This book should be called, "The Writers Bible." It really is that good of a book.
Natalie Olsen
I listed this book in the syllabus of the undergrad class that I teach as a "suggested text" for students to use as they write their assigned papers.

If you are writing papers in APA or other formats, this book offers clear concise directions and examples.

This book is a very good guide for college writing. At times it can be a bit confusing as there is SO much to go over. It is broken down into sections but when you have to read several chapters at a time it gets murky, but that is more the professors issue than the publishing company. I don't like that it doesn't have an index you have to search through the chapter listings to find what you are looking for.

This book is a must have for any english or writting class. So much info in it. Nicely laid out chapters. If it weren't for this book I would not have received an A in my Business writing or other writing classes in post secondary educational learning. This book should be called, "The Writers Bible." It really is that good of a book.

If you are writing papers in APA or other formats, this book offers clear concise directions and examples. Using it you can once and for all turn those marathon papers in, certain you will not lose points for improper formatting errors.

I ordered this textbook thinking I should get my daughter a brand new one and pay the higher price. The book came quickly in the mail but it was damaged and certainly did not look new at all. The binding is coming apart in several places. There is not enough time to return the book and get another. I am very disappointed to say the least. She will not be able to resell this book for a decent price when she is finished with it. Certainly not worth the almost $60 I paid for it.
