This starts with the basics such as "what is a sentence?" and goes into using mechanics and punctuation correctly.

The Appendices are *fantastic* and include helpful things such as homophones, misused homophones, frequently misspelled words, and frequently misused word pairs.

I might end up purchasing a copy of this for my personal reference library.
