Writing Style & Citation Styles


Diana Hacker’s A Writer’s ReferenceThis is what I have used since I was an undergraduate. It contains sections on Composing and Revising, Effective Sentences, Word Choice, Grammatical Sentences, ESL Trouble Spots, Punctuation, Mechanics, Research Writing, Documentation (how you reference your sources), and Basic Grammar.  Her main website - http://www.dianahacker.com/ - is also useful. The book is available in UC Berkeley’s Undergraduate and Business Libraries: PE1408.H2778 1999


Another good resource is The Little, Brown Handbook (which is neither little nor brown). It covers the same range of topics as Hacker’s book above does.  The book is available in UC Berkeley’s Doe and Moffit Reference Libraries in print and multimedia editions: PE1112.F64 2001


The UC Berkeley Student Learning Center also recommends William Strunk, Jr.’s The Elements of Style. It is accessible through Bartleby.com [click here] or through their website. This book focuses on the rules of usage and the principles of composition.
