    Grammar mistake

    "Grammar" is a noun.
    The adjective is "grammatical", so we have "grammatical mistake".
    I have also heard of "grammar mistake". I think it is correct, just need to confirm.

    Re: Grammar mistake

    Should 'grammar books' always be said instead of 'grammatical books'?

    Re: Grammar mistake

    A grammatical book uses good grammar in the prose.
    A grammar book is on the topic of grammar.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
