    My bible

    This book has been my bible, since my sophomore year. I have marked it, and dog eared many pages, and always refered back to things. I recently lost my copy and have every intention of buying another one before I attend college as a creative writing major! Definitely an essential for anyone who takes their writing seriously!

    Definitely a good and useful purchase!

    This book is definitely worth the money, especially if you are a high school student. It provides so much insight, direction, and information that it is useful for more than one assignment and can easily be used throughout the years. If the book is followed precisely, there is little room for error. This book is also highly recommended and followed by teachers. I would definitely suggest it for any student or writer.

    Must for all high schoolers!

    This is an amazing handbook that all high school aged students should have! It has sections on how to list sources (with great examples), how to write a bibliography, proper e-mail use... This book is so packed with wonderfully practical information I can hardly contain my excitement! It's an extremely well written book that will help any student do better on many writing assignments. I recommend it highly.
