This book was extremely helpful! Also taught a few ways to argue effectively. I used it in a on-line course where the teacher didn't really interact with the class at all, and never returned our papers, so everything I learned was from this book, and it was a great teacher! Too bad I needed to pay for the class to get the grade on my transcript, I could have had the same result by just reading the book and not taking the class.
I was very happy with this purchase. Although the book was for an English class, the material in this book is beneficial for writing papers for both school and work.
I am a college Freshman and I was required to get this book for research and MLA purposes. Our instructor explained that there were different editions for the book each put in print within the same year, and the only way to decipher between them would be a colored dot on the cover. Unfortunately for me, the image shown for this product had an orange dot on the cover (the product the teacher told us to acquire) while the copy I received in the mail did not. I was not pleased to find that the dot had not fallen off, since it was an image not a sticker, but I can still use the product.
When I received it, it was in good condition and full of information for me. My only concern is that at times I wonder if I'm using the wrong information when writing my papers. It would have been more professional to show a distinction between the books or actually show an accurate edition of the book being sold (in the picture).
This book was required for my son's honors composition class. The teacher decided to use something else at the last minute. It is a good source for post graduate research.
Needed it for a class. It served it's purpose
Thank you'''' this book is very good'and it seems like a new one for me. I think it will help me a lot in my study.
This is an excellent textbook for those who are interested in learning about the basic skills for research writing. I, myself, have just started Research Writing, but I know this is going to be a very helpful tool this semester.

I hope this review helps anyone looking for a reliable textbook to learn research skills from.
I purchased this book with the 2009 and 2010 MLA format but when I received it, it was an older version. Do not purchase your books from these people. I know people who've had the same problem. These people are dishonest. Please save your time and money and buy your books from someone else.
