My tutors all use A Writer’s Reference as they work with students in all disciplines. It is the only handbook I feel confident about, and it's the one we recommend and refer to all the time.
Phyllis Benay, Director, Center for Writing, Keene State College

Why do I still require a handbook? I like everyone having the same materials to work with—a common language for all students to use.
Maria Ramos, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College

The common handbook, A Writer’s Reference, is useful as a campus-wide tool. The handbook helps us have conversations about argument, premises, evidence, and authority not only with our students but also with our colleagues.
Shevaun Donelli O'Connell, Buffalo State College

I appreciate the instructor support and guidance.
Sundi Rose-Holt, Columbus State University

I like that I have been able to customize the book with my own course materials.
Vicki Hendricks, Broward College

The integrated media will reinforce the instruction I do in the classroom, engage my students outside of the classroom, and provide additional help with whatever they are having trouble with.
Christian Horlick, Virginia Commonwealth University
