    not helpful

    This is not suitable for a student on college level. I didn't learn anything from it. It basically stated things that should come with common sense. It only helped with assigned readings. I got an 'A' in English 101 without looking at it.

    Basic

    Basic in its approach to writing, this book may be useful for high school English classes but is totally unsuitable for college students. Although it contains some worthwhile fiction, most of the non-fiction pieces are not very challenging for college readers. The text is extremely prescriptive, and leads students to write formulaic papers rather than original and creative college level essays.
