    I found an interesting blog article that takes Russian textbooks to task for being poorly written. The author includes some excerpts from the book, and I'm having trouble figuring out what exactly is wrong with this one (in bold): "Название первого вступления (на стр. 3): «Как работать по учебнику». То есть уродовать русский язык авторы начинают сразу."

    What would be the proper way to write that?

    What about: Как работать с учебником as used in this site.

    I don't see anything terrible with работать по учебнику. Grammatically it's correct, just more often we say работать с учебником and учиться по учебнику, so here they just contaminated these two stable set phrases, attaching the sense "to study" to the word работать.
