    Great learning resource

    The first time I used this book was in my english class. I loved it, and so I had to buy one for myself. I have it right at home next to my desk. I use it everyday and I'm only in high school. It is very helpful with my essays and vocabulary. I take this book with me where ever I go.

    Great for adults too - Every office should have a copy

    Not only is this a great resource for young adults/ high school students, but it is also an invaluable refresher for working adults. I constantly refer to my 1994 edition from high school for my workplace correspondence. The style guides are comprehensive and practical. Many samples are included. I recently bought a copy for my office and it¿s proving to be a popular resource.

    This book has been a big help for my English 1 class. It has everything to deal with English and I use it a lot. It is the only book my English teacher has us read out of to get information.

    This is an outstanding resource book for both students and non students!

    High school students should keep this book handy to review the writing process, grammar points for editing, and examples of types of writing pieces. This book also contains a world of trivia. It's the best!

    I Also Recommend:

    A Trusted Companion for Six Years!

    I received this from a teacher in middle school and honestly have kept it with me with each successive year--its current state is now dog-eared and well-underlined. This has all the basic information needed to construct sound writing. An essential for any young writer, it's so easy to use and extremely helpful to find what you're looking for!
