    from books/through books

    Is it correct to say: I've learnt all these structures through books on English grammar/from books on English grammar?
    Thanks in advanced.

    Re: from books/through books

    I prefer 'from', but 'through' is also acceptable. 'From' is also more common, at least in AmE.

    Re: from books/through books

    I think "from" refers to the source of information, whereas "through" refers to the means (how) of getting the information.
