Review:

With so many people looking at homeschooling their kids, or at the very least schooling from home in the upcoming Fall (for some only 6 weeks away!!!) school season, this is a book you just MIGHT want to have on hand to refresh YOUR memory of different parts of grammar, before you have to help your kids! Or you may want to brush up a bit, while you're at home, if you're looking to improve YOUR writing at work!

Either way this is an excellent refresher, or small tutor for those who may not have had great instruction on English grammar. As you can see above, you have simple explanations, that make SENSE to adults, along with some practice sections, to test what you have learned (don't worry, answers are provided in the back of the book!). Also included are some handy 'cheat sheets', that will help you with writing!

But really the JEWEL of the book is the second section, perfect for high schoolers and coeds especially, that shows the different types of SOCIAL writing that we encounter, and how to make it BETTER! Here's help for not only college essays, but for thank you notes for jobs (see sample below), but for presentations, employee evaluations, arguing over a medical bill, how to respond to an invite that you don't want to attend, even negotiating for a raise. I plan on using this as part of a 'Life Skills' class for my daughter, and homeschoolers especially will love this section! This is a resource book you need for the WHOLE family and we highly recommend it!
