Big Dog’s Grammar

Monday, August 11th, 2008 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Big Dog’s Grammar

I’ve been hunting for useful Web sites that will help me be successful in college this fall. And lucky for all of you, one of those is this grammar Web site!

Not only does it give you the bare bones of grammar you need to be successful, but it also includes self-tests you can take to test your grasp of the concepts, as well as, an MLA Quick Guide.

You’ll find navigation on the menu to the right of the Big Dog logo. It’s broken down into these categories:

Subjects, Verbs, Prepositions, Fragments, Comma-Splices Fused Sentences, Joiners, Agreement (both Subject Verb and Pronoun Antecedent), Dangling Modifiers, Misplaced Modifiers, Parallel Structure, Reference, Pronouns, Consistency and Active/Passive Constructions.

That’s quite a bit to cover, so it’s great it’s broken down so much. What I love the most is this site breaks grammar down into layman’s terms so that it’s easily understood. It leads you through the thought process of how it works and it leaves you with a self-test to prove you have the hang of it!

The self-tests are an important part of this Web site, because they let you know if you really grasped the content you studied. How do they work? Well, you start by following the instructions for each test, you type your answers in the blank text field and then click on the Submit button. The site grades your test to let you know if you’re right or wrong. If you’re right, it pops up with Correct. If you’re wrong, it pops up with Incorrect, but it tells you what you may have done wrong. (For example, some questions have more than one answer that must be submitted in a certain way, such as men, women rather than men women).

MLA Quick Guide – This is a must have for any college student. When you write papers for school, they usually have to be in the MLA format. This section guides you through how to do that and what is expected of you when you use the format.

I have bookmarked this site, sent it to all of my friends in school and I’m looking forward to using it throughout the school year. I hope you can get some good use out of it as well!
