One of the high-quality, low-priced entries in Longman's Penguin Academics Series, A Short Guide to College Writingis a clear and authoritative brief rhetoric that emphasizes analysis, argument, and research in academic writing. Engagingly written by a well-known author team, A Short Guide to College Writingoffers students clear, practical guidance. Students can turn to this book for help with everything from choosing a topic, writing an analysis, and documenting sources to constructing a paragraph and punctuating a quotation. Separate chapters provide support for revising a draft, editing a revision, or preparing a final copy. Discussion and examples of description and narration are included, but the emphasis throughout is on the most common college writing assignments: analysis, argument, and research. Students are taught the essential skills for effective college writing-skills they will need when writing for a first-year composition course, or for any other college-level course.
