College Grammar on the Go, Second Edition: A Review of Common Grammar and Punctuation Errors for Today's Student on a Time Budget by Catherine A. Riccio-Berry

This is the book for people who already know the basics taught in grade school, but who struggle with the nuances of grammar and punctuation expected in higher academia. It is not a comprehensive review of English grammar, since books like that often seem overwhelming to the student who doesn't know where to begin or who simply doesn't have the time to review every single grammar rule. Instead, this book pinpoints the most common writing difficulties found in higher education and explains the grammar rules in clear, concise terms with examples. In particular, this book addresses common issues with apostrophes, commas, misplaced modifiers, and pronoun agreement.

The primary goal of this book is to get you, the student, to a point where you understand and can incorporate these rules into your own writing as fast as possible. After all, college (and life) is busy enough without having to relearn all of your English grammar from scratch!
