Even though I didn't actually use this (bought wrong edition), I can say this book is helpful as I bought a similar edition (The Norton Field Guide to Writing with Readings and Handbook (Second Edition)). It has very detailed information on grammar, source citation for MLA and APA, etc. I would recommend this book.
I gave this 5 stars because out of all the college comp books I've had, by far this is the best! I love it, love it, love it. I still have it, who knows, maybe i'll use it again a few years down the road :)
Needed to buy this for an English class. It is very helpful and outlines many key points to include when writing or to look for when reading. I anticipate holding on to this book and using it when writing essays in the future.
I am mainly posting this review because the book arrived to me in good condition. I had to order this book for a class so for anyone who does not have to I would say this could count as a teacher recommendation too. From what I noticed this book has some interesting pieces of editorials inside while providing other good examples of works. It's overall a good book for those interested in learning more about writing.
The product was in very good condition when I got it. There were a few highlighted passages, but I expected there to be. The book itself was in good shape with no ripped pages and just a few bent corners.
I wanted to buy a book I heard about amazon in my class so I just go on amazon and check price of book. Price was less than my college bookstore. Also they delivered on time. Overall I can say amazon is excellent!!!!
