Y 'all don 't buy this. I received mine in the package and was already open. It was a complete scam.
   Essential for adjusting to higher learning
Sure, you can google all this, but the googled info isn 't really well structured as this review. Short and to the point, yet seems to cover most, if not all questions about how to write in an academic setting. The structure of this book is great, you find what you are looking for fast. Trust me, I gave just 1 star to another book required by my class that was awful, supposedly it taught what this book does, but in reality it is an overly stretched version of this with little to no substance.
I purchased the printed spiral bound copy of this book new, not rented, not used... it says inside the book that you have access to the Inquisitive website, but the book does not give the required code. It also says on the back cover that the ebook is free when it is packaged with a new book, but again no code. I am very disappointed to learn that I must now purchase an access code for my daughter in order to be able to use the book in her college class. This should be stated plainly under the product description!
It exactly replicates the print book. EXCEPT it leaves the last page and a half covering S-4 verbs to P-11 numbers. In my print book, this is almost a hundred pages of material, though it looks like it is probably only about 40 pages.
   Not as Described
The book description indicates that it comes with the linkcode for the described companion software. It took two contacts with Amazon and finally a contact with the publisher at Amazon's suggestion to get what was described. I was required to provide specific receipts and obtain information to this third party publisher to get the needed information.
   Good little book but missing online subscription
The product details : The third edition adds a new section on editing the errors and the option to include free access to InQuizitive for Writers, which provides practice in editing the same errors ), but nowhere in the book or Amazon was the option to include free access to InQuizitive. It is only $15 to buy, but makes it annoying when the book makes it seem like it should be included. I feel like I've been ripped off because of this. The book is essential for a few classes, but looks like a really useful book for me after a quick glance.
   No access code!
The book came quickly, but without access code, so that I have to purchase it online. If I had known that I would have saved money by buying it from the schools - bookstore.
   InQuizitive access code not included!!!!!!
This purchase I made for my daughter. She was expecting to receive an access code to use the InQuizitive app. There is no option to select this option. She has already removed the shrink wrap, so she can not return it according to the sticker. No place to type in the receipt info at InQ. Have contacted the site InQ to resolve the issue. It costs $15 to sign up, not much, but cryptic information on the product page. Once I learn more details, I will update my review. See the latest update below.
   Helping to stop Corp. America's destruction of the English language!
I have produced corporate training for a Fortune 10 company and I use this handbook all the time! It is very common in corporate America for commonly abused terms, punctuation and capitalization to become normal and accepted. This is where it becomes difficult to choose the incorrect usage. If the incorrect usage is not corrected and published, it can be embarrassing. Want to figure out what is actually a semi-colon? Want to tell that co-worker that their use of beautiful and complicated text is inappropriate and ruining a bold language. '' This handbook helps me review and edit materials without the shadow of a doubt!
   Great handbook to use for revising & much more :)
This was recommended in one of my English courses, and after receiving it fairly quickly on Amazon, I realized how handy this little handbook is for editing and constructing my papers!
