I’ve been on an endless mission to improve my writing. I have ordered and read almost every writing and grammar book I could find online and in bookstores. One night, while researching more of these types of books, I came across this series. I read all of the reviews on Amazon and on a few other sites and they were all extremely positive, so I decided to give this book a shot. The moment it arrived in the mail I opened it and began reading through it. It was like a refresher course in everything I learned in High School and early college. There are lessons, examples, and even exercises at the end of each chapter so that you can practice what you've reviewed. I am almost about sixty percent through this book at the moment and will finish it soon. I am probably going to get the other books in this series as well if the rest of them are like this one.

If you’re a writer, student, business professional, or just someone who cares about the way he or she writes, you definitely should add this book to your collection.

This is an excellent book for anyone who wants to know the basics of grammar and punctuation, and it is also one of the few textbooks I kept after finishing the course. It covers subjects such as commonly confused words, comma rules, and sentence structure in an easy to follow layout. It also includes a lot of practice pages, which I found very helpful. I'm not a grammar snob by any means, but I do believe it would be a wise investment for many of the self-publishing authors I see on Amazon.

I love this series -- it's straightforward and easy to teach in portions rather than having to go sequentially through the book as you do with other workbooks. However, I was ding-dong enough to buy all three forms -- A, B, and C. If you read the footnotes at the beginning of B and C, you'll note the instructions/content/topics are the same in all three Forms -- the only thing that changes are the exercises. For my purposes in a high school English classroom, only one Form would have been fine since I could have created my own additional exercises as needed.

The information covers basic parts of speech through essay writing and includes remedial through advanced types of exercises and topics. I particularly like the possessives and contractions as well as the doubling-before-suffix lessons. I can't say the information is rare, but it's nice to have it all in one handy reference that's genuinely full of practical instruction and lacks unnecessary narrative.

For those that need to refresh those little annoying English bits, this is an amazing book. I love how its broken into small chapters, which have review questions to test your knowledge. I've been reviewing it with my son and have found he hasn't learned this in school, even though he's in 8th grade. It's a book every family and college student should have. I've looked at newer & older versions of this book, they are all about the same, so it's your choice to purchase new (way to expensive) or use the older version.

I used it to review my reading and writing skills for taking state required teacher's tests. It is very well structured and drill style, so although it still was challenging, very comprehensive. Ideally, I should have had a support system of a proof reader/ writing coach ( at least a person to read and comment on my writing) while following the book, but I didn't have anyone handy then. Still it was extremely useful to have this book. Buying it is a little too costly, so I rented the kindle version. If you need it only for a week, free sample could be just as good.

I bought this as a used book and was very pleased for it was a prioritized book for my english course in college. I really enjoyed that they were able to ship it in 2 days knowing that I had to have this book by a certain time it was a real pleasure. This book has everything that you need to know about English! As the title says, once gone with the professor it's a great hands on book to help you perfect sentences and use proper punctuation. Perfect book if you are a struggling with your English sentence structure.

This is a super straight forward, no nonsense guide to grammar, punctuation, and writing. Should be more popular than it is at the high school level.
He found it extremely helpful. He failed the TOEFL the first time he took it, but after working with this book (and one more like it) he passed both the TOEFL and completed the university placement exam with a 70% score! He is a big fan of this book and credited it with helping him pass both.
