About the Book

Having taught English in middle and high school, extension and occupational school for over thirty years, I have witnessed an unfortunate downward trend in the quality of grammar books and supplementary texts. Despite the fact that SAT’s and other proficiency assessments continue to require knowledge of higher level skills and similarly of many of the fine points of language, the aforementioned books (as they once did) generally do not address those areas of study (or rarely do).

Consequently, this quick reference book was developed to fill in the gaps.  It is an excellent source for explanations and examples of almost any question students, teachers, and others might have.

This handbook is brief, user-friendly, and very practical.  It is even occasionally humorous for what some would consider a traditionally dry subject.  The contents have been well-received by test groups for whom they have produced excellent results and will continue to do so for all who take advantage of A Quick-and-Easy Reference to Correct Grammar and Compostion
