Sin Boldly: Dr. Dave's Guide To Acing The College Paper

Sin Boldly: Dr. Dave's Guide To Acing The College Paper
 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tired of correcting the same mistakes year after year, hoarse from endless repetition of the same rules, at long last frustrated by the inability of students to grasp his words of wisdom, Professor David Williams has put it all down in a book: the dirty truth about what college professors and other teachers are really looking for as they grade student papers. Outrageous and wise, Sin Boldly! goes where no other how-to-write handbook has dared go before. Personal, perceptive, and purposefully provocative, this book offers students crucial advice on the entire writing process. From choosing a paper topic to adopting a persuasive voice, shaping an argument, and organizing an essay; from political correctness (or lack thereof) to matters of style, punctuation, and usage, Sin Boldly! is crammed with information, ideas, and examples that will entertain and instruct even the most confident students in their quest for the A+ they all think they deserve.

Synopsis:

Outrageous and wise, "Sin Boldly!" offers students personal, perceptive, and personally provocative advice on the entire writing process for college papers. 25,000.

Synopsis:

An irreverent guide to clear, concise, and persuasive writing.
