9780321107572: Guide to Rapid Revision (8th Edition)

This new edition retains the hallmarks of its predecessors: brevity, accessibility, and practicality at an economical price. The Guide to Rapid Revision gives students immediate answers to specific problems, offers sufficient information to solve them, and does so with extreme brevity and clarity. With a table of correction symbols that doubles as a table of contents, and extensive cross-referencing, students can easily find answers to specific problems or grammatical queries. Instructors can use the added, topically organized table of contents as an aid to focusing on certain topics (such as punctuation) during the semester. The book is alphabetized according to common correction symbols, setting it apart from all other handbooks that are designed to help students in revising.

The Seventh Edition builds upon its reputation as the most effective and economical solution to the widest variety of writing problems writers will encounter. This comprehensive guide uses the most effective teaching method there is: showing, not telling.

Further, the content is arranged alphabetically by correction symbol, a feature found in no other handbook. This format gives readers instant access to information relevant to the problem at hand and helps them learn the principles of the English language so they do not repeat the same mistakes. Gives readers immediate answers to specific problems. Offers sufficient information to solve them, yet does so with extreme brevity and clarity. Presents a table of correction symbols that doubles as a table of contents to help students easily find answers. Cross-references a network of logical relationships among subjects that appear under separate headings. Helps develop writing style and addresses ESL problems. For anyone who writes, especially for composition, creative writing, and business and technical writing.
