Summary: English at Hand is a concise, easy-to-use reference tool for first-year college writers and researchers as well as for more advanced students needing quick answers to writing questions.

Key Features

1. It is compact. This 72-page booklet can be easily carried in a notebook or three-ring binder, in a folder of essay drafts, or in a backpack. 2. It is accessible. The booklet lies open flat during use. Its clear organiz moreation and headings, enhanced by use of a second color, and its thorough index, including a detailed table of contents on the inside back cover, help students quickly find answers to their questions. 3. It is thorough. English at Hand reviews the basics of traditional English grammar and the conventions of academic and professional punctuation, mechanics, spelling, and usage. In addition, it offers the following: explanations of the most common sentence errors and how to correct them; advice on constructing clear, effective sentences; valuable ESL pointers for nonnative speakers; advice for writing effective paragraphs, essays, and research papers; and MLA and APA guidelines for documentation, including on-line sources. Throughout the explanations are always brief, clear, and fully illustrated. 4. It is versatile. The book can be used as a handbook of basic English skills for students in beginning writing courses or as a comprehensive review for more advanced students. It also functions as a reference book for anyone needing quick answers to writing questions. Since each rule in the book has its own number and letter (shown in detail in the index on the inside back cover), instructors can use it as a correction guide, writing in the margin of the student's paper the "code" for each rule the student has broken or needs to review. The student can then use the index to look up and study the appropriate piece of writing information. 5. It is inexpensive. Selling to bookstores for a low net price of only six dollars, English at Hand is a modestly-priced resource that all students can afford. less
