This book was used for my English composition class . Highly recommended, very simple, useful and affordable. Besides that, I got an A in that class thanks to some of the materials inside the book . It is written very well and in plain English so you can comprehend what you are actually reading. If you need to learn how to write essays, how to cite sources and all the other "head ache" this is the way to go.

Great book for college. The shipping was fast and it was in great shape. I might be selling all my other books, but this one is a keeper. Plus, i'm amazed at the money i saved.

The book contains BASIC writing skills for college. Don't buy it, unless you think your writing skills are weak. It was required for my class and I didn't use it once.

My son called me and asked me to research and try to find this book for him because it was $250 at college book store and I am a loyal amazon customer. so when I found it here at this price, plus he could keep it or resell. If he got thru bookstore that was only to rent for semester but here I could purchase and then sell.

Really boring to read. Makes for really good fire kindle. Can also double as toilet paper in case of emergency.

Get this older edition. The newer editions are not worth the heightened price at all. I compared this to a classmate's much newer edition, and it is pretty much the exact same information, just different pages with some different examples. Personally, I found this book pretty much useless in the classroom context. Besides that first day of class when I compared it to my classmate's, I hadn't opened it once for the whole semester. But if you feel like you need one, then buy the older edition it is just as helpful and will save you some cash!

Trying to complete a course when I have never done academic writing is a bit difficult. The tutor recommended that I read some books about academic writing and recommended "the little penguin handbook". The price was right on Amazon, delivery was what I paid for and the book is so easy to read and understand. I have read it twice since receiving this 'bible to writing'.

My daughter ordered this book for her college course. It was required by her instructor. She referred to it quite a bit. Thanks!
