarding book reviews. We were doing it earlier but that was all sorts of books whether it was fantasy, fiction, general, philosophical, suspense, thriller, religious etc which is useful for motivating a person to read that or not read that depending upon the verdict made in the review. Now, as explained in the post above, we have to confine ourselves to basically text books and guidebooks which are used by the students studying in school / college / institution etc. So, people having expertise in their own field like Science or Humanities or Legal or Management or Engineering can describe and highlight a book of their choice and interest.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    I think ISC being an educational site it would be interesting to contribute reviews on text books or college reference books. That would of course will be a challenging task as it would be too academic in nature.
    Knowledge is power.
