To the student

As a process, it involves a number of steps that often overlap: thinking, planning, revising, and editing. The written product is judged by the richness, appropriateness, and precision of its vocabulary and style as well as its grammatical accuracy. In this book,you will practice the writing process and acquire the tools to perfect the final product.
