9780205574612: Essential College English (with MyWritingLab) (7th Edition)

Essential College English is a grammar workbook with lucid instruction for the traditional principles of basic grammar, punctuation and mechanics, and usage. Ample writing opportunity is provided throughout the text to help transfer grammar skill into writing.

 

Incorporating a friendly and engaging tone throughout, the authors focus on the traditional principles of basic, sentence-level grammar and usage. Each chapter begins with a practice "Find the Error" activity, progresses to lessons and numerous exercises to reinforce each lesson, and concludes with further review and editing tests to help students retain what they have learned in each chapter. This text also provides a greater emphasis on writing as well as journal and writing assignments at the end of each chapter.
