This version of the best-selling college handbook prepares students to write well in college courses outside of composition. With practical advice and plenty of student models, a tabbed section "D" provides a jump start for writing college papers in nine disciplines — biology, business, criminal justice/criminology, education, engineering, history, music, nursing, and psychology. Each discipline section features information on audience expectations in that area of study, the types of questions asked, the types of documents produced, the kinds of evidence used, appropriate language conventions, and appropriate citation styles. Each section features a model student paper (two in business) written in response to a typical assignment in the discipline.

THIS TITLE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE 2016 MLA UPDATES! Our editorial team has updated this text based on content from The MLA Handbook, 8th Edition. Browse our catalog or contact your representative for a full listing of updated titles and packages, or to request a custom ISBN. For success in college, no skill is more critical than writing; it’s the very core of a student’s academic experience. Tested and trusted, A Writer’s Reference is an essential tool for students who are strengthening habits and skills that will support them throughout college. In an April 2014 survey of first-year writers, 75 percent reported that using a Hacker handbook made them a more confident academic writer. What’s more, A Writer’s Reference has been a powerful tool for change across college campuses—helping to create a culture of writing at many schools by supporting a common language for talking about academic writing. In that way, A Writer’s Reference is uniquely positioned to help transform attitudes about the value of writing instruction and the role that writing plays in academic work and in higher learning. With this eighth edition of the handbook, author Nancy Sommers invites you to be part of a community of those who teach and assign writing; who believe that critical reading, analytical writing, responsible research, and clarity are at the center of effective writing across the academy; and who use the nation’s best-selling and most responsive handbook to support the development of the college writer.
