Dear Sir /Madame，
Xizhen Chen, my former student in the Department of Computer Science, Beijing Univ. of Sciences, I am glad to write this letter furnishing my evaluation of his academic aptitude for your reference. Mr. Chen is interested in your graduate program in Computer Science.
I came to know him in September 1987 when Mr. Chen enrolled in my class on FORTRAN IV Programming, a three semesters' course. In the class he was one of the most outstanding students. At the semester final he earned a high grade of 81, which should be "A" according to our grading system. I also found him good at other studies.
After the class, he had personal talks with me several times. He indicated a great interest in computer hardware, In my opinion, Mr. Chen has a potential in Computer Science, which can be further developed.
In view of his previous achievements in this College, I am firmly convinced that Mr. Chen will make a successful graduate student. Your favorable consideration of his admission will be highly appreciated.
Enclosed is my resume and if there is any additional information you require，please contact me.

Dear Prof. Dr. 0000
I take great pleasure in writing this letter of recommendation for Dr. 000to support his application for a postdoctoral position in your lab. Dr. 00is an outstanding graduate student working for the M.S. degree under my supervision. In my contact with him in the University, his creativity and attitude to research work gave me deep impression. He always proposed new ideas on his research and could
resolve problems by himself, I was very satisfied with him. Dr 00has been working on molecular luminescence research about six years. As I know, most of his researches have been concentrated on bioanalytical chemistry in his Masters work, such as protein and nucleic acids assays etc. In these fields, Dr. 00has strong background and research ability. He has and would be published several papers in international journals. I am often interested in reading his papers in publication and discussing with him. I am very appreciated of his research ability. Dr 000also possesses very fine character. He is a devoted research worker. He works on weekends. He is an honest and smart, reliable and responsible person, and is very cooperative too. Based on these qualities, I believe this young man will achieve greater academic success in his future work. Therefore, I strongly support his application, and it would be greatly appreciated if you could give him your favorable consideration.
Please feel free to contact me if I can answer any additional questions about 00000. My address is as follows:
