9780072839951: Rules of Thumb: A Guide for Writers, 5th Edition

Rule of thumb: A method or procedure derived entirely from practice or experience [ . . . ] a roughly practical method.- Oxford English Dictionary

Brevity and practicality are the hallmarks of Rules of Thumb. The 2002 APA Update Version reflects the most current APA and MLA documentation styles and remains the ideal handbook to improve grammar without overwhelming student writers with specialized terminology, or – at under $17 in most bookstores – with expense.
