Overview

The Basics offers students of varying abilities the support they need to succeed in college. The fourth edition retains and enhances the features that have made this writer's handbook so popular: exercises throughout the book, a reference system unencumbered by complicated numbers and letters, a comb-binding and tabs for easy reference, and simple and concise explanations of grammar and usage.

New coverage expands the discussion of grammar and usage; of the writing process (particularly paragraph development); of critical reading and argument; of oral presentations and essay exams; and of designing and writing with computers.
