Grammar Reference Books
Here are some grammar reference books for those interested in further/self-study.
I suggest you look through any you might be interested in before you buy to make sure they contain useful information for you personally, and make sure there is a key to the exercises!
'English Grammar Practice for Italian students' by Michael Vince (who is a prolific writer of grammar ref books) and Lelio Pallini, published by Macmillan Heinemann. Gramatically it starts at the very beginning and goes up to B2 level. It's nice for Italian students, as the name suggests, as gives explanations/examples/translations/comparisons
