We used Jensen's punctuation last year and I thought it was a very thorough book. Based on the sample pages, the vocabulary book looks just as good!

Have not used this particular book before, but have used Jensen's 9-12 grade grammar book. My daughter enjoyed the grammar book.

What edition is this? Is it very different from the first edition or can I purchase this one for an English class that is using the first edition?

We used this in grade 12 to keep my son sharp and he really enjoyed it! However this is not an easy course so use it after an introduction to the subject
