Good, but it doesn't cover any of the subjects deeply.
I believe that if you are "refining" your skills is because you already know those skills and want to go deeply in learning them. However, this book gives only quick explanations about either writing and grammar. I just "learned" again everything I already knew and didn't refine anything. If you were required to buy it for classes, buy an used one. It's not the kind of book you will keep after your classes are done.

Plenty of up-to-date model paragraphs and essays to help the student see writing patterns at work. Sections of grammar, mechanics and 5Cs allow student to put together a nice piece of work.

the book really helps to improve my English skills. I especially like the sample papers. I bought this to re-sell later, but I would keep it.

I got this book for college and I was blown away by how quickly it arrived. It only took one day and I chose standard shipping. It is a really good book to refresh or improve writing skills. It has very detailed explanations and examples.
