5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must 11 May 2009
By Amanda
Format:Paperback
For many people, finding a decent grammar book can be a bit of a hard job. Many of them are either too confusing and with far too much jargon, and others aren't detailed enough. "Accion gramatica" provides a grammar text midway between the two.

The contents of the book are very well organised and range from the simple things like nouns to the more complicated, such as the various subjunctives. Each grammatical point is thoroughly (yet not overwhelmingly) explained for the reader, along with examples and then exercises at the end of each chapter to consolidate your knowledge. There is even a section at the beginning explaining the meanings of various grammatical terminology (such as subject, adverb, passive, etc) and also sections on Spanish spelling and accentuation (which not all grammar books have).

On the whole, this book really is an essential grammar guide for any Spanish student. I bought it when I was studying at GCSE level, and it still served me well through my A Level. I would also recommend it for anyone studying Spanish in higher education. It is, without doubt, the best Spanish grammar book on the market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - but not too advanced 4 Feb 2010
By AP
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent, and probably the best of its level on the market; certainly better than its direct competitors here on sale at Amazon. It covers every chapter topic you would expect, and it is both clear and precise.

However, it is debatable how "advanced" it is. It is squarely aimed at the upper GCSE to A-level market, and will certainly get you through your exams. However, I would say it contains only the minimum one needs to know when living and working in a Spanish-speaking country. I was hoping to find something that was a cut-down version of the unbeatable but sometimes overwhelming "A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish" (Butt & Benjamin), containing all the goodness but with fewer of the obscure exceptions and Latin-American variants so that it wouldn't take an entire hour to read one chapter only to immediately forget 80% of it. Sadly, I now think that such a thing doesn't exist.

If you're not yet an experienced language-learner, this book is ideal. Otherwise, when you need to get right to the heart of the language, go with B&B - but prepare a stiff drink ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Accion Gramatica 26 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
This has been really useful, I'm enjoying using it. While it deals with some complex issues, such as the very many different uses of the subjunctive, it breaks things down into easy chunks. This means that you can complete an exercise in a half-hour, which if you are otherwise busy is helpful. Thoroughly recommended, I guess it would be about A-level standard, although I'm using it as self-study independent of the UK examination system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for A-Level! 4 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is an extremely worthwhile buy for anybody studying Spanish A-Level (or at an equivalent level). It is clear, to the point and well laid out - something which is certainly missing from many other grammar books. I found all explanations concise and the exercises after each chapter are thorough and relevant. The order of the chapters is also extremely logical, so working through them gives a real sense of progression. An excellent buy - highly recommended.
