Publisher's Summary

The words you use say a lot about you...but the way you put them together says even more. Your grammar makes an immediate - and lasting - impression on your boss, your co-workers, your teachers, and even your friends.So don't make the mistake of thinking that grammar is too complicated or boring for anyone but linguists and nerds. We all use grammar, but many of us could use it better. We've created Grammar Smart, a witty, irreverent, and entertaining approach to grammar to help you write and speak with clarity and confidence. Grammar Smart will teach you how to choose between "that" and "which," decide when to use "like" instead of "as," and know for sure if it's "between you and I" or "between you and me."This program includes:

Funny examples and stories to illustrate correct usage
Brief, interactive question-and-answer reviews
The basic parts of speech - nouns, verbs, and adjectives
Pronoun-verb agreement, parallel construction, the dreaded misplaced modifiers, and dangling participles - all without pain!

Grating at times but useful

I found this to be painful to listen to, but if you can make it past the unfunny banter, I think you will improve and become more confident with grammar. I purchased this as part of my GMAT prep and feel like this program helped a great deal. It's pretty basic stuff that I feel like I learned in school but had since forgotten. Some of you smarties might not find it useful. Great for those of us who went to public schools! :)

Will need your full attention

The content of this book is good. I listened to this book while driving back and forth between work and home. It turned out to be a hassle listening to this, as I found myself rewinding very often. It needs all your attention. I'd recommend listening to this while NOT driving.

One thing I'd really like to see in this book is, more gap between sentences - pausing a couple of seconds between complex sentences will let me digest the concept better.

Over all I think this book turned out to be an useful one and I will be listen to it one more time to make sure that I remember everything.
