From the Publisher:

Useful as a supplement to the handbook or as a primary text for basic writing courses, the S & S Workbook for Writers offers instruction and exercises on topics from punctuation to planning an essay. The Workbook's organization parallels that of the handbook, making it easy to use the books in concert.

From the Back Cover:

/*9707G-2, 0-13-097077-8, Lynn Quitman, Troyka, Simon and Schuster Handbook for Writers and Companion Website Access Card, 6/E*/ This bestselling, exceptionally easy to use rhetoric/handbook is both an ideal source for self-instruction and a comprehensive reference. Throughout, the information is chunked into small quick-to-find, easily digested pieces, and all parts of the book are color-coded at the top of the page--visible without opening the book. A multi-draft sample paper shows the writing process from various idea-generating and prewriting activities through three complete drafts; and a sample research paper is accompanied by a commentary detailing the writing process and research issues. Includes a full range of documentation guidelines—MLA and APA, Chicago Manual, and CBE—each quickly identifiable by its distinctive color bar down the outer edge of the page. Begins with coverage of the writing process, giving extensive attention to critical thinking and writing argument, followed by treatment of all aspects of style, grammar, punctuation, and mechanics. It offers complete coverage of research (electronic and traditional), research writing, writing across the disciplines, and ESL. For anyone wanting a solid tutorial and reference on the elements and process of good writing.
