9780072293876: The McGraw-Hill College Handbook

This handbook is both a comprehensive reference to stylistic principles and rules, and an accessible guide to the full writing process. Each stylistic rule is systematically presented, giving an explanation; several carefully chosen and sometimes humorous examples; a brief discussion of the examples, and reinforcing exercises. Examples from published works, both fiction and non-fiction, address current topics and include many samples of work by women and ethnic writers. The text offers insights and coaching in writing, style, usage and grammar from handbook authors who not only contribute to the academic literature, but also enjoy success and critical praise in the popular press. Checklists are included at critical points within each chapter to provide a review of key topics and a chance for students to self-test. This edition features interdisciplinary examples and exercises and provides coverage of special topics, such as writing about literature, argumentation, business writing and writing in-class essays. It also includes a new chapter on writing in the disciplines and expanded coverage of the research paper, which includes sample papers in both MLA and APA formats. In addition, the first four chapters on the writing process now incorporate greater emphasis on the documented essay. Critical thinking and researched writing are also emphasized and there is a new ESL appendix of grammar, usage and mechanics advice, which is referenced in the text margin.
