I started a new english class at school and I havent been in an english class in many years, so I thought this book was going to be boring and useless. However, going through this book in class has helped me sooooo much! Because of this book i've been receiving awesome grades on all my essays and research papers. It helps you with different style formats for writing different papers. I was thinking about re-selling it back on amazon but I am keeping this book. This book will help me through out my life!! I just have one complaint, the coil binding rips the papers easily! im very careful with mine and have seen some tears in the pages, but its something that I can live with.

I was required to have this book for both Writing in the Liberal Arts classes when I first started college. I was eager to sell it after the courses was over. Big mistake. I have since then purchased another copy, and plan on keeping it forever. This book serves as a refresher course for students who have taken any English class, and will help them to write better.

Used and older books of this copy are just fine if you are skeptical about paying $40.00 for a brand new copy. Just be aware that there are important revisions, and you should find out what they are.

I purchased this book to verify grammar and punctuation use in a novel that I was reviewing and proofreading for a local author. I found this book to be easy to use to find information that I was seeking and to confirm/deny grammar and punctuation rules that I questioned.Rules for Writers This book is also used in many college writing courses and, of course, is recommended by college English instructors.

I do recommend the product for the purpose but I would prefer this to be more organized. I felt the info was all around the place. However, the book has the best information you can need for writing.

I was expecting a paper back with a normal spine, but this is actually a spiral bound book. I consider the spiral bound much easier to use because it takes up less desk space. :) The layout Diana Hacker chose to use is useful, but I've found some issues in finding specific material for citing sources using the index to navigate the book. Once I did find the correct information, it was of understandable quality.

Negatives: Challenging (But not impossible) to find specific information within a section.

Positives: Spiral Bound
Good quality of information

This book is full of so much useful information you may need when going to school (I use it in my college English classes). Everything from proper MLA citations, to detailed examples and explanations of parts of speech, etc. Easy to maneuver through the book and find what you are looking for.

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND (make sure it is the current version though as MLA changes over years)

If anything changes, I will update this review.

I had to buy this as part of a required text book for one of my college courses and I have referred to it quite often throughout my college years. Very clear cut and has both ELA and APA writing styles. I highly recommend this as a good tool to use throughout college.

Have used this book for years. Pleased with the layout and ease of readability. I recommend this to all of my students and finally have my own copy that doesn't belong to my school.
