The familiarity of this handbook makes it one of the easiest for students to use. Why? Students using this text do not need a specialized "code" of organization that requires them to know established categories of writing information and instruction such as usage, grammar, and style. Instead, because the entries in A to Z are familiar and intuitive, students need only turn to a letter of the alphabet to find the appropriate entry that will answer their questions and provide examples. Easy-to-use cross-references also direct students to additional information.
