Much more concise and informational...

This book is way better than the Writer's Reference that is required at both colleges I tutor for. This has become my professional "Bible" for citing MLA, APA, and Chicago styles, as well as the individual components involved in constructing a research paper. This book has helped me tutor students who are not clear on not only citing and formatting issues, but also transitions, annotated bibliographies, drafting outlines, introductions and conclusions, crafting research questions, and fine-tuning a thesis statement.
I initially owned the third edition for a writing class, and purchased the fourth edition for my own personal reference and professional tool. I will purchase the fifth and subsequent editions as they come avaiable!
