5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT RESOURCE 23 Feb 2012
By Joseph H. Race - Published on Amazon.com
I use this text for my English 202 Class on Saipan, and it is well-received by a mixture of Chamorro, Chinese, Korean, Filipino, etc. students. Good sample essays and other writings and the resources in the appendix area of the book are excellent, especially the grammar review. As an instructor, I liked it (easy to use), and the final test of a text is how it is used and appreciated by the students. It got at least a 90% "thumbs up," which is a good score for anything on a college campus. Good job Smalley, Ruetten and Kozyrev. The names alone are significant examples of how America is "a melting pot" of languages and cultures, and all can learn English.
4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says 2 Oct 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good book for all-round composition skills for EFL/ESL students. I bought it because a predecessor was using it on a course I now teach, but it leans a little too far towards creative writing for my needs - if you need formal academic writing, there are more suitable books on the market.

This is the best textbook I have ever read and the only way I could understand what my teacher is talking about.

I am a little bit disappoint with this product. It said in very good condition. I received a book with worn corners and some marks which is more than I thought.
