Understanding Book & Lab Report Writing

Do you think book reporting is a very tough task to do as it demands hours of research before even getting started?

It is time taking for sure but it is certainly not a hard nut to crack, and it is a great opportunity for students to polish their writing skills.

You can write an exceptional book report in no time. How? Read the article below and learn the easiest way of writing a book report. Dive in.



A book report is basically discussing the book contents in the form of a formal essay.

It sums up the significant features of the book like characters, title, author and plot and represents what a student like you understood or read about that particular book.


Most of the times students are already assigned a book by their professors but if you are allowed to select your book, choose one which you are sincerely excited to read.

You can pick any book as long as it is suitable for the setting of your classroom.

Know that choosing is not always a fun option.

Try to be open-minded and avoid assuming that you won’t do your best if you are not allowed to choose a book.  




Just like essay writing and research constitute a major part of academics, lab reports are also essential when we talk about laboratory courses and the analysis.


A lab report is basically an analysis of a scientific process.

  • How did you carry out the procedure?
  • What methods were used in it?
  • What was the hypothesis?
  • What was the evidence to support your hypothesis?
  • How did you formulate the results?
  • What is the analysis of your experiment according to the hypothesis?

Describe the method you used in your experiment in a detailed way. Every step should be described in a detailed and sufficient manner.

Use bullet points while writing your method of experimentation. That would be easier to write in a detailed manner.


Your method should be written in a way that is easy for anyone else to replicate your method.

Make sure that the steps mentioned are in a chronological manner.

You can also use diagrams, graphs and flowcharts to describe the method you used in your experiment.

Don’t forget to add references. Include the names in your reference list if you are working on someone else’s work or reviewing their literature for your hypothesis.
