Thinking about adding some special rhetorical flourishes to your writing? Peruse Erasmus' Copia: Foundations of the Abundant Style (published in 1512, Latin title De Utraque Verborum ac Rerum Copia)...or read Shmoop's guide to the AP English Language and Composition exam.

This guide is loaded with review, drills, and more practice exams than we hope you'll need, so you can learn...

  • how to prove that you are a good reader and a good writer.
  • how to love non-fiction.
  • how to hypnotize people with your writing. Or, at least, persuade them to do your bidding.

Can you identify the tone of this study guide? Perfect.
