    1. According to the blurb on the back cover, NEWSWEEK has said the MLA Handbook is The style bible for most college students, and I m confident this is very much the truth Nevertheless, this indispensable guidebook fails quite miserably in qualifying as a joy to read, and, thus, I am led to ponder that Satan himself may be using Joseph Gibaldi as a pen name If the Bible was the greatest story ever told, then the MLA Handbook is, perhaps, the greatest necessary evil ever written.So, I ll average my [...]

    2. A great, terrifying scrutiny of every single thing you need to know about writing a proper, acceptable thesis Super annoying, super useful Confusing with its wealth of detail but really simple if you know where you re headed I got a really blasting headache making sense of it.Citing a thesis is definitely harder than writing a thesis Now, please spare the poor person who spent years on researching and writing Wasn t that enough for you folks up there Leave us alone

    3. Useful, yes Also, it makes good kindling when you re ready to go on the lam after murdering people due to the absurdity of the MLA format.

    4. Chapter Guide1 Research and Writing2 Plagiarism and Academic Integrity3 The Mechanics of Writing4 The Format of the Research Paper5 Documentation Preparing the List of Works Cited6 Documentation Citing Sources in the Text7 Abbreviations If you borrow than once from the same source within a single paragraph and no borrowing from another source intervenes, you may give a single parenthetical reference after the last borrowing The second parenthetical citation omits the author s name This omission [...]

    5. So I m not real sure how to edit this, but it was a challenge In an effort to improve my knowledge and grammatical and editorial skills I decided, like A.J Jacobs did with the encyclopedia to read this thing straight through I did glean a bevy of knowledge on how to cite appropriately and I now k ow that the abbreviation for ezra isezra, but overall I d say to leave this book fir what it s meant forferencing for when you re unsure of something instead of reading it all the way through.

    6. At some point in my life, most probably when I was in college, but maybe in high school too, I used this book as a guide to writing a research paper I didn t read the book cover to cover That would be silly.I ll probably have to use it again if I ever write another research paper The chance of that happening is slim.

    7. I ve never found a MLA formatting book that I ve been happy with This one lives up to the low standard I ve grown to expect for MLA books It seems every time I need to do a strange quotation, these books never really have an answer in an easily findable existing manner.

    8. This book use to be my go to source for research papers In recent times, my professors assign special standards for research papers.

    9. MLA, man mag es oder hasst es Ich bin eigentlich andere Zitiersysteme gew hnt, die deutlich logischer strukturiert sind Im MLA System fehlt mir eine durchgehende Logik Wie auch immer, es ist nicht an mir zu entscheiden, wie MLA auszusehen hat und dass es eigentlich komplett schwachsinnig ist, bei Webseiten keine Links anzugeben und bei B chern keine ISBN, das m ssten die Geisteswissenschaftler unter sich ausmachen.Letzendlich hat dieses Buch einen eher begrenzten Nutzen, es gibt bessere Webseite [...]

    11. Naturally, this has been the go to citation format guide for years, as I had this text assigned to me when I was a college student and I ve assigned it as an English professor to my classes Thus, it has a monopoly of sorts on the market, you might say, as any other texts I ve perused lack the level of detail that this father of all citation guides possesses.As a brief aside, yes, citation format can be a pain and it can seem nitpicky, but it is beneficial for keeping track of sources in an organ [...]

    15. What this book lacks in entertainment purposes it then makes up for it in the educational aspects There is not one element of MLA style that they have not covered in this book If you are trying to cite something you can look it up in this book and they will have dozens of different examples for every possibility I used this book a lot for my Comm III class and it helped me understand why I needed to do certain things while writing a paper Also, if you are a organizational freak like me, this bo [...]

    16. When I was in college this was the standard for research papers And I d agree it s much easier to use and lucid than the Blue Book I d later have to use for legal citations It s true though that this edition, published in 1995 is probably dated And given I ve finished my higher education, I can t see a reason to keep it any longer on my shelves but it sure gave good service during my college years and if you re in or about to enter college I d certainly recommend getting whatever is the latest [...]

    17. This was my core book from my subject bibliographies class in school It was incredibly useful and my copy has all my notes, highlights, and underlines of the key points of referencing print materials and web documents.Purely reference Lol, marking this as read amuses me, since I didn t read it cover to cover, though, my copy is well used.Too bad a the new edition is out so the shiny sixth is a bit out of date.

    18. I had originally purchased this book because it was required for my British Literature class I find this odd, since he never assigned a paper However, it did come in handy for the paper I had to write in my political science class, so there ya go As far as instruction manuals go, this one was pretty in depth, yet easy to understand If you are just starting out writing papers or if you need to put some polish on your work, this is a good volume to check out.

    19. ho ho what fun if you ve ever had to take an english class.i m sure you hate love this book too i don t even know how this book gets sold any citation changes so often, and there really does seem to be a real shift towards ama, or apa, or whatever the hell the citation that starts with an a is.

    20. Mind boggling read All in all it has to be read to fit in, communicate, and be part of an association with such rules At times i wished it would be in the shape of info graphs Explaining through nice attention grasping, not dull illustrative examples If thisIf thatIfIfIfIn cases of

    21. The Purdue OWL is probably the best source in the world for anything writing, however this manual comes in at a close second to the OWL because of its ease of instruction the instructions are clear and concise, and you don t have to hunt all over the book for the info you need.

    22. A good guide for beginners, but it does not cover the needs of anyone actually serious with style Contains some questionable advice, including the one on capitalising coordinating conjunctions in titles of works while setting subordinating conjunctions in lower case Seriously.

    23. UGH BLAH EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY did you have to make your contents SOOOOO SPECIFIC I am having so much trouble writing my bibliography Is the APA method any easier I will see But who cares, teachers decide anyways ok I will stop complaining

    24. Can t believe I m reviewing this But it s a bit rubbish I keep getting sources which it doesn t specifically cover Also, would be nice if they could explain exactly how to use MS Word to coordinate its facilities with the whole gamut of resources available.

    25. This book is a necessary reference for students who are required to write research papers in university, college, and school settings.What s great is after purchasing the book, you can also access a site with the online version of the book that includes examples features.
