went through the sticky threads and saw that Doing Grammar, Kaplan Verbal Foundations and the GMAT Club Grammar are all heavily mentioned.

I basically need to learn grammar from the ground up and was wondering which one of the three above you guys suggest.

Thanks!

Doing Grammer is quite popular, so that's probably the best option for someone who wants to start with the basics. If you're still having some trouble, consult GMATClub's guide. The two sources just mentioned are the best available for prospective GMAT test takers. Also, read as much GMAT Fiction as possible.

Once you're ready to move on, purchase Manhattan's SC guide and Powerscore CR Bible. These are fantastic books for the verbal section. You might have to read them more than once in order to fully absorb the material, though.

I would not recommend starting with Doing Grammar if you are not very confident with Grammar. I am going through this now and will post a detailed review about this in a few weeks.

I would recommend the following:

1.Either Wren & Martin or any other high school book - if you need more help with your basics
or
1. You can use the GMAT club grammar book (starts with more basics than KVF but could have a few things additional and is not as is not as comprehensive KVF
2. Kaplan verbal foundations (KVF)
3. Doing Grammar - (optional)
4. Aristotle SC grail & MGMAT SC

I dont believe that Doing Grammar is absolutely required unless you have plenty of time in hand(if you do, lucky you !!) and would not start with it for sure - who ever said is a good starting point is not at a beginning level.
Good luck.

I would side with roshpat. I have actually returned Doing Grammar - it was very dense for my tastes but since we have our own grammar book, I don't want to seem biased so I am staying on the sidelines. :)

Thanks for all the replies! I need to start from scratch so I'll start with KVF and then grab Doing Grammar if I feel necessary. As always, thanks for your thoughts.
