Along the way, you’ll discover a set of simple rules that will allow you to write rapidly and clearly. Deadline stress will become a thing of the past as you learn how to manage your time by implementing the three-step formula of pre-write and re-write. In addition, the essentials of grammar and punctuation, easily confused words and other useful tips for writers are covered.

The result is an invaluable, easy-to-use reference that will allow you to:

  • identify appropriate style and usage
