As a student, a writer, and a teacher, I think this book is a useful and easy-to-understand resource for double-checking my work as I write and revise papers.

Let's face it: the English language is filled with a seemingly endless number of little intricacies concerning its correct usage that can be difficult to recall instantly during the writing process. This handbook serves as a vade mecum for referencing all of the various rules, guidelines, and heavily-nuanced aspects pertaining to grammar and writing.

Although I've used newer editions of this book over the years, I own the 6th edition of it-- which I've utilized countless times throughout my college career. Currently, I'm in a doctoral program and I make sure this handbook is in my reach every time I write or grade papers. 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. (I didn't want to make it a required text because I'm very empathic of the financial situations/burdens of college students; and, our libraries and writing centers have copies of it that students can use for free.)

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 for a college writing course I was taking. The book was shipped quickly and is in hard cover binding. It's a good guide for college writing. Really nothing to complain about.

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.
