By looking at her own students' needs, Diana Hacker created an affordable and practical classroom tool that doubles as a quick reference. Developed with the help of instructors from two- and four-year schools, the sixth edition gives students quick access to the information they need to solve writing problems in any college course. In the Hacker tradition, the new contributing authors -- Nancy Sommers, Tom Jehn, Jane Rosenzweig, and Marcy Carbajal Van Horn -- have crafted solutions for the writing problems of today's college students. Together they give us a new edition that provides more help with academic writing and research and one that works better for a wider range of multilingual students. Flexible content options -- in print and online -- allow students to get more than they pay for.Read Less

A Must Have !
My English professor required this book (RULES FOR WRITERS, 5TH EDITION, by Hacker, Diana) alone with the book "SUBJECTS/STRATEGIES 10TH ED, by Eschholz, Paul A.. I must tell you these two books were the best combination of any two English books I've ever used. I excel easily in math; however, I struggle with English and specially writing essays. I honestly believe that it was greatly because of haveing the use of these two books that I recieved my very first A in a college English class. My bottom line on this book (well both of them) is get them...........even if they are not required. The cost for the books at Alibris was the best I found and your wrting and papers will benefit so much more then you could believe.
