9780205551781: Developmental Exercises for LB Brief

LB Brief offers the authority and currency of its best-selling parent, The Little, Brown Handbook, in two briefer, spiral-bound formats (one with tabs and one without tabs) at affordable prices.


As in its previous edition, LB Brief provides students of varying skills and interests with clear, reliable, and accessible explanations of handbook basics–the writing process, grammar and usage, and research writing. The Fourth Edition builds on the handbook’s usefulness with four main emphases: (1) reading and writing across the curriculum, including an expanded chapter on academic writing, showing students how to write in response to texts, and more coverage of argument, with information on how to handle opposing views and strengthen an ethical appeal; (2) research writing, including expanded discussions on how to find and evaluate print and Web sources,  and a new research-paper-in-progress; (3) up-to-date documentation guidelines, including the most recent revisions to MLA and APA documentation styles, with numerous models of new media in each style and new annotated sample sources; (4) more writing process instruction, including a new student work-in-progress and new discussions of voice in writing.

From the Back Cover:

Success starts here.

What can I do about writer’s block?
Is it she and I or her and me? Is it who or whom?
How do I get started on my research papers?
How do I use the Web for research?
How should I cite my sources?

With concise, easy to understand answers to these questions and more, LB Brief will help you succeed in any course that requires reading, writing, or research. An authoritative and accessible reference at an affordable price, this handbook provides complete coverage of writing in and out of college, grammar and usage, punctuation and mechanics, the research process, evaluating and documenting sources, using computers and the Web, and applying for a job, along with over 120 exercises that allow students to practice skills. LB Brief is a tremendous value and an unbeatable resource.
