This handbook is designed to help students find quick answers to their questions about the writing required in their workplace and in the real world. 

 

Muriel Harris was the director of the Purdue Writing Center where she worked elbow-to-elbow with students and for over twenty-five years.  As she worked with students, she realized that they asked the same questions over and over.  Based on her experience with thousands of students in the writing center, Muriel Harris authored this spiral-bound, tabbed and brief handbook.  Her unique feature, "Compare and Correct," and "Question and Correct," allows students to find what they need to help themselves with their writing, without needing to know the terms of grammar.  Muriel Harris' Prentice Hall Reference Guide is the easiest handbook for students and instructors to use.

Review:

The inclusion of career-specific writing advice and examples are wonderful. It meets the needs of career-minded students, both in terms of educating them in the realm of academic writing and writing specifically for their chosen career-path.

Heather Marie Leger, Everglades University

 

I like the way the text is organized, in a logical, easy-to-follow manner.  The project, overall, receives high marks from me.”

Esther Sapell Rachelson, DeVry University

 

“This is a book that every student at a technical school should have as a tool of the trade.”

Ben DeSure, Pittsburgh Technical Institute

 

“Writing for specific professional needs will enhance the career preparation for students.  The author appreciates that students in specific career paths will write almost exclusively for a specific audience.  Knowing this audience will be crucial to student success.”

Dale Weinbach, The Art Institutes

 

“PH is working hard to be relevant to our students.”  

Carmen Lanning, Keiser College
