Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This third edition of Kate L. Turabian's Student's Guide for Writing College Papers is designed for high school, junior college, or college students faced with writing their first long, documented paper. Besides the book's step-by-step directions for all aspects of paper writing, the sixth chapter, "Some Matters of Style," has been extensively revised, and the List of Reference Works useful to students has been recompiled and greatly expanded by Donald F. Bond, a specialist in bibliography. Students and teachers will appreciate a new system of numbering each paragraph which facilitates locating any desired item through the Index or cross-references in the text.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 183-244).
