Writing skills handbook
Writing Skills Handbook is written for undergraduate writing courses in which instructors wish to spend little or no class time on matters of grammar and mechanics, yet want their students to have a concise, accessible reference tool to use independently for help with their most common writing problems. Deliberately brief, with no exercises, the handbook offers an overview of the research paper and provides models of the most frequently used citations. Writing Skills Handbook is part of the Houghton Mifflin English Essentials series.
