Written in Diana Hacker's clear, concise writing style and friendly, unpretentious tone.

Successful reference features from The Bedford Handbook adapted for the workbook, including hand-edited sentences, quick-reference charts, and a user-friendly index.

Abundant exercises -- most of them connected discourse -- written specifically for developmental students and using engaging cross-curricular topics to introduce, drill, and then review the points.

Guided practice exercises in every section that identify problem sentences and show students where to look for explanations and revision strategies.

Clear and simple advice for culturally diverse students, in a separate section and now in boxes throughout the book.
