This was a required text for a recent course and despite my efforts, I ended up using one of my older composition resource books, and shelving this incomplete less efficiently organized one. I've listed my key findings below.

Positives (what works well in this quick access guide):
*It's a lightweight resource for the composition student.
*Spiral bound so it lays flat
*Small so it fits on one's desk
*Quick reference guide on the inside of cover.
*Updated MLA (albeit minimal) formating and works cited information
*Web and technology citation
*ESL reference

What I don't like and ways to improve:
*Explanations are marginal, missing and incomplete.
*Too few actual examples, if any at all.
*Text colors and highlighting are ONLY black and white so everything kind of jumbles into one tedious tumbled type that makes "quick access" to needed information a delayed and dubious challenge.
*Inefficient layout and labeling format. With the table of contents, your specific search may take a few tries.
*Glossary is incomplete.
*Too many references and not enough actual information. We can use the WEB and eliminate this book altogether. The information should be contained within, not just lists to more lists to more lists on the internet. This is unnerving.

Overall, I would and do use my ancient copy of the Little Brown Handbook 10/1 before opening this Quick Access Guide. Call me old fashioned but I prefer my older more complete "Little Brown Handbook" as it offers a more comprehensive and explanatory approach with numerous examples and a more user friendly, easy to find, (thanks to font style, color and positioning) layout page per page so you can quickly differentiate between definition, example and application without having to scan every word on every page! The book is also color coded along the side opposite the spine, (like a dictionary or bible) so you can enjoy super fast, printed, content rich material on your composition related topic.

Picture posted by customer is misleading because it shows access code in the back. Must have been purchased somewhere else. I called Amazon and they graciously refunded my money due to the misleading picture. Amazon price is great for book only. If you need an access code you'll have to pay a lot more elsewhere such as Pearson or Barnes & Noble for a book that comes with the access code. Benson.

I needed this book for class and used it twice a week, it held up really well. it seemed to be a bit fragile at first like if the paper was going to rip, but overall it was a good book and i definitely will continue using it.

This is exactly what I ordered and very close to the next edition. If your class asks for the newer edition, you should be fine.

Perfect book for my English college course. I can't stop learning new facts about English. Perfect for learning how English is form and how to use it correctly.
