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.
