I'm a student who has just completed their IGCSE's and wanted to know what books I should read to give me a comprehensive knowledge of the English language and achieve a good grade in my A-level exams.

For Child Language Acquisition (not until Y13 on my course), read Making Sense:The Glamorous Story of English Grammar by David Crystal. He also has other books about the history of English Language and also on linguistics, including one called The English Language.

*Disclaimer - I didn't read the second book and I read about halfway through the first book. I wish I did though.*

The exam board should have a recommended reading list for the course on their exam specification page.
