Carin Murphy on
Great resource with easy to understand explanations of all grammar points without getting bogged down in detail. Great companion to Murphy's Essential Grammar in Use which provides explanations on the left hand page and exercises on the right. Have been using these both for over 12 years as a TESOL Trainer and an ESL teacher and have not found anything better.
