Bailey hits the nail on the head with the chapters in the 'Accuracy in Writing' section. This was definitely my favorite part. In general, I thought the book was really well developed, but I found myself adding supplemental materials for the chapter 'Argument and discussion' and the (brief) section 'Writing Models'. I think a companion book for Writing Models would be a huge help, especially for instructors; I would love to see this!
I highly recommend the book if your students sound similar to mine. I have noticed a significant improvement over the course of the semester and look forward to using the book again. I also work with PhD students in the life/natural sciences and wish there was a version of this book with scientific themed examples/exercises.
I really wish this book were available WITHOUT the answer key, or at the very least an incomplete key. Perhaps the publishers will consider this for future versions?
