This is a great handbook for students that are about to start university. It contains chapters on all the essential stuff: researching, writing, grammar, punctuation, plagiarism, and more. The content is concise and easy to read.

Extremely useful resource for ALL students, or anyone really, looking to reference essays and reports appropriately. THE LITTLE PENGUIN HANDBOOK provides a well-presented and detailed account of common referencing styles including Harvard and APA systems. It is pocket sized, lightweight and spiral-bound for easy use and travel.

I highly recommend.
