High School English Grammar & Composition Revised Edition (English) 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.204

High School English Grammar & Composition is a book that provides the readers with insights into several key aspects of English grammar.

Summary Of The Book

High School English Grammar & Composition is one of the most renowned reference guides to learn English Grammar in India. This is a part of the series of books by Wren and Martin, and it provides a comprehensive study of grammar. First published in 1935, this grammar book is now being used extensively in numerous schools across Pakistan, India, and Burma.

This book has been divided into two sections, containing 84 chapters in total. The first part is about Grammar and the second part is about Composition. Some chapters include Synthesis of Sentences, Conjunctions, Direct and Indirect Speech, Comparison of Adverbs, and The Noun: Kinds of Nouns. The content of this book has been greatly influenced by The Manual of English Grammar and Composition authored by J. C. Nestfield.

Through the course of this book, the authors have dealt with the very basics of grammar such as forming sentences, identifying subject and predicate, verbs, using adjectives as nouns, relative pronouns, and much more. The readers are also provided with insights into writing an essay, autobiographies, letters, and stories. High School English Grammar & Composition contains numerous exercises on grammar and composition that will help the readers test themselves from every angle.

go for raymond murphy's books

wren and martin was the first book on grammar that i purchased in my school days... after finishing my school i purchased murphy's books on grammar(available here in the price range of rs.99-301) and i find these books extremely helpful as compared to this particular book....the reason for the success of this book is the word of mouth publicity (mostly done by people who hardly know a thing or two of english)..the content of this book lacks quality....i strongly recommend raymond murphy's books for better understanding of english grammar.

If you take a closer look on the books Front Wrapper , you Can See the Indian Author Name in Yellow Color... Revised By N.D.V.PRASADA RAO..

In the Examples And Exercises it contains Many Indian names..
I wonder only the names are changed by the Indian Author or the original books contents are modified in the name of Revision..

Wren And Martin itself are a great series of books and it doesn't need Revision or any makeover by any author...(Just My Opinion)

I have read the the Wren And Martin series during 19993-94,but don't remember the exact contents and the Edition now...

Can anyone confirm this?

Will look forward to get the original text if possible...

A Great Combination of the Book and it's Key

Ordered it along with the "Key To Wren & Martin's High School English Grammar & Composition" and a timely delivery was done by flipkart. It is a very popular book in students community and is really very useful for all of us. I've purchased it specially for my Children to enhance their English Language skills grammatically and also to revise and test my own english language skills once again after passing my MA in English Literature way back in 1999. This book along with it's key is a great combination one can really have. Just go for it without any second thoughts.

Awesome book with stupid printing

This is an wonderful book with very good example.
Each example is taught by separating the particular world like "noun" or "verb" in Italics !!

But it is very hard to differentiate normal fonts from Italics, every word fonts look alike to me!! so as a matter of fact nothing is understandable :(
Think about it before you buy this book...

And thanks to Flipkart... AS-USUAL :)

School Revisited.......

This authoritative book on English Grammar and Composition took me back to my school days, when Wren and Martin along with Nesfield, were considered to be the last words on English grammar. However, this upgraded edition has been revised by Dr. N.D.V.Prasada Rao and contains Indian names, making it suitable for the Indian students. But for those of us seeped in nostalgia, the original book was perhaps more comprehensive, but then you have to adapt to the changing times. Overall, this is a book which the learners of the English language should possess!

Good book for Competetive exams like Bank PO and SSC

I have gone through the book and found it more useful in understanding grammar right from the basics. Most of the English Comprehension questions in the exams like SBI, IBPS and SSC will be based on subject and verb agreement, etc which are explained in a very simple and easy language as it is i...
