    An excellent reference and learning tool.

    I have this in both Kindle and print format and find it to be extremely useful. For me both versions serve slightly different purposes: the print version lives on my desk, and is particularly useful while editing, while the Kindle version is useful for the study of grammar and punctuation.In the both versions Quick Study Academic have managed to summarize entire books on English grammar and punctuation in six well thought out and presented pages. In the print version each section is color coded making it easy to locate exactly what you are looking for quickly and easily; in addition the document is laminated for sturdiness (clearly Quick Study intended it to get a lot of use). By comparison the Kindle version does not have the color coding, but it makes use of an active contents page which allows for quick navigation.Sections include:Words: Greek & Latin roots, prefixes, suffixes, synonyms, antonyms, adopted words and multiple-meaning words are all covered in this section. While I do feel that more depth could have been gone into, especially concerning the French and Norse aspects of the English language, in general this section is excellent and given how condensed it is it covers the basics pretty well.Parts of Speech: Nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, articles and interjections are all covered here. This section breaks each type of word down, giving a brief explanation of what each is, along with the sub-groupings. Nouns, for example, are also broken down into common nouns, proper nouns, collective nouns, countable nouns and uncountable nouns (each with an excellent and simple explanation).Parts of a Sentence: Subject and predicate are both covered here. The subject section covering extra detail such as how pronouns, complements, gerunds, noun clauses, and infinitives fit in. The Predicate section is equally as detailed.Sentence Types and Forms: Here the different types of sentences (declarative, imperative, interrogative and exclamatory) are covered along with simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentence structure.Dependent Clauses: This covers noun clauses, adjective clauses and adverbial clauses all with useful examples.Sentence Structure and Clarity: A brief section on common errors which includes fragments, comma splices and fused sentences along with explanations on how to fix these problems.Agreement: This large section covers verb tense, person and number, voice, and mood for verbs, and case reference and antecedents for pronouns.Misplaced and Dangling Modifiers: Here an explanation of modifiers is given along with information on how to use them properly.Sentence Flow and Phrasing: This section covers parallelism, transition, word choice and action verbs, each with multiple subsections which give further information.Punctuation: This is the biggest section in the entire document covering a page and a half. In this section punctuation is covered in detail; going through each punctuation mark explanations are given on how to use them, along with multiple examples.Mechanics: This covers the correct use of abbreviations, capitalization, italics, numbers and paragraphing. It also has tips to improve your spelling.All up this short document is an excellent tool both for reference and learning and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good, concise guide to this subject. If you are studying this subject, or working in an environment where you need a quick reference, and you have one of these (especially the printed version), you may well find that your other grammar and punctuation books spend most of their time on the bookshelf while this document spends most of its time on your desk.

    An excellent basic guide to English Grammar and Punctuation. It also serves as a great way to review the topic.

    I have a large collection of these fantastic “Quick Study Academic” outline series and find them interesting and highly informative. I just finished reading this six page plastic laminated (English Grammar & Punctuation by Shelly Evans-Marshall) Academic outline and found it to be a great review of the topic. This overview covers English grammar and punctuation including the use of words, phrases, clauses, and sentences to express clear and complete thoughts.I was pleasantly surprised on how much detail has been put into these six pages. Some of the material includes the basic roots of some words, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, subject, predicate, dependent clauses, sentence structure & clarity, sentence flow & phrasing. This outline has essential information for anyone who desires a basic review of English grammar. Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Shotokan Karate: Combat karate for the street)

    Eh not what I hoped

    It's ok. It's much too detailed to be a "cheat sheet", especially for my English 101. It's as detailed as many books. Doesn't include simple things like the forms of be or a list of helping verbs or what the conjunctions are. It explains the concepts of them. I also don't see the 4 sentence types. I might return it.
