The Little Gold Grammar Book
THE LITTLE GOLD GRAMMAR BOOK is based on a simple but powerful observation: Individuals who develop outstanding grammar skills do so primarily by mastering a limited number of the most important grammar rules, which they use over and over again. What are these recurring rules? The answer to this question is the basis of this book. In addition to covering the basics of grammar, diction, and idioms, this book contains a 100-question grammar quiz, a collection of 50-plus word pairings (diction), a compilation of 200 idioms, and 30 multiple-choice problems to integrate key concepts. Special sections cover editing tips and punctuation, American English versus British English, and traditional writing versus digital writing.
The Little Green Math Book
The Little Green Math Book reads like a collection of math recipes to help us blend problems, principles, and approaches in creating our own lineup of splendid math cuisine. The book's four chapters include: (1) Basic Numeracy Ingredients, (2) Wonderful Math Recipes, (3) Favorite Numeracy Dishes, and (4) Special Math Garnishments. Along with 30 of the most fundamental, recurring math principles and rules, you’ll find a three-tier system to rate the difficulty level of all problems – one chili (“mild”), two chilies (“hot”), and three chilies (“very hot”).
Fine-tune your numerical mindset with a quantitative review that serves as a refresher course and as a tool for perceiving math in a new way. Whether you’re a high school or college student, test-prep candidate, or working professional, this book’s wealth of explanations and insights makes it a perfect learning companion.
