E/K = contains exercises and a key.
Exploring Grammar in Writing — upper-intermediate and advanced (R. Hughes; Cambridge
University Press)
Like Grammar for Academic Writing, this book aims to develop your understanding of how genre,
context and purpose affect grammatical choices in writing. E/K
English Grammar in Use (R. Murphy; Cambridge University Press)
The best-selling book on British grammar. It presents grammatical rules (and exceptions) simply
and clearly, and provides plenty of sentence-level exercises. However, it provides rather limited
help for students needing to write academic assignments. E/K
Advanced Grammar in Use (M. Hewings; Cambridge University Press).
In the same series as Murphy’s book. More relevant to university-level writing. E/K
Academic Vocabulary in Use (M. McCarthy and F. O’Dell; Cambridge University Press)
A guide to the key academic vocabulary used in all fields. E/K
Grammar Troublespots (A. Raimes; Cambridge University Press)
Very practical guidance on points to notice when editing your own academic writing. E/K
How English Works (M. Swan and C. Walter; Oxford University Press)
Intended ‘to make grammar practice interesting’. As well as covering the usual areas, it comments
on differences between spoken and written grammar where necessary. Also includes a useful test
to show you which grammatical areas you need to concentrate on. E/K
Oxford Guide to English Grammar (J. Eastwood; Oxford University Press)
A very thorough grammar reference book with clear explanations (there is a good section on
articles and related points, for example), but no exercises. A companion volume, Oxford Practice
Grammar, by the same author, has exercises but less complete explanations.
Cambridge Grammar of English (R. Carter and M. McCarthy; Cambridge University Press)
‘The ultimate guide to English as it is really used’, according to the publishers. A large, very
comprehensive reference grammar, for both spoken and written usage, based on recent research.
