Quick Help, exercises, and charts are easy to access in several ways in Writer’s Help.

Quick Help

Quick Help is at the beginning of nearly every chapter in the grammar sections and at the beginning of many of the writing chapters as well. It’s a quick look at possible trouble spots that the chapter addresses, with examples illustrating a problem and the solution. In some cases, the examples and explanations are the only advice a student needs; in others, the links lead to content pages with more detailed information.

You can get to Quick Help in several ways.

 

Quick Help from the search bar

Enter Quick Help in the search bar, located at the top left of the main page. You'll see the cluster of the Quick Help pages in the first entry.
