Hi, I'm Laura from and I'm going to talk about how to write a book report at the college level. Now, you've probably had this assignment from elementary school, so you're familiar with what a book report entails. But, if your professor is assigning you to write a book report, they probably have a specific goal in mind. There's probably a reason that you were reading this book, and it's probably connected with other things that you're studying in the course. So, be sure that you understand the assignment. Your professor will probably give you some guidelines about what, in particular, they want you to include in your book report. So, be sure to follow the format that's been assigned specifically, and be careful about not straying from that, because that's part of what's an important part of being in college, is knowing how to follow the format that's assigned. Now, in your book report, you'll want to include quotes from the book, and use that to illustrate some of your points. Use that to reinforce some of the things that you are saying in your book report. You'll also want to be sure to write several drafts of your report, and it's helpful to have someone else read some of your first draft and give you some feedback. Also proofread very carefully. Be sure to use Spell Check and Format, and again, check to make sure the format is exactly what has been assigned. Now, once you've finished all these things, be sure to turn your assignment in on time, and those are some ideas about how to write a book report at the college level.
