Abstract

Summarising exercises are very often set on business examination papers because they test our abilities to understand what we read and to express ourselves concisely — two essential work skills. Examination questions may ask for a summary, precis or abstract. Generally a summary or precis implies a condensed version of the original, while an abstract requires the extraction of selected ideas from the passage and often their rearrangement.
