I guess it is one of the most useful handbooks one could find being a college student. It is an all-in-one writing resource. The book practically contains numerous samples of writings, both student’s and professionals. Those works cover a vast variety of topics, disciplines, and subjects. Thus each student can find something helpful in there. It is great as studying material and as the example of how different types of writings should be performed. Thus you will get a helping hand in completing your endless assignments. The most useful parts of the book, as for me, are the Learning Outcomes of each chapter. They shortly note what you are expected to know.
Thee are also numerous editions of the book, so be careful to choose the latest one, as it includes the biggest amount of essay samples along with great instructions in argumentative writing and citation updates.
I guess I have never seen a bad review of this book. Therefore, I strongly recommend you to get one. It is all you need to perform your assignments on a top level.
