Great for STARTERS only! Good little book, but I'll take her full version any day for upper COLLEGE LEVEL and grad school level work ("A Writer's Reference"), even at twice the price. It's been worth every dollar I paid for it and then some! I've used many ref guides: Ms. Hacker outstrips them all by light years.But this little guy is very handy, and will get you where you need to go with citations and such as long as you're into basics. PERFECT for high schoolers and for freshmen/sophs in college, but beyond that: GET THE BIG BOOK ("A Writer's Reference")! It's too good to pass up!. kimmax said A must have for any student! Do not pass up!. I have taught high school junior English for 16 years, and Hacker's manual is the best I've foundby far.First, since many schools have abandoned grammar altogether, many students have little grasp on basic skills. This manual allows students to take a refresher course, complete with detailed examples. Also, this manual helps students with tedious writing strategies that are not taught in some schools. For example, voice, tense, person and tone are all covered, as well as transitions, introductions and effective conclusions. It's easy to read and understand. Finally, in the area of research, MLA, APA and Chicago. Beginner or Profi Brian This is a very good reference tool to assist the beginner or the profi. I have used this book since my freshman english class, ten years ago. I have recently used it to assist German friends learning english here in Germany. Glad to see it is still around.
