Editorial Reviews

Review

"Trimmer's Guide is an informative, concise, and usable reference which aids students in understanding MLA conventions and appropriately documenting their sources. The text covers key concepts and provides examples of each."

"The book provides comprehensive coverage of the primary documentation circumstances a student writer is likely to encounter, especially in the first two years of college. The book offers cogent and clear counsel on the importance of evaluating sources before using them. It also gives explicit examples of the most prevalent kinds of plagiarism, explaining exactly how it is manifest in each example and how the plagiarism could have been avoided in each case."
