Accidentally posted the wrong review for this item... Anyway, well, it's a textbook. It IS handy, and fairly cheap (I stuck with the rental). Amazon Prime got it here on time, a day early if I recall. Used book was in good condition, and if you're rough with college writing, especially writing in the MLA format, it's pretty brief and concise in providing helpful information.

I struggle with many grammatical and structure issue. Professors Adams assigned this book, and it has been the best. It is layed out for simply reading and easy understanding. I highly recommend this.

ordered for a class and it has come in handy. I even keep it at work for those times when I need to be reminded of how to formalize business letters, etc.

Didn't have to flip back and forth and everything is color coded which makes it easier. Great examples inside as well

More About the Author

Ann Raimes was born and educated in England and the U.S. (University of London, Oxford University, and Cornell). A few years ago, she retired from full-time teaching at Hunter College, where she was a professor of English for thirty-two years. With its 21,000 ethnically diverse students, many of whom are immigrants or born to immigrant families, Hunter is known as "an urban leader in educating a diverse student body." In addition to teaching undergraduate composition courses, ESL writing courses, and graduate courses in rhetoric and composition, Ann was in charge of the Developmental English Program (1,500 students) for ten years and directed the first-year composition course (75+ sections), working with a colleague to establish and direct a still-thriving writing center. She also was a member of the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the College Preparatory Initiative and served as one of the first Chairs of the CUNY ESL Council, Chair of the TESOL Publications Committee, and Chair of the CUNY ESL Task Force. Ann has also published many research and theoretical articles and has been a frequent presenter at conferences. Her articles have appeared in TESOL Quarterly, Language Learning, College English, College ESL, and other journals and anthologies. She is also the author of ten textbooks (writing, ESL, and grammar), many in several editions.
