Unlike the instructor's editions that accompany other handbooks, this one can be held in your hand. This hardcover annotated edition extends the handbook lengthwise, so that it is a convenient size to bring to class. Information for instructors is placed at the bottom of the appropriate page, leaving the text page itself clean and uncluttered. This material is clearly distinguished from the student edition by a rule and by a colored screen. The annotations include the following information: answers to all of the lettered and numbered exercises in a convenient place for classroom use; Scholars on writing-annotated bibliographic references to pertinent scholarly and professional articles and books; and Writers on Writing-quotations from well-known writers on the composing process. In addition, the annotations include cross-references to the handbook's ancillaries, so that instructors can quickly see what additional resources are available in the ancillary package.--page IAE-2

"The late Diana Hacker wrote reference books on various writing-related topics and this, her web site, is an incredibly rich repository of resources for researching, writing and citing materials. While resources like the Glossary of Library and Web Terms are very useful, the real standout here is the extensive explanation of documentation styles. Four of the major styles (APA, MLA, Chicago, CBE) are represented here (divided by area: Humanities, Social Sciences, History, Sciences). Users can access examples of each type of citation using drop down menus or see the styles in action by perusing sample papers written in each style. The research guides are basic, but solid. This site is an excellent resource for anyone who uses one of the major citation styles as well as for students who need basic assistance in starting their research"--Reviewed Mar. 23, 2004, "Best Free Reference Web Sites 2004," RUSA Quarterly, Fall 2004.
