Every college student should have a copy of "Write For College." It contains information on so many things, for instance, the writing process, revising, proofreading, sentence structure, grammer, writing a college essay, resumes, reports, analytical writing, literary analysis, MLA and APA documentation style, note taking, test taking, building a vocabulary, speech giving, punctuation, capitalization, spelling, weights and measures, the periodic table of the elements, world maps, and the U.S. Constitution. There is even a section that has tips on how to deal with test anxiety! It is well worth EVERY penny. This is an indispensable resource.
I was required to purchase this book for 12th grade AP English and I found it very valuable and useful. Though I used it in high school, this book would be beneficial to college students as well (since most college students don't have a good grasp on writing). Not only does it explain the standard grammar rules and the like, it outlines how to write a research paper and gives sample paragraphs and papers. This book is a great tool for anyone looking to sharpen their writing skills!
This is a MUST for college-bound high schoolers. Offers details on every aspect of writing in an easy-to-find format. Will be ordering it for graduation gifts from now on!
I've taught college-preparation English for many years and I strongly recommend this book to any student who will soon be attending college. This is a great gift. The book is in new condition.
