    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.

    Not having answers for the excercises

    This book is good for gaining the knowledge of grammar, but the answers for most of the exercises are not available in this book. It would have been an excellent book if the answer as well available so that we could have confirmed what we learned and applied in the exercise is correct. Certainly it is very good for composition.

    Good book, great service

    I bought this for my 7th std son. This was the one that we used during our schooling.
    It's a very useful book for school kids and it's easy for us to use and explain to kids.
    Delivery was on the next day of the order, and I got a hard cover one (that was few rupees cheaper than paperback, for some reason) and I got the latest version.
