The best handbook is the one that students will use. Now available in a Fourth Edition, Keys for Writers continues to build on this formula for success. In addition to offering students the clearest organization and most accessible, user-friendly features of any tabbed handbook, Keys for Writers maintains its hallmark strengths: color-coded tabs that further simplify navigation; thorough coverage of grammar in one convenient section; unique KeyTabs , which are moveable note cards and bookmarks; a wealth of convenient Key Points summary boxes throughout; concise, student-oriented writing style; and an extensive index.
Three main enhancements set the Fourth Edition of Keys for Writers apart from the previous editions and other handbooks. It has been thoroughly updated throughout, offering the latest coverage of research, documentation, document design, and writing online. It includes many lively new student writing samples throughout, such as demonstrations of the writing process, workplace and job search writing, and the research paper using MLA documentation style. Lastly, it contains a greatly expanded and improved section on argumentation, including a full sample argument paper.
