If you were to do just one more shot of grammar in high school for review, and to make sure everything was covered, what would you use?

I was pretty happy with Abeka's 11th grade grammar offerings.  It used a Handbook of Grammar and Composition and a Workbook.  I picked and chose what we went over, but it was good and worthwhile.

I'd double-duty it and use Erica Metzler's ACT English book (or a corresponding SAT Metzler book). She covers it in context plus you get test prep.

I'll check it out.

I would get one of the Easy Grammar Ultimate books and go through that. I tried that this year with my 9th grader, actually, and it ended up being that he really didn't need it, but I did like the book.

Just a heads-up that these have rule reminders in them, but they are not instructional. They are more application-based. We use them too, and I do like them, but if you are looking for instruction, they will probably only partially fit the bill.

If you want instruction and targeted exercises by topic, maybe one of the Warriner's grammar books? It's a traditional textbook, but it's thorough. You can buy older editions online for just a few bucks. I don't know as much about the setup of the newer books and computer-based options available from Holt/Rainbow Resource, but they do sell some version of Warriner's as well.

I'm using "Grammar for the Well-Trained Child" by SWB with DD this year.  I highly recommend it, very thorough!

I like Robin Finley's Analytical Grammar.

We've tried that.  I think I tried it too young (for mine, anyway).  It was too much marking abbreviations for them.  (but thanks for the suggestion)
