I know anyone can write essay if he tried but the content quality is different from any professional writer. Lack of quality, sense, technical skills all are very important for any content. Essay should be like that when anyone read it actually feel it.

I just noticed the primary link of the subject of the thread supplied by the feed was broken. It is now fixed and working. In an examination of the their site, no part two has been generated. What I'll do, since there does seem to be some interest in the subject based on the hits and traffic, is add my on thoughts on essays; specifically the most extreme form of academic essay.

It will likely take more then a few hours to put something together. If I can I'll start on it tonight and try to have it done in the next couple days.

In the mean time, a few links on Academic Essays that you might find instructive.

Basics of an Essay.

As noted in the original feed article, How to Write an Essay from the site Writers Treasure, there are numerous types of essays for a number of purposes. The type of essay most people think of, and get concerned about, are those used for scholastic measurement, commonly referred to as an 'Academic Essay'. But the term 'Academic Essay' can not only refer to the essay's purpose but its structure.

The Academic format is designed not only to measure the depth of understanding of the subject matter but to also provide insight into the process used in evaluating the material, and the ability to communicate what was learned. In advanced scientific and research settings, involving experimentation, or data analysis, it also needs to provide enough detail, that the results can be duplicated.
 
Beyond knowing the subject matter, the most important piece of information you need for a successful essay, is knowing what is expected. You can have the best essay ever but if it's not within the bounds of the established criteria, then you're not going to do well. If it calls for 500 words then be as close to it as you can. If the campus or department has a format or outline they feel should be used, then use it. It is also worthwhile to know the politics and orthodoxy related to the subject matter, as well as the expectations of individual instructors and professors.

Generally, an essay's components are specified as introduction, body and conclusion. It can broken down further to; thesis, issues (eg. problems, questions, etc), evidence, and conclusions (analysis, reflection, etc.).

Even with a good level of detail in explanations and examples available, a number of people will still have difficulty. The issue arises in part because of the number of possible variations, often specific to a discipline, and the general nature of most discussions on the topic.

Knowing how to write an effective essay can be an invaluable asset in any profession. The ability to persuade in a thoughtful and detailed manner can often be the difference between a leader and follower, manager or laborer. It is how people with good ideas persuade others to change the way things are done, or create something new.

An essay is effectively an argument 'for' or 'against' a specific point of view on a topic. The goal is to explain the justifications and/or proofs for that viewpoint in a logical and rational sequence. If the exercise is within a scholastic or a corporate context, then the parameters of the assignment will have been predefined to some degree.
