The Journey to Better Grades Starts Here

Because writing and research are required in many college courses, you need an accessible, easy-to-understand reference that can provide understandable answers to common questions. The Longman Pocket Writer’s Companion is an inexpensive, pocket-sized guide that provides answers to the questions you may have about grammar, writing, researching, and documentation. Offering a distinctive focus on writing for different audiences–academic, public, and workplace–this handbook enables you to communicate more effectively. Its superior support for writing across the curriculum, along with up-to-date documentation coverage, will help you get better grades in all your courses.

Why You Need This New Edition

A new chapter on Writing in the Disciplines (Chapter 9) will set you up for success as your college career progresses by helping you write the kinds of papers commonly required of majors, such as interpretations, textual and visual analyses, abstracts, lab reports, and researched reports.

New documentation entries illustrate how to cite sources such as blogs and podcasts, genres so new that they aren’t covered in many texts.

A new section on Ten Serious Errors will help you recognize and correct major errors–such as fragments, run-ons, and unnecessary commas–that make it hard for readers to understand your writing.
