Product Description:

This popular book by Jane Straus is both a reference guide for the rules of grammar and punctuation, but also a workbook that provides exercises to review those rules. The first 60 pages of the book contain the most common rules of grammar and punctuation. Topics include subject and verb agreement, pronouns, modifying parts of speech, problems with prepositions, fragments, commas, semicolons, parentheses, hyphens, dashes, capitalization, writing numbers, and much more-basically all the grammar rules you need to know in high school and college. The middle section of the book has over 60 pages of rules for commonly confused words like who vs. whom, that vs. which, good vs. well, etc. Along with each rule, there are one or two examples so students can see the rule put into practice. The final part of the book contains numerous quizzes (2 sets of exercises for each grammar topic or punctuation mark), as well as a grammar pretest, a grammar mastery test, and a punctuation, capitalization and writing numbers pretest and mastery test. The pretest and mastery tests given are great for before and after evaluation, and the exercises for each topic ensure that students know how to use the rules they are learning. Exercises generally prompt students to find errors in sentences, rewrite sentences, pick the correct word for the sentence, or identify parts of a sentence. These review methods are probably more effective at incorporating the rules into real life than multiple choice or matching exercises found in other books. Answers for all the exercises are included in the book. This is a great quick reference book with effective tests and exercises, and it is also well organized, practical, and easy-to-use. Reproducible. 201 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

These materials are also comprehensive in scope but are supplemental as opposed to more complete programs.

This book covers the basics for what you need to communicate intelligently. It has tons of review for everyday grammar. I'm purchasing it as curriculum for my 11 yr old.

I have an upcoming 11th grader and I needed a good grammar review to go with our Co-op Literature class. This one looks great and also doubles as a grammar resource in college for writing papers.
