This book was a replacement for one my wife gave away as a gift learning English. A great reference book on basic grammar, sentence structure, etc. Just a great reference book to have on hand. Helps with kid's homework also.

Great condition and shipping but...
This book arrived on time and in very good condition. However, nowhere in the body of the listing did it state that it was the instructors edition, not the student edition. So I have an instructors copy instead of a student copy. The description could be much clearer on which edition of the book is being shipped.

Full of Examples
Great details and full of lots of information. We only used the book once in class, but it is a keeper to reference for any English concern you may have.
