About the Author
Geraldine Woods began her education when teachers still supplied ink wells to their students. She credits her 35–year career as an English teacher to a set of ultra–strict nuns armed with thick grammar books. She lives in New York City, where with great difficulty she refrains from correcting signs containing messages such as "Bagel′s for sale." She is the author of more than 40 books, including English Grammar For Dummies , Research Papers For Dummies , College Admission Essays For Dummies , and The SAT I Reasoning Test For Dummies .

I have used this workbook to tutor some of my college peers that are English Language Learners and it seems to have worked pretty well. I would recommend this as a resource to use along side other resources and curriculum when tutoring. The book will also work well for independent study.
The reason for one star missing is that the content of the exercises tries too hard to be funny which is a little distracting from the grammar itself.
However, the information is very good.
