As an EFL teacher this is a book that finally compliments the 'Grammar in Use' series. A book not only useful to advanced students but to EFL / ESL teachers alike. The content and style remains the same as Raymond Murphey's books in the series, but introduces and practises a higher level of grammar that students using this book have found challenging and has taught them the complexities of the language at higher levels.I strongly recommend to students and teachers to buy this book as it is an invaluable purchase for EFL/ESL classes and self help to advanced students. Your collection should not be without this book.
This is a following book (after English Grammar in Use)for whoever wants to learn more detailed advanced English Grammar. It is very detailed. I liked it because it has got plain clear English to explain even more difficult topics for anyone. It is for self-study with lots of exercises. I suggest buy with keyed to exercises one. I also suggest with this book Advanced Language Practice ISBN: 0-5-435-241-249 and Longman Advanced Grammar ISBN: 0-582-079-780 if you are dedicated and desire learning English to proficiency.
When I bought this item I thought it was a book with a CD-rom. I felt quite stupid, but reviews talk about the book so I misunderstood the information. When the parcel arrived I realised I had purchased the CD ONLY, which is just a few exercises, and I think it is overpriced. On the other hand, it is easier to practise with the CD when you don't feel like reading and understanding the theory in the book, sometimes a bit too much ;)
