Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary

If you are a student in the United States you must have this dictionary beside your desk.

This is the grand-daddy of style books, and for good reason. It's the book most teachers were raised on and it continues to offer the best advice in a compact format that's emminently usable.

This is the book to have on hand to solve your college essay style questions. For a long time I didn't think teachers really cared about proper style, as long as everything was good and consistent. Then I got marked down for a stylistic error on a college essay. Oh, the humiliation! I wish I had had this book to refer to while I was proofreading that essay.
