Nuts & Bolts: Writing Resources

Here are some of my favorite - free! - resources for grammar, punctuation and research documentation help.

Purdue Online Writing Lab
This is my favorite site for APA/MLA guides. 

A Writer’s Reference (Diana Hacker)
The online resources are great and include quizzes with exercises in grammar, punctuation and more. The explanations for correct and wrong answers are thorough and clear. (If asked to log in, simply click “cancel” in order to use the site.) 

“Grammar Girl” explains some challenging grammar aspects in clear, friendly language. Googling “grammar girl” and, say, “semi-colons,” is the easiest way I’ve found to search the  site.

What else would you add?
