What is a Review? What are they used for?


1. A review is a written assessment of something, someone or an experience.

    It is there to inform people, to advise them, to analyse something or

    describe it.

 

2. They can be written with a positive view in order to give praise, with a

    negative perspective to criticise, or simply just offer an  opinion and

    balanced view of something for others to read.

    possible. The purpose of a review is often to help other people so giving

    accurate information is useful. For example if you are reviewing a product

    such as a mobile phone accurate details allow other people who read your

    review to understand it.
