Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA?Detailed, practical explanations cover virtually any type of writing that might be required in high school or college courses. Methods, definitions of types of writing, examples, shortcuts, planning techniques, and writing styles, as well as where to go for more help at school, in libraries, and online are all included. Correcting errors and dealing with assignment requirements are also discussed. One chapter covers core reference sources, in print and on CD-ROM, and through the Internet. Sections can be used for quick reference; the entire book will be useful for in-depth study.

Format: Paperback
Something can be done about poor student writing so that you WRITE YOUR WAY TO A HIGHER GPA, by keeping to good note-taking and study habits; choosing a topic that interests you and making every paper a further look at that one interest; going through the stages of researching, mindmapping or outlining, and drafting until you clean your writing of grammatical mistakes and logically order the main idea through supportive findings to a strong conclusion; and handing work in, on time and packaged the way the professor wants. Randall and Katharine Hansen say that their way works, and I believe them: all their suggestions make sense, not just about writing, but also about what else you can do, such as making sure that the professor knows you, that you get to class on time and that you take part in discussions. Readers might also want to look at STRATEGIES FOR COLLEGE WRITING by Jeanette Harris, PRENTICE HALL GUIDE FOR COLLEGE WRITERS by Stephen Reid, and REAL A+ COLLEGE TERM PAPERS by Mark Alan Stewart.
