Textbook--I have the teacher's guide to go with it. Free to good home.
Sure it has funny little pictures that make it look like it is written for elementary school students, but the examples are wonderfully clear and silly enough so that you remember the rules. I have had and used this book for many years.

Forget all of those stuffy grammar and punctuation handbooks so often handed out in high school and college composition classes. *This* is the handbook you need.
I used this writing handbook in high school as was required. Still a useful guide when I need to get back to the basics in my writing.
This resourceful book has helped me through high school and college. I'm hanging on to it after all these years because it's a great reference to go back to for information.

I think this book was written mainly for high school students due to its content and format. It is well-organized, clear and easy to read. It supplements students' writing skills with outlines of a certain type of essay ( persuasive essay ,business letter, research paper, response to literature, etc. ). However, I find this book to be dull and not very specific. All the rubrics are almost the same for different types of essay. Therefore, I would recommend this book to a freshman or a sophomore b ...more

This is good
I've used this book to help teach writing, but don't hand it out as a textbook. I've also used it through Sylvan.

What makes them excellent is that these books break down writing into simple parts and use a lot of examples. The way the pages are formated with bold, graphics, and such also make them easy to use and not as intimidating as say Warriener's. They contain both grammar and direction on different types of writing.
The plasticized cover of the ugly yellow old '89 version resists both Sprite and being hucked across the room in rage.

But keep it handy and you will never be confused by a gerand, present participle or proper apostrification of either its or it's. At least for the next 30 minutes...

Rather than being geared towards one field, Writers Inc. is a wonderful reference to turn to for any type of writing. I wish I would have known about this source in undergrad! -Corey

This was my writing guide/grammar book in high school, which I never actually used at the time. I think I actually stole this copy from the "newsroom" of the Pow Wow, my school newspaper.
Excellent handbook on writing skills. Very well organized so that you can find what you are looking for quickly, and the point form it uses was very user friendly.
This is a great english resource. I still use it, even though I bought it early in high school.
