"The writing exercises and the suggested topics are a strength of this series. The exercises concerning the identification of types of sentences were most helpful for my students. My students find the suggested topics most helpful as they are generic enough to allow individual interpretation."
"At a Glance "is easy to follow and understand and because of this, some of the fear of writing can be eliminated."
