Meet the Author

Geraldine Woods began her education when teachers still supplied ink wells to their students. She credits her 35-year career as an English teacher to a set of ultra-strict nuns armed with thick grammar books. She lives in New York City, where with great difficulty she refrains from correcting signs containing messages such as "Bagel's for sale." She is the author of more than 40 books, including English Grammar For Dummies, Research Papers For Dummies, College Admission Essays For Dummies, and The SAT I Reasoning Test For Dummies.

    Great for students

    This is a great way to help students of high school age, to brush up on the Grammar. It also shows them what areas they may need help or review on. It was worth the money to see my students do better in their writing because they knew how to spot their errors better.
