Dr. Mary Ellen Guffey's Business English helps students become successful communicators in any business arena with its proven grammar instruction and supporting in-text and online resources. The perennial leader in grammar and mechanics texts, the 10th edition of Business English uses a three-tiered approach to break topics into manageable units, letting students identify and hone the most critical skills and measure their progress along the way.

Packed with insights from more than thirty years of classroom experience in business communications, Business English also includes access to the author's new premier website, www.meguffey.com, and its many resources for building language skills, including all-new, interactive exercises.


Teaching with Dr. Guffey's textbooks and the dozens of supplementary materials she makes available is a joy. The addition of the instructor and student Web sites has made the transition to and inclusion of the computer very seamless in my Business English and Applied Business Communications classes. Thanks for the tremendous support!

Students coming to our program frequently have weak language arts skills. After using Guffey's BUSINESS ENGLISH, I see a dramatic change in their learning interest, skill level, and test results. In the legal field, support staff members must have top-notch language skills. This text and its many ancillary materials enable me to offer my students a better education.

Your textbook is the best I've used in 18 years of basic business English instruction.

Customer Reviews

Best textbook ever March 17, 2011
This textbook guides you from the basic to more complex language structures, with a great deal of exercises to practice what you have learned. I really enjoyed the way it explained the proper uses of English in a business environment. It contains a lot of the simple mistakes people always make and answers a lot of uncertain grammar questions we always have.
The exercises at the end of each chapter and the self-help exercises are extremely helpful.
