The DK Handbook’s take on academic writing is visually appealing, highly readable, and convenient to use. Its advice targets novice academic writers, who can find simple but complete guidelines on how to plan, develop, and polish the kinds of writing expected of them in their studies. Through extensive examples, annotations, step-by-step instructions, and visuals, the guide makes what are often dry topics engaging, especially for a generation of students who are used to visual explanations and simple but appealing page design.

 

For writing instructors, the guide serves as a one-stop guide to which students can be referred, providing the kind of “writing centre” help that many students need. The handbook includes all the features most likely to appeal to Canadian instructors and students.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Helpful! Writing papers has become easier since I bought this resource. I only use one section of this resource, but only because that is all I need, not because the other sections do not have the potential to be helpful. The APA and MLA guides are very useful, detailed and easy to understand. This is a must-have for any student and anyone who needs to reference a resource.
