Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students - Mignon Fogarty

Title: Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students

Genre: Nonfiction (Writing)

About the book: This guide covers different aspects of writing. It is geared towards high schol and university students.

First impressions: I’ve been a fan of Mignon Fogarty, better known as Grammar Girl, for many years now. I picked up this book when I was still in school, but I never got around to reading it cover to cover until now when I`m no longer a student.

Content: The book has chapters on parts of speech, sentences, puncutation, grammar rules, and writing style/advice. There’s also a glossary, bibliography, index, as well as other sections. I especially liked the tips and pop quizzes scattered throughout.

Quote:

“Writers—professional writers—get writer’s block at different points in their lives.”

Writing: Even when explanining complicated rules, Fogarty is concise and to the point. She writes in a way that’s clear and easy to understand.

Final thoughts: I enjoyed reading the entire guide from beginning to end. It’s also a useful resource to flip through and skim certain sections. I highly recommend Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students to anyone who wants to learn more about grammar and improve as a writer.
