Format: Paperback
Alexander's "Longman English Grammar" is among the best of its type I have seen, though not without some drawbacks.

The coverage is exceptionally comprehensive, going over a large number of structures and forms that will keep most students going for a long time. The covers not only the main structures, but also some more specialised forms that students may need to be familiar with.

The explanations are generally easy to understand, though sometimes they get a little confusing. The examples provided are excellent and they often clear up any points of confusion that the explanations may have left the reader with.

Perhaps the biggest plus for this book is the fact that they include a section of exercises called "Context". Very few grammar practice books do this, prefering instead to have only sentence level practice. Alexander has provided an excellent opportunity to practice grammar in a wider context of language. The only pity is that he did not provide more like it, but some is better than none, and this alone makes the book worth getting.

Alexander's book is one of the best grammar practice books out there, and is an indispensible tool for the English student. If you can get one, I recommend doing so.

Good grammar references are hard to find, especially ones like this that are all-inclusive. I recommend this for ESL learners because it includes all the grammar they need to know along with many example sentences.
