Recognizing that most college writers today use computers and the Internet for composition, The New Century Handbook, Brief Edition, is the first short handbook to fully integrate computer use into the writing and research processes. Chapters on writing not only explain the various stages of creating a paper, but also incorporate instruction on how students can use word processors to create better developed, well-written essays. Likewise, the research section acknowledges students' varying experience with computers and the Internet; it illustrates how to find and evaluate print and electronic sources to formulate thoughtful and carefully documented research papers. The chapters on grammar and mechanics offer a complete reference guide and tips on how to work with grammar- and spell-checkers.
