    Without Hacker, I wouldn't have made it through college!

    This is hands down the best reference I've ever used! It covers everything a writer needs in an easy to find, tabbed system. The copy I have is a Used Rental from the campus bookstore, but I'm hoping I can afford to keep it once the semester is ended. If I can't afford it right away, I am definitely buying a new one as soon as I have the money! This text is a Must-Have!

    Another text book for english composition class. I think I would like to own this one. Good information provided. One day I just might be able to write well without thinking?

    I initially bought this back in 2011 thinking I was going to need it for some college courses. Turns out I didn't. But, as a "writer", I found it to be quite the indispensable tool and still use it as of today. I keep it on my bookshelf right by me. It's great for bloggers, writers, and students. The "tabs" provide easy access for the sections you might need: composing/reviewing; academic writing; sentence style; word choice; word choice; grammatical sentences; ESL challenges; punctuation; mecha I initially bought this back in 2011 thinking I was going to need it for some college courses.

The "tabs" provide easy access for the sections you might need: composing/reviewing; academic writing; sentence style; word choice; word choice; grammatical sentences; ESL challenges; punctuation; mechanics; research; MLA (Modern Language Association) citations; APA/CMS (American Psychological Association)/(Chicago Manual of Style) citations; and basic grammar. It can function not only as a textbook of sorts as well as reference for any kind of writing: creative, letters, blogs, or academic papers. This is one of the rare reference novels I take with me on vacations in case I want to do some writing. Of course, I should probably get a more recent version, this book is still in great shape.

    This book and other versions has always saved my academic life. I have used it during my undergraduate and graduate courses and I love it. It is the most helpful! The explanations are easy to read and understand. I still refer to it off and on when I need clarification on some things. This book is my bible.

    This is a classic reference book. Easy to use. Quick to find the answer. Fast to solve the problem. Spiral-bound, subject tabs, color-coded. Still useful for students, authors, professionals and teachers.

    I read this book at least once a year to refresh my grammar. And I reference it more than that. It’s easy to follow and understand. I probably should get an updated edition. I think this one is left over from my college years. I highly recommend this if you are an author.

    Comprehensive grammar and punctuation guide to the English language.

    I wished I had acquired this book sooner than now. This is a very handy reference book to use when writing papers and doing college work. My one peeve is that the author more often uses examples that favor a certain political or philosophical bias. I also wonder why the author placed the more advanced grammatical subjects before the basics. Still, this is will be my "go to" book while I write my academic papers.

NOTE: While this is a reference book, I read it from cover to cover first. How else would I know what is within if I do not scout it out first before I need it. I suggest doing the same when you get it. I glossed over some areas while reading it, but there were many reminders on how the English language works. I was pleased to discover how many of the areas were instinctual. Reading the rules helped me to realize why certain sentences seem awkward in the first place.

    *Total times read: 2 times. *ating: Currently 3 stars, possibly 3.5.* Again, another book required for my first college class (English Composition 1). I think this book can be SUPER helpful, but some things I feel could be defined better, or even explained. I don’t always agree with their examples they provide, such as where commas are to be placed. I think I will just rate this 3 stars for now, and maybe in the future I will make it higher. 2016-Summer-Reading-Review Update *Total times read: 2 times. *ating: Currently 3 stars, possibly 3.5.* Again, another book required for my first college class (English Composition 1).

Read for the second time, this time for English Composition 2. Still debating whether to rate this higher, but right now I am going to leave it because I have been stuck reading this book two times completely through since July 2016. Welcome to the college life. -_-

    These reference books are all pretty much the same. I've seen dozens (publishers always send professors text books in hopes they'll adopt them for their classes) and they're all pretty much the same. Major points of difference are completness and ease of use. This is a good one for that. Besides, Hacker is a classic.

    Like I said, they're all pretty much the same. But, once again, if you don't know most of this stuff . . . do. Especailly if you're a writer. But even readers can increase their comprehension, vocabulary / diction, etc. Good standard stuff to have lying around the house. Get it.

    This is a great tool for writers. I found it very useful. I went through the entire book and ear marked some places for use at a later date. This is a reference book I'll use a lot. The book is in sections which make it very useful.

    Fredrick Danysh

    This is a guide of writing and the proper usage of the English language. It is a useful tool for students and anyone else who writes. As a retired teacher, I feel that that the section on proper references is mandatory.

    Text for the English Comp class I'm teaching.

    This has been my grammar bible since college. (Well, the one I had in college, in the early to mid '90s, was a much older edition.) Hacker's product is a very user-friendly reference book.

    This book is helpful to whoever has something to write about from academic essays to personal essays.

    There's a reason this is required for students coming into University.

    I've had this book since college, even took it with me when I studied abroad for two years, and I still find a constant use for it.

    Learning is never truly done. This is a great reference to creative writers.

    Not as good as Strunk & White's book, but a good reference, anyway. More up to date on some stuff that I rarely use, like business headers & such.

    John Wick

    A very excellent reference book for anyone who wants to know how to write using formal styles correctly. APA, Chicago, MLA, CMS, etc. This is my little writers bible for school.

    Hacker writes a strong writer's reference here. This was my preferred text while teaching.

    Looks like I picked this up at UC for $20 and used it quite a bit, for work probably. Very handy layout with tabs.

    Not terrible as reference guides go, more helpful information on writing and organization than most. I remember the old New Style manual we used to use that was crap. This blows that book away.

    This book is an English major's best friend. On every paper that I have done I have had to consult this book at some point or another. It is a permanent fixture on my bookshelf.
