About the Book

A Writing Handbook . . . and More!
Write for College is a complete writing handbook, covering everything from the writing process to writing essays and research papers, from writing with style to writing letters and resumes. Two significant features of the handbook are (1) the extensive collection of writing models and (2) the detailed discussion of the research process (MLA and APA models are included).
Write for College also proves helpful on another level. Sections on reading, note taking, speaking, and test taking make Write for College a comprehensive learning resource. There's even an almanac containing maps, tables, charts, and the U.S. Constitution. Any student enrolled in college, or planning to attend college, should have a copy of this handbook.
Here is a preview of its contents:

  • The Writing Process Presents a detailed look at the writing process and provides strategies for all steps in the development of writing.
  • The Basic Elements of Writing Offers advice and insights for writing effective sentences, paragraphs, and academic essays.
  • The Forms of Writing Addresses nearly every form of academic writing—from a personal essay to a summary report, from an essay of comparison to a position paper, from a persuasive essay to a literary analysis.
  • The Research Center Outlines the steps in the research process and provides sample parenthetical references and bibliographic entries for both the MLA and APA style.
  • The Tools of Learning Covers everything from strategies for reading and note taking to guidelines for test taking and preparing speeches.
  • Proofreader's Guide Answers any questions a writer might have concerning punctuation, grammar, usage, and mechanics.
