Overview

The words you use say a lot about you. Grammar makes a lasting impression on friends, co-workers, and teachers, but learning the rules has always been boring. That's why the folks at The Princeton Review created Grammar Smart.

Grammar Smart uses a witty, irreverent approach to help individuals write and speak with greater clarity and confidence. Instead of boring readers with countless rules and confusing grammatical terms, The Princeton Review shows them the logic behind each correct sentence. Everything in Grammar Smart is nuts-and-bolts English designed to help readers express themselves more clearly. They'll learn how to choose between "that" and "which" and when to use "as" instead of "like," and they'll know for sure if this is between "you and me" or "you and I."

Includes:

• The basic parts of speech — nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.
• Pronoun-verb agreement and parallel construction
• Tips on how to avoid misplaced modifiers and dangling participles
• Lively, humorous examples to illustrate meanings
• Brief question-and-answer reviews

I love this book. I wanted to brush up on my grammar, so I checked out 20 books on grammar from the library. This little book explained a great deal in simple to understand language. I especially liked the tricks to help choose the write word for different situations. I think anyone who wants to improve his wrting/speaking of English would benefit from reading this book.

I have a very good english teacher. I'd rather go to him than read look for answers in this book. Some of the definition were wrong; unless, they were worded wrong.
