5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable tool, 21 Mar. 2004
This review is from: The Student's Guide to Writing: Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (Macmillan Study Guides) (Paperback)
I found this book particularly good; it is written in a very clear and succint way and highlights the everyday's mistakes that students (but not only) are falling foul.
Some people say that spelling and grammar are not the most important factors when writing academic papers, essays, dissertations, reports, projects and so forth....
Ok....tutors looks mainly for your understanding of the course material. But he/she won't be at all impress if you use the apostrophe incorrectly or if you repeatedly making gross grammar mistakes.
That is why I think that, as a foreign student studying in English, this book has been a great help in improving and polishing my writing skills.
Top marks!!

I'm sorry, but it amused me how you praise the book yet your spelling and grammar are pretty poor.

Hey Jim - please re-read what you've written as there is a grammatical error!

To the comments below: As English isn't his mother tongue, I think he's done a good job with this review. There's always one or two who think they're the ones in charge of criticizing others.

You are right. There ARE always one or two. Fair play.
