Overview

With SF Express, the authors have created a pocket handbook unique in its treatment of issues frequently not covered in a book of its size: including a sound introduction to critical thinking and the writing process, document design, and writing for the web. Includes Pre-eminent, cutting-edge coverage of electronic research. Presents more documentation models for all five systems - MLA, APA, CMS, CBE, and COS - than any other pocket handbook. Includes a complete model MLA research paper. "Express!" boxes at the beginning of every chapter provide immediately useful information about the chapter topic. "Destinations" on the Web URLs are included for helpful Web site references. Chapter 1, "Critical Reading," helps writers deal with the kinds of materials they'll encounter both in college and the work around them. Chapter 6, "Writing for the Web," features concise, but complete treatment of Web Writing. "E-tips" throughout share strategies and information about using computer and online resources for writing. For those seeking a pocket-sized handbook to enhance their writing and critical thinking skills.
