On Writing Well

I would break those down into two categories:  readings about writing/style, and essay-writing instructions.  The first two are in the first category, the second two are in the second.  You can absolutely do them concurrently, or alternating.


For concurrent, I'd do LAoW + Elements of Style followed by WWaT + On Writing Well.


For alternating:


Elements of Style


On Writing Well


I like and have used all four of these, so my 2 cents is worth that much, at least.  :)
