Portable, straightforward, and concise, The Bedford Handbook with 2009 MLA and 2010 APA Updates is a must have for student writers who want access to an easy-to-use reference book. Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers have done it again with this handy resource cum handbook that is designed to give students a proper roadmap to research, technical, and academic writing. Carrying on with her class-tested approach, Diana Hacker (together with Nancy Sommers) developed The Bedford Handbook with 2009 MLA and 2010 APA Updates (ISBN 9780312652692) with the aid of fellow teachers as well as real students from hundreds pf universities and colleges. The latest edition has been formulated to complement how students compose and edit their work during and even beyond their classes. This textbook is also a handy grammar resource, offering practical and easy to understand tips, examples, and explanations that can clear up even the most confusing sentence structure issues many people run into, especially when writing. This is a well developed guide for those who have a hard time with writing mechanics and even those who simply want to re-learn basic writing and grammar skills. This revised edition is divided into 11 parts, the first half of which teaches students about academic writing, the writing process, how to make clear, grammatical sentences, and how to make proper word choices. The second half talks about punctuation, writing mechanics, document design, research writing, and challenges in the field of English as a Second Language. The last part proves to be one of the most useful portions of the book as it teaches grammar basics. Both Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers boast extensive experience when it comes to teaching and directing composition programs. Hacker is also a proud two-time recipient of the Braddock Award, which is given to outstanding authors.
