A good essential read for students to help them draft and proof read work.
Practical and easy quick reference guide. Terms are clearly explained often with examples. Although the basics of grammar this guide would be suitable for all advanced levels of study as a reference and to the point grammar guide for any student. The exercises are great for checking what you have just learnt and could also be used as a class task especially if a group is having a similar grammar problem.
