Now updated with expanded documentation, research, and academic writing coverage, The Brief Penguin Handbook with Exercises continues to revolutionize the way handbooks present information.
The design and approach of The Brief Penguin Handbook with Exercises started with ideas and suggestions from real students, and thus it is uniquely successful when it comes to giving students the information they need in a format they will actually use. With unique visual guides and models for writing, research, and documentation, distinctive coverage of writing for different purposes, and Lester Faigley’s clear, accessible explanations, The Brief Penguin Handbook with Exercises has established itself as the best-selling handbook to enter the market in eighteen years. The Fourth Edition of this extraordinary handbook continues to lead the market with completely reorganized documentation chapters; new "maps" at the opening of the research and documentation chapters, to help students navigate the research process, as well as navigate and find answers in the handbook itself; and selected new "Student Writer" sections to demonstrate the messy, thoughtful processes that students go through when using and citing sources.
