As tedious and horrible as this book was to complete, it was worth every second of the time. The guide is a comprehensive look at English grammar that covers just about everything that you need to know. It was not as entertaining as, say, Eats, Shoots, and Leaves but this is a book for school and not a guide for the casual reader. The exercises were dull as anything, but I can tell you that I will no longer be mistaking "Who" or "Whom" any more.
English 3200 served its purpose - a succinct and engaging overview of grammar and usage. I really liked how the grammar points were introduced gradually so that the reader has some chance of remembering them. Also, the layout of the book is quite unique in that you are given instant answers to each exercise when you turn the page - no flipping back to an answer section at the end.
