Diana Hacker has created yet another successful reference for students who want to get better in writing. Rules for Writers also comes with 2009 MLA and 2010 APA Updates, allowing students to stay up to date with the latest writing standards. This book is an excellent tool either for personal or classroom study, featuring extensive content as well as writing exercises to help students with their writing problems more effectively. With the help of contributing authors Nancy Sommers, Jane Rosenzweig, Tom Jehn, and Marcy Carabajal Van Horn, Hacker was able to present timely solutions for common writing problems. Rules for Writers with 2009 MLA and 2010 APA Updates (ISBN 9780312664817) covers all the basics, ranging from the writing process to document design and various writing elements. Students will learn how to generate ideas, create a rough draft, make revisions, and build effective paragraphs. The document design chapter on the other hand teaches students about standard academic and business formats. The book also talks about grammar and common mistakes, as well as challenges faced by those who use English as a second language. This includes topics like verbs, sentence structure, articles and nouns, prepositions, and idiomatic expressions. Hacker even included other topics like proper punctuation, as well as proper use of mechanics like abbreviations, italics, numbers, capital letters, and hyphens. There is also a section about academic writing and research, as well as managing information to avoid plagiarism. Guides on how to write MLA and APA papers have been integrated with this edition, teaching students how to support a thesis, integrate and document sources, and follow the manuscript format. The sample papers provide excellent benchmarks. Rules for Writers is now on its 6th edition and still continues to lead the market, thanks to Hacker's class-tested approach.
