This is an excellent resource for teaching college level writing. I looked everywhere for an exceptional, clear writing book which would help me to tutor two high school graduates. This one was perfect! It is the best writing book I have found in numerous years. I plan to use it for tutoring in the future, and many sections of it can also be used for teaching writing skills to middle school and high school students. I am a writing teacher--8th grade-and I highly recommend this book and the approach to teaching writing.

I am a teacher at two community colleges in Southern Illinois.

At one of the colleges, we used the Langan textbook for years to teach our composition classes, Now we no longer use it. I cannot understand why.

Langan is the absolute best textbook for this class. The material is presented in a simple, straightforward manner that is understandable for our students, The book contains many exercises and activities, which most other texts for this class do not. And this presents the opportunity for students to become active learners. Our students need simple, since writing is hard enough to learn, and Langan is the perfect text in that respect. The sample essays have humor as well as information that helps the student.

I am a big proponent of the Langan book and highly recommend it...I have used it for the better part of 20 years.

I just received my rental, I'm writing a review about it's appearance. I still haven't had a chance to use it since class starts next week.
Now, regarding the appearance, I know I got it for a pretty inexpensive price but that's no reason for me to receive it all bended, pages stained, pages stuck together and a couple of rips. I mean, it's still useable but please people, take care of the rental books, you might not have paid full price for them but there are other students that will be using them as well, and deserve to have a well maintained textbook.
this is an excellant text book and will give you a lot of exposure to various writers.

i had to purchase this for a class and am glad that i did. i'm way advanced as a writer for this to help much, as this is fairly basic writing and with so many years of producing technical writing for the military, it was too basic for me to get much out of.

however the many different authors profiled in text they wrote makes the book worth finding and getting a copy of for your library as i have for mine
Nice book and it's basically like the 9th edition plus you can save, ask your instructor if you can use this one in place of the 9th edition first.
The college course that used this book only referenced minimal material that was actually required to complete the course. This is often too common for an online course, where most of the material that is assigned is referenced in text outside the associated textbook. Due to the limited amount that this book was even used, I'll put a 5 star for the material that was actually needed to be read.
The first thing that I read in this book goes against everything I was ever taught in school. Some things in here seem like they weren't necessarily proof read before publishing.

Other than the few hiccups, overall solid book for ENG101 classes, and I would even recommend to high schoolers looking to get ahead.
A good English book with lessons that are designed to improve a student's understanding of our complex language.
