Overview

For Freshman-level writing courses, such as Freshman Composition, English Composition, First-Year Writing, Expository Writing or any course where students need help with grammar, research and documentation.

The material in SF Express is drawn from the Scott, Foresman Handbook for Writers, which is now in its seventh edition and has been a leader in the market for more than fifteen years. The Scott Foresman Handbooks have long been recognized as exceptional for their coverage of research, documentation, and technological topics and for their student-friendly approach to grammar and mechanics. SF Express shares these strengths.

SF Express is unique in providing coverage of a full range of writing issues in a pocket handbook format. It begins with six chapters on critical writing and thinking issues, including a separate chapter on writing logical arguments. And its treatment of style, design, and visual/online literacy is fuller than that provided in competing handbooks. The book offers all these features in an attractive, affordable, student-friendly format.

Note: Spiral bound
