I am quoting a statement I read on a great vocabulary book:

"ALL DESK DICTIONARIES ARE GOOD. THE ONLY BAD ONE IS THE ONE THAT ISN'T USED "

I hope you got my point.
All grammar books are good. the point is how you use it wisely. ... it also depends on your taste. So none would answer your that question regarding "which one"

I find this query too general.

ermm join some library/ club or some association where English speaking is compulsory... that might help.
Speak with yourself. Maintain a diary. write everyday.

Watch more TV (news / serials) channels (*and not Hollywood movies since they are more stuffed with action than dialogues. )

[ I hope you are not asking members here to spot the grammatical errors on your post. ]

Thank you for your reply and suggestions.

I am not asking anyone to help spot grammatical errors. if anyone has so much free time he is most welcome to do do 8) .

my sole purpose to write last post was to ask suggestions by looking at my other posts, from their one can have idea about my english writing skills.

from "better" i mean which one is easy to start with and explains ideas at almost beginners level.

Dont bother about my last line I was just kidding in fact I don't encourage other members too to do (spotting errors in others posts) so. Oh! I forgot to add a smiley there... sorry

Anyway back to the topic:

If you have all three book ready : why dont you try each one... check first few pages of each book and compare.
I again say it varies with person to person. Some people like PR that dosent some people like ManhattanGMAT...

I think Eric has posted a better reply on your log...

I can assure you if you study with the Manahattan Grammar book
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0974806951?ie=UTF8&tag=beatthegmat-your SC skills will improve significantly. They did for me to the point I am now better in the verbal section (used to be the oppositive)

As far as RC I read a lot of articles from newspapers with a good reputtaion such as New York Times, try to pick the difficult ones. http://www.nytimes.com/

For CR I practiced with diffirent guides and also with resources form this community. Refer to the CR section.

Hope it helps
