Essential Reference Books/pamphlets:
- A good dictionary: (Webster’s Collegiate is preferable, but others will suffice if you are unable to get Webster’s – though they are often better for British English, than American.)

- Dorothy Burton Skårdal, Rules for Writing English: A Practical Handbook for Students and Teachers of English in Norway (Available through Kompendia Utsalg at Akademika)
