Pocket Style Manual 4e & Pocket Guide To Writing In History 4e [ePub]

by Diana Hacker

I bought this book, not with the intention to sit with it and read it from cover to cover one time. No, I bought this book because it was recommended to me by one of my English professors and she was spot on.

This book is great as a reference guide. It includes how to apply the styling guidelines by the three most know style entities: APA, MLA and Chicago; plus also shows CSE (which I must admit I just found out about it). In addition, the first part of the book is dedicated to how use grammar properly and how to build your papers.

There is a reference in the first pages to a website with additional (up-to-date) content about these writing styles.

I still plan to buy the original works, that is the APA, MLA and Chicago Manuals, but in the meantime I know this book will save me from those sudden moments when you realize that you have to add a particular citation to your work and you have no idea how to do it.
