grammar girl logoIf you haven't yet listened to one of Grammar Girl's audio podcasts, give these lessons a try! Her grammar lessons are fun and relevant, often including interesting references to stuff happening in our culture today. Each lesson also includes a transcript, and audio files are available for download, so you can listen to them on your iPod.

Grammar Guide logoHelpful site, particularly on tricky situations with quotation marks.  The text format is a bit intimidating (lots of words without headings), but don't avoid reading the text because of the format; you'll miss out on some useful information.
