Overview

The words people use say a lot about them...but the way they put them together says even more. Grammar makes an immediate — and lasting — impression on friends, co-workers, and teachers.

Unfortunately, learning the nuts and bolts of English usage has always been boring. That's why the folks at The Princeton Review created Grammar Smart, a witty, irreverent, even entertaining approach to grammar that will help listeners write and speak with clarity and confidence. Grammar Smart will teach students how to choose between that and which, decide when to use like instead of as, and know for sure if this is between you and I or between you and me.

Two 60-minute CDs include:

• 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!
