Have you ever willingly read a writing guide cover-to-cover? I have. 7. Juli 2011
Von Denise - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In the past, I've had writing guides that I've flipped through, maybe I've read a page or two if I've needed to look up a specific issue, but this is the first time I've ever read a writing guide all the way through. This guide is entertaining!

Grammar Girl, because of her training in language and in the hard sciences, understands how to explain the importance of proper usage for clarity and she also explains when sometimes rules exist out of tradition. She also explains grammar myths and how to handle people who still buy into them. Her examples are easy to understand and fun (I especially like the section on misplaced modifiers). The quick and dirty tips and the pop quizzes throughout are also fun and handy.

Other bonuses include tips that perhaps were not designed specifically to help ESL learners, but would still be immensely helpful for such students. Tips like FANBOYS and ordering adjectives, for example, are things that many native speakers take for granted, but having them described simply but completely is helpful for any user of the English language.

Also included are tips for drafting and proofreading one's own writing. Additionally, she gives tips that as a comp teacher, I've tried to drill into my students' minds, like "show, don't tell," "avoid cliches like the plague," and "you need to know if a website is credible." I am so happy I have Grammar Girl to back me up on these points.

Personal anecdote: A couple of years ago, I was teaching comma rules to a technical writing class. I was trying to explain restrictive elements and nonrestrictive elements to the class and several of the students weren't getting it. They were frustrated and I was frustrated. As I read the section in this book about restrictive elements and nonrestrictive elements, I realized that if I'd just explained it the way Grammar Girl did, a whole lot of headaches would have been prevented. This book is coming with me to school every day so that when a grammar or usage question comes up, I can simply take Grammar Girl's wording and examples to explain it much more succinctly than I am often able on my own.(It's hard to come up with sentence examples on the fly, have you noticed?)

As a teacher, I have seen many writing handbooks, most of which cost upwards of $50. This book is a delight-- not only is it the best one I've seen in that it is fun, complete, and user-friendly, but it's also truly inexpensive. I am requiring it for my college composition class this fall, and I recommend it to every high school, ESL, and college writing teacher out there. Even if you don't require it as a text, you should still have it on hand in your book bag (like me) or have a copy or two in your classroom. Your students will thank you.

Helpful tips for writers of all ages 6. Juli 2011
Von Jessica at Cracking the Cover - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"The Ultimate Writing Guide for Students" is divided into an introduction, five chapters, an appendix, grammar at a glance, glossary and index, among other things. The five chapters focus on parts of speech, crafting sentences, understanding punctuation, quick tips on "dirty" or confusing words, and wisdom about writing as a whole.

Pop quizzes are scattered throughout to reinforce the explanations, and Grammar Girl offers easy and fun memory tricks to help with rules.

My favorite section of the "Ultimate Writing Guide for Students," is Grammar Girl's "Quick and Dirty Tips." Listed in alphabetical order, these entries range from "affect versus effect" and "farther versus further" to "it's versus its" and "lay versus lie." These entries get to the heart of the matter quickly and are easy to understand. And, as always, Grammar Girl's wit makes finding answers to sticky questions much more enjoyable.

My one complaint is the binding. This may seem trivial to some, but I would prefer a spiral binding for greater usability. I hate having to use another book to hold my reference book open. I suggest purchasing the paperback so that it can be spiral bound at Kinko's.

Is she my twin? 6. September 2011
Von Jared Winger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I teach college students English Composition. I feel like Grammar Girl (Mignon Fogarty) took my curriculum and converted it to a book. This writing guide for students is perfect. It's written in a very logical order and in a style that students should find easy to follow. As an instructor, I love her wit and obvious enthusiasm for grammar. I know most students are not excited to read about English and its grammatical rules, but this book makes those rules fun and gives hints on how to remember them. Although the title says this book is "for students," I think anyone who communicates in written form should own it. That means you.

Best Book Ever Written For Students Hands Down 25. Februar 2013
Von Douglas L Webb - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The Ultimate Writing Guide for Students by Mignon Fogarty AKA Grammar Girl is by far the best book ever written for students. The book is well written. It provides expert advice for students of every level. For beginners this guide covers all of the parts of speech, sentence structure and details like punctuation. More advanced students will appreciate the level of detail and depth. Grammar Girl has made English fun again. In an age when most students are simply phonetic texting from their smart phones, it's easy to forget that there will be times in their life when they need to have not just good writing skills but great writing skills. Students not only get graded on their writing skills for papers and assignments but this time in their life may be the only place where they get to practice and perfect the very writing skills that they will need their whole life. If that's the case then every student should be armed with the knowledge that's packed into this book. Students will like it because it doesn't dumb down the material nor does it bog them down in the weeds. Let me say it again. Grammar Girl makes English writing fun again. I was so impressed with this book that I provided a copy to my daughter's 8th grade English teacher. She said, "Oh I love Grammar Girl. I refer to her often in my class. I love her books; I frequently use her material in my classroom and I know a lot of other English teachers love her too." If you don't already know about Grammar Girl and the content that she has created then you are missing out. If you are a student you need to own this book. If you know a student don't just tell them about this book, go buy it for them as soon as possible. DW

Students didn't find it useful or entertaining. 26. Juli 2014
Von Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The colors were distracting, and it seemed to want to be a novel and a guide all at once. It wasn't practical or particularly good at explaining or offering sufficient practice. I think the author tried to tackle too many goals and came up short.

I'd recommend a spiral bound guide with tabs for really fast look-ups. And a different guide book.
