Master the basics of writing with Wilson and Glazier’s THE LEAST YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ENGLISH: WRITING SKILLS. Its simple approach (time-tested for 35 years) allows you to strengthen your writing on your own with clear explanations, real-world samples, and 170 exercises that provide instant feedback in all areas of writing. Parts 1-3 cover the basics of “Word Use,” “Sentence Structure,” and “Punctuation.” Part 4 on “Writing” helps you, in a brief, easy-to-follow way, write all types of paragraphs and essays (from narration to argumentation) and helps you strengthen all types of skills (from writing summaries to including quotations)that you will use in college and beyond. In the twelfth edition, a new section in Part 4 covers “Writing in Response to a Reading,” and a new chart offers valuable “Tips for In-Class Essays.” Each area includes brief explanations followed by plenty of exercises with a complete set of answers in the back of the book so that you can instantly apply what you learn to your writing and commit it to memory. Exercises on a variety of topics broaden your knowledge of science, art, history, film, literature, social studies, and the media while you are learning more about English. When the course is over, THE LEAST becomes a valuable reference for all your future writing needs.
