9780024035912: The Writer's Brief Handbook

The Writer's Brief Handbook offers student writers a wealth of essential information in a clear, concise, and user-friendly format. A new four-color design, comb-binding, and fifteen tabbed sections enable students to easily and quickly locate and access up-to-date advice on key topics in composition. The latest edition of this versatile resource continues to emphasize in-depth coverage of the writing and research processes and grammar, while adding a range of new material designed to meet the changing needs of today's students. The new edition retains a wealth of student and professional writing examples that help establish realistic expectations for students' writing, but now also includes additional coverage and examples of document design, electronic communication and Web design.The Writer's Brief Handbook's treatment of research has always provided the best information on using libraries available in any brief handbook. Now its research coverage includes even more on Internet search strategies, and evaluation of sources, and more models for citing electronic sources. In addition, its technology package has been expanded to include two new resources: The Longman ExerciseZone and Plagiarism Tutorial CD-ROM, and an Interactive Edition CD-ROM, including the full text along with video clips, Weblinks, and contextually appropriate grammar quizzes and activities.This revision includes increased attention to the writing of arguments, including coverage of Toulmin and Rogerian approaches, and to writing from sources, especially summary, synthesis, paraphrase and plagiarism. Recognizing students' needs for practical advice in communicating in both college and career, the authors have also added a new chapter on oral presentations and new coverage of scannable and online resumes.
