Nelson - Known for clear explanations, a multitude of opportunities for practice, and a strong instructor support package, The Bare Essentials has, for over 25 years, been the preferred choice for students and instructors who need coverage of grammar and sentence- and paragraph-writing skills. For the next edition, we are moving to a more flexible format that will provide a number of options for teaching and learning. The foundational pieces—grammar rules and essentials of English writing skills—will be provided in the main core-concepts book, and the exercises will be available in a separate workbook.
