Can we "study something from a book" rather than " in a book" ?
We generally say "I read the story in a book".
We don't say "I read the story from a book."
So can we say "I studied grammar from this book" ?

Hi,

Can we "study something from a book" rather than " in a book" ?

We generally say "I read the story in a book".

We don't say "I read the story from a book." True, although I wouldn't call it wrong.

So can we say "I studied grammar from this book" ? Yes. It's just a bit uncommon.

I'd more naturally say 'I learned grammar from this book'.

I see no problem with it. The understanding is that you "take" it from the book and then study it.

I am studying this material.

Where did you get it?

From a book.

It works in other senses as well:

Would you please read this paragraph from chapter one?

I am reading aloud from the book.

Haven't you memorized the material?

No, I'm still studying from the book. (I'm using the book as a reference.)

I'm studying something [which is] from a book.
