A pocket Guide to Writing History is a simple to understand theory book, but can be seen as overly simplified. Rampolla is an assistant professor of history in Washington D. Rampolla specializes in medieval studies, and is not only published but presents The book A Pocket Guide to Writing in History, was a quick and easy to understand book that helped the reader to go step by step through the writing process.

Rampolla specializes in medieval studies, and is not only published but presents frequently on this topic. The book covers a range of topics that would help students such as how to prevent plagiarism, and proper note taking skills.

Rampolla breaks the book down into sections with key themes such as units on plagiarism, working with sources, and then a section dedicated specifically to history. Within each main theme Rampolla then breaks it down into key ideas in which she elaborates further. The section entitled Writing a Research Paper is especially useful for those in the historical field by helping you go through each step to the process and explaining in depth each portion to writing a paper properly.

In this unit using the sections on locating sources, helps students understand distinguishing each type from one another as well as how to best locate them for research. Following the sections on sources Rampolla discusses proper note taking this not only flows well but help with the step by step process of researching, presenting it in this fashion helps create a linear thought process with researching.

Although Rampolla sets up the book in an easy to read and follow fashion the use of simple grammar and modern connections can be seen as irritating for upper level students. The book provides a basic understanding for students just entering into college, but for a student who is versed in writing it can seem basic, and not very informative. More advanced students may find the information to be basic as things such as plagiarism and preventing it has been taught throughout college and at a higher level is already well known, and knowing to properly cite is nothing new to students.

Rampolla provides a great source for introducing students to writing, but it can be to simple for those at an upper level. At a college level the book A pocket Guide to Writing History is a quick and easy to comprehend book for writing history, although it can be seen as to simple for a college student in their third or fourth year. The book is great for those just entering into the field of history to help them understand common mistake that students make. By knowing these mistake students can prevent themselves from making them and have better papers, as well as studying skills.

Overall I would give this book a 4 out of 5 rating for providing an excellent source of information for a wide range of students, but found the over simplification to be frustrating. I actually used and relied on this much more than I thought I would.
