Fabulous  March 20, 2011
by


I am a college student and this textbook helps immensely when writing a paper for a class that demands a certain format. The tabs for the different topics are especially useful when trying to find a word. This grammar book is decidedly thorough, concise, and both extremely helpful and intimidating, especially to those who are grammatically-challenged. I would recommend it to anyone.






Little, Brown Compact Handbook: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
