Praise for The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation

The Old Schoolhouse | The Family Education MagazineNever has there been such a well-arranged, easily navigated guidebook as this. One of the most practical, usable, beneficial resources, it doubles both as a quick reference/study guide and student workbook. And I must say, I am impressed with the price. The Blue Book is expanded; it's nicer and it's fuller, taking the guesswork out of editing, writing, and grammar. I love all the grammar and punctuation/capitalization exercises in the back and appreciate that the answers are provided!
