Simon and Schuster Quick Access Reference for Writers based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Quick Access is widely used because it offers information fast and easily. This book helps us in the writing process. Some of its facilities are: The dividers, which give easier access to the contents. Q.A. Boxes synthesize and emphazise useful information. Other important and very necesary Quick access's issue is its references and guidance about four of major styles of documentation: APA, CM, CBE, and the most used for me: MLA, which is one of styles frequently used by writers. Other help that Quick Access offers us are the grammatical rules to get correct sentences, mechanics of spelling, etc. You will enjoy this book and you will improve as writer with the help of this book. Try it.
I think this book was really helpful.It had a lot of topics that helps beginners in writing.It also had a step by step process on how to do all of this topics.
From my point of view, this book is wonderful. It has some characteristics that can develop or improve our skills as a writer. In order to prove the above mentioned, I will cite some examples. The first one, is its easy usage. The ESL information is easy to find becouse it has a yellow tags that provide a single manipulation. The second characteristic is that this book is based in MLA Guidelines, APA, CM, and CBE documentations, which give us detailed instructions to make an Essay, Work Cited, Research Project, Outline, Bibliographic, and so on. The third one,is the QA boxes, which has summarize and clear information. Finally, the Quick Access to help with usage rules and with grammatical terms. In short words, this text that makes the information optimally accessible in a brief book.
At the begining, you will think that is a weird book, but when you get to use it, you'll find that is easy and helpful. You can learn how to write better, with less gramaticals errors. I learned more about the MLA format, which is important.
