Overview

Homework Helpers: English Language & Composition is a user-friendly review book that will make any student—or those trying to help them—feel like he or she has a private tutor. Each chapter includes detailed questions that allow students to assess how well they've mastered each idea. Not only does the author provide the right answers to these self-study questions, but also detailed explanations of why the wrong answers are wrong.

When is a comma used? Why are some titles capitalized? How are dangling modifiers prevented? There are hundreds of grammatical and compositional rules, many of them difficult to understand and memorize. And just as many exceptions to the rules!

Homework Helpers: English Language and Composition focuses on all aspects of writing, with clear lessons and exercises on:

• Parts of speech
• Punctuation
• Tone
• The writing process
• Types of sentences
• Types of essays
• Revisions
• Common errors to avoid

Students from high school through college will find this book to be an essential writing tool. Younger students can follow the lessons from beginning to end to learn everything they need to know about language and composition. The more experienced student can pick and choose lessons and exercises according to need—especially if they're facing the new SAT.

The Homework Helpers Series is just what students need to boost their confidence and give them the help they need to ace even the most challenging classes and tests.
