An English professor (and a good one) of mine back in the day didn't like this book, bless her heart, but , bless her heart she was wrong.As the title implies, the book reminds us of what we should know. And it covers those basics in an easy-to -follow format.It covers grammatical terms, the mechanics of writing, the writing process, Writing related to business, among many other things. What helped me a lot was its advice on the forms of certain letters.The book has been through many revisions and is the best one that I have seen. This or something like it would be valuable for anyone who needs the rules of writing close at hand. I say "something like it" because this was written before the online revolution and so some of the advice is probably archaic. But even if that is the case, this guide will still give a solution to many of the problems a writer faces.

I also had to purchase this book my freshman year of high school 20 years ago! It was very helpful through high school and college. I just pulled it out to help my husband since he has returned to college. It was just as useful. I am looking forward for an updated edition only to address the computer age. I am so glad I kept it after all these years. What an heirloom!

My husband and I both had to purchase this book as Freshmen in high school. What a blessing! We have each had our books for 23 years and now our oldest son is using our edition to help him with his project papers. It has really helped all of us tremendously. I can't wait for the updated version to arrive!

I purchased this book when I was a senior in high school. It was a great resource then and still is today at age 38 and my kids are using it now too. I've never seen anything like it. It's the best.

I was "forced" to purchase this book for my tenth grade English class. Our teacher told us we'd keep this book for many years to come. I'm 30 years old, an attorney and still referring to this wonderful little reference book! In addition to covering English skills, it contains a wealth of information. From covering the metric system, measurements and conversions to our constitutional amendments, this little book has a lot to offer.

I was required to buy this book in junior high, and I can honestly say that I learned more about English grammar and composition from this book than from any other I have ever owned. User-friendly, down-to-earth, and easy to understand, this book is the best to buy for any student struggling with English.
