A Writer’s Reference is easy to use and easy to understand. The handbook’s explanations are brief, accessible, and illustrated by examples, most by student writers. Boxes, charts, checklists, and menus are designed to help users find what they need quickly.

It provides authoritative, trustworthy instruction. Most writing resources on the Web offer information, but they don’t offer instruction. With the ninth edition of A Writer’s Reference, students have reference content that has been class-tested by students and instructors. Users who loved the new Writing Guides in the eighth edition will be pleased to know they are still here in the ninth.

It provides maximum flexibility for the teaching and learning situation. Instructors can choose from among three versions of A Writer’s Reference to meet their students’ needs: A Writer’s Reference, A Writer’s Reference with Exercises, and A Writer’s Reference with Writing about Literature. And our robust custom program provides endless opportunities to add original or publisher-supplied content.

It is available in affordable e-book formats that match our print books page for page and provide students with the ability to read, highlight, take notes, search, and share. Visit macmillanlearning.com/ebooks for more information.
