Hi!
There is a lot of books on English grammar in the web. Could you give me advice what is the best one for an advance learner? I need mainly a theoretical book on English grammar but I can't choose a right one. Though a book on usage would help me also. What to choose?

Have you narrowed your choices down to a few?
Do you want a reference book or a text book?

Do you have a limit on costs, or any other requirements (such as a student workbook and answer key)?
Hehe, sorry for my poor FrenchEmotion: wink
Here is a list of downloadable books(I hope you don't mind that copyright is broken there and you won't tell the policeEmotion: wink). I need a reference book with examples of usige, a sort of discriptive grammar.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
There are 4 books which I strongly recommend to any English student. Following are their names, authors as well as their costs in Indian Rupees (INR).

1. High School English Grammar & Composition by P. C. Wren & H. Martin (Rs. 160)

2. A Final Course in English Grammar & Composition by P. C. Wren & H. Martin (Rs. 120)

3. School Essays & Letters by H. Martin (Rs. 90)

4. Write-Well Book of Essays, Letters & Stories by Dev Raj Aggarwal (Rs. 170)

In all, you'll have to spend Rs. 540; but I guarantee the books are worth the price!
