This book and CD set is sold as an ebook with an access code that you do get when you open the packaging. The publisher wants to make sure no one reuses the code, so they also require a "course code" when you go online to gain access to open the ebook. Well, my son was in a high school class that requires the hardback, but not the CD. I thought he lugs around enough heavy textbooks, so I thought I'd spend the extra money for the ebook for him since he carries an iPad, also. Unfortunately the publisher's customer service department was not able to help us gain access to the ebook without this magic "course" code. (Don't know why they don't have a generic one that could be use for just such situations.) Anyway, you don't want to buy this version for the ebook unless your teacher / professor uses the MyCompLab whole set up. The other way the publisher could prevent the reuse of the CD access code they send in the packaging is to issue unique codes on every new CD. Boom. Done. No problem, no "course code" required. How about it, Little, Brown?

Of the several editions of the Little, Brown Handbook I've owned (I buy the odd-numbered editions) and read cover-to-cover over the years, this (11th) edition will answer almost any question you have about writing. My last edition was the 9th and this one is significantly better, with better layout and colors to make every element on the page easier to read, even diacritical marks. Unfortunately, with purchase you are not given access to the companion website[...], and the book's own preface does not recommend the site. Pearson has plastered the website ad in every chapter, in a special section of the book, and on the back cover. Completely unnecessary and no class.

If you're going to get an English handbook, start with Little, Brown. But also get the definitive source, The Chicago Manual of Style, which also includes several chapters on punctuation, grammar, and style. Finally, round out your education with Joseph M. Williams' Style: The Basics of Clarity and Grace.

The Little Brown Handbook is a wonderful tool for writing papers for school or any other purpose. I recently went back to college at age 61 and this handbook has helped me get back on track as far as writing academic and research papers.

This is a very informative book. I had an earlier edition (that was stolen from me) that was simpler and easier to use. I would recommend for most people to get the Strunk and White "Elements of Style" instead, but for real grammar weenies, this will make you happy.

This book has everything I need to know and more concerning writing styles (APA, MLA and etc.), syntax, punctuation, composition and more. Great reference book when writing anything.

This series of books is amazing for a college student. They entail and detail syntax, grammar, and formatting for elements of the English language that are readily used throughout the collegian experience. While handling research papers, I referenced this about as often as I did my research material. This is worth the money.
