    David Crystal. I also saw a GCSE grammar book in WH Smith the other day. Can't remember what it was called - something like Grammar for GCSE English...

    David Crystal anything is a good shout. The man is a genius. He can be a bit too detailed at times mind.

    I used (and still do) English Words and Sentences: An Introduction. It's clear and straightforward to use. The book is big and font size is big. You don't need to squint or anything and it's just simple which is what you need.

    Sara Thorne's books were good-quite advanced though.

    For students I would recommend the CPG grammar/SPG books. We bought one for our weaker students last year.
