  • Effective use of appendices

    This is a very well structured market entry report and the reference list is quite good. I think the idea of putting Porter's five forces in the appendix was a great idea - I did a similar report like this for IB last semester (on a bakery too - a coincidence!) and we struggled with the low word limit. I wish I had seen this essay before.
