They write with purpose. They tune into their audience. They collaborate and seek feedback. They know credible evidence makes them credible researchers. They revise. "The Bedford Handbook," based on surveys with more than 1,000 first-year college students, fosters these habits and offers more support than ever before for college reading and writing. New writing guides support students as they compose in an ever-wider variety of genres, including multimodal genres. New reading support encourages students to become active readers. Retooled research advice emphasizes inquiry and helps writers cite even the trickiest digital sources confidently and responsibly. Best of all, the "Handbook "remains a trusted companion for students because it is accessible, comprehensive, and authoritative. Instructors benefit, too: A substantially revised Instructor's Edition includes Nancy Sommers's personal mentoring--more than 100 new concrete tips for teaching with the handbook. Finally, integrated digital content is easily assignable and helps students practice and apply the handbook's lessons.Read Less

Good reference book
The Bedford Handbook is a great resource, particularly for its detailed instructions and examples on MLA format. Although I accidently bought the instructor's edition, rather than the student edition, there appear to be few differences between them, mostly consisting of additional notes in the instructor's edition about grammar and writing exercises.
