    You really do need to get the key word right, even if all the others are wrong.
    'Précis' or 'precis' is not 'precise'.

    Anyhow, you need to go back to the basics first. Use punctuation, capitalise 'I', don't put a space before a comma or period, etc. These are all essential in writing a good précis.

    Essay? Remember my point about getting the key words right. You want to be understood.
    The same generic skills are involved in all sorts of good writing. For specific ideas, you can do a similar web search for "Essay writing".
