...you can find all of this information online for free. I only bought it because I had a professor that wanted us to have the physical handbook and made us bring it to class. It is helpful and useful if you need to write in Turabian style, but I would just google the information if you can and save a few dollars.

This is every professor's love no matter what university or college you go to. The Sixth Edition is defintely not up to date considering it was published in 1996.
There are no internet citation guide. Much of the manual is not well identified. You have to use the index more than anything just to find the information you need.
Unfortuantely this is the "bible" guide for a university.

Do you always stand out by following the trends of others? You can do many insightful things in college by conforming your style, but is it always the thing you wanted to make? Inspiration has hit me a few times in life and I have to say that it did not follow in these footsteps.

So, do you trade for grades or do you say what you need to say?

While Turabian does provide for the most part ample and lucid descriptions of the varied types of possible citations and reference notes, it is lacking in the area of online and internet citations. The section on online documentation is brief and entirely fails to mention world wide web or other internet sources. The reader is left on his own to cite this important category of sources.

This book was recommended for one of my classes. However, the book is not very useful. I tried to find the correct way to cite a web page - but the book doesn't list any type of electronic sources. It desperately needs to be updated to include modern technology.

because in my class i would get docked points just for not putting a period in the correct spot! oh well. it's not too bad of a book. quite complex though. you'd think that our civilization becoming more advanced, we'd find an easier way to write. oh well, we can't all have the world.
