I bought this after reading Stephen King's book on writing, in which he said this is the book he used in public school. I'm glad it's in my library. Its useful, well indexed and handy to have if you have any questions about grammar, spelling, syntax, etc.
A must for anyone who cares about languages. Thanks, Stephen.

I am still using my copy (1951/1957 edition), and I have long recommend it to other teachers who want something to beef up their courseware. Exercises are straighforward and progressive and right in the book itself. The series are progressive, year to next year. The red and black text in my edition was unusual in ca. 1950-60, but the contrasting colors have always helped point me quickly to what I'm looking for. In my experience, unsurpassed were the index and treatment of diagramming. Having worked through the book in a senior composition and grammar class taught by a Latin teacher, I was fully equipped for the next step--composition classes at the University of Michigan, and graduate courses in Greek, Hebrew, French, German, and others later.

This is the only english grammar and composition book you'll ever need. Every student should have this in their library as the "go to book", because some of the newer books being used today do not cover the rules of grammar and composition well or they re-invent the standards and rules altogether. I have seen this book on the shelves of many educators(both high school and college)as well, so that definitely speaks to the quality of this book. I was pleased that this older book was available for purchase. I bought one for each of my children to use in high school and to take with them to college and beyond...I highly recommend this book!

The whole series by Warriner is fantastic. I have been using it to teach my two children (we educate them at home). I have learned so much along with them. The book is so clear, and has so many examples and exercises that there is no way you won't learn.

My daughter, 11, here by my side, is telling me to add that she even likes it.

That's saying a lot, as grammar is not the most interesting subject.

Warriner's grammar IS the one, the ONLY text needed to learn or review grammar. The text presentation in simple black, white, and red keeps things simple with regard to importance, etc. Want to learn grammar?? Go to Warriner's!

With children and adults getting less than proper English training and teaching, this book provides the user a solid foundation for the English language. Some complaints are there are not enough lessons or problems to work, thus the reasons for a workbook..... Reading, writing, and grammar are critical for people and this book is well worth the low cost!

I had this from high school and somebody borrowed it and never returned it.

Twenty-five years later it still left an impression and was worth replacing.

This is an excellent text for anybody's reference library.

More in-depth and straight-forward than its contemporary analogues, this is an excellent grammar reference. I would recommend it to anyone; it's great as a textbook and as a simple reference. I'm using it to pass vocational English tests and quickly improve my editing skills. The lack of solutions to the exercises is the only aspect of this book with which I'm dissatisfied. The exercises are useful anyhow. I haven't used the sections on composition or entrance exams, so I cannot comment on them.

It is an old book, so it isn't printed with a lot of color or key terms set apart in fancy boxes. The first five parts at least seem best studied in sequence, as they build up from the parts of speech to writing documents.

This book covers grammar beyond the basic level, but when I needed even more in-depth information (on fine points of the use of brackets and hyphens), I was able to find it in the Chicago Manual of Style.
