Communication Skills Handbook from USQ

The Communication Skills Handbook is a USQ text which is extremely useful for your studies.  For assignments you will be required to write reports, case studies and academic essays. The handbook shows you the style required by USQ.  There is also a vital chapter outlining the Harvard AGPS style of referencing. We cannot stress enough the importance of being able to reference correctly.  Plagiarism occurs when referencing is not done properly and penalties are severe. Students are highly recommended to attend the TPS class to learn more about Harvard AGPS style of referencing.

Dictionaries

A good dictionary will be a great advantage to you during your studies as you will encounter a wide range of new vocabulary during your studies.  Please not that during examination only paper and NOT electronic dictionaries will be allowed into the examination room.
