    Solid no-nonsense primer on the essay-writing process

    A good clear, basic summary of how to write an essay. Concentrates on the actual process of creating an essay rather than getting caught up in trivial stuff like grammar. Especially helpful in covering the necessary stages before actually writing -- brainstorming, outlining, etc. -- and in giving you a basic format to follow for any essay.

    Great for beginners!

    This is great for high school students and to an extent for Freshman in college. The contents are organized in an efficient way and the book gets to the fundamentals directly, focusing on the basics in hopes of instilling the grand idea behind the essays and what teachers look for. It's not detailed and complicated and shows a step by step process to writing essays in which all students can appreciate in my opinion. The exercises in each chapters are also a great way to get one's feet wet so to speak!
