The words you use say a lot about you. Your grammar makes a lasting impression on friends, co-workers, and teachers, but learning the rules has always been boring. That's why the folks at The Princeton Review created Grammar Smart.

Grammar Smart uses a witty, irreverent approach to help you write and speak with greater clarity and confidence. Grammar Smart doesn't force you to memorize dozens of confusing grammatical terms. Instead, it shows you the logic behind each correct sentence. YOu'll learn how to choose between "that" and "which" and when to use "as" instead of "like," and you'll know for sure if this is between "you and me" or "you and I."

Grammar Smart includes"
*the basic parts of speech-nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.
*pronoun-verb agreement, parallel construction
*tips on how to avoid misplaced modifiers, dangling participles
*lively, humorous examples and stories to illustrate meanings
*brief, interactive question-and-answer reviews

Don't worry-you won't end up sounding like an eighteenth-century nobleman. Everything in Grammar Smart is nuts-and-bolts English designed to help you express yourself more clearly
