really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction-read, books-for-english-teachers
Read from May 06 to 24, 2011 — I own a copy

Yes, this is a grammar book. Yes, I read it for school. Yes, I liked it. In fact, this is one of the best improve-your-writing books (correctly placed hypens) I've read. It is fun, gives good tips, and even better, has exercises to help you practice what you've learned. Okay, I realize that might not be for everybody, but this was a pleasant surprise for me. We are so impressed at school that we are going to be writing some curriculum for our students using this book. Ms. Trenga not only sold me, but will make a few well-deserved dollars when we buy copies for our students. It is not often that you can get a writing guide that helps you teach for $10. Yippee!
