This book was helpful in explaining basic college themes. I originally purchased the book for a first year college English course, and the material was very relevant and current. Briefly covers all basic aspects of writing and grammar for college writing as well as plenty of examples used in each chapter. Patterns for College Writing: A Rhetorical Reader and Guide

but basically the same as the last edition except for the questions and page numbers. If you can't afford this one buy that one and bum questions off a friend.
