Can I sell you some books?
This is the page in which I try to sell a student or an adult learner you know some books. The authors are my husband, Tim, and sister-in-law, Peggy.
Both have taught college level classes for years: Tim, as an adjunct, and Peggy, as a full-time professor. They teach business students – people who don’t intend to make writing their vocation. Still, the students are required to write their papers in specific academic styles. For more information, continue reading.
Easy Way Books
Tim and Peggy Houghton are a brother and sister team who together have over 30 years of college teaching experience. In those years, they graded many academic papers that required students to write in both MLA (Modern Language Association) and APA (American Psychological Association) styles.
Though the complete manuals for each of those are terrific resources, Tim and Peggy thought it would be easier for students to have access to condensed versions of the original manuals. To that end, they produced MLA: The Easy Way! and APA: The Easy Way!, both of which are quick and simplified guides to the respective styles.
Reviews have been solid
“This book presents MLA style in a clear and concise manner in three sections: 1) in-text citations; 2) reference list; and 3) examples. It won’t answer all your questions, but it covers most,” writes one Amazon reviewer.
“I purchased this book as an afterthought, but after reading the first three or four pages, it became one of my best investments. Ms. Houghton takes the reader step by step in setting your computer up in APA Style, then the remainder of the book is a quick reference for some of the most frequently used information. It’s compact and now rides in my briefcase all of the time. I have several other learners at my workplace and they now have ordered copies as well,” writes another.
