  • Key grammatical terms necessary for understanding rules
  • Citations to grammatical and legal sources
  • Style tips

This version of the book is paired with West Academic’s Interactive Grammar and Usage Assessment, an online self-assessment tool. Students can work at their own pace in the cleanly designed digital format. The questions are broken into specific categories, so users can focus on particular topics where improvement might be needed. Right answers include an explanation of why an answer is correct. More importantly, the detailed explanations accompanying wrong answers provide a real opportunity for learning. The sophisticated, yet simple, user-interface provides students with many useful options:
  • Tracking progress through questions covering a specific subtopic
  • Viewing scores after completing a quiz
  • Marking specific questions for further review
  • Retaking a quiz any number of times
