I bought this book because I intended to sit the CPE. The title of the book is so promising. However, the content is not that helpful. The style of presentation is similar to that of English Vocabulary in Use. To sum up, it is much better to buy any of the English vocabulary in Use series it discusses the usage of certain words in more detail and there are plenty of exercises.

Format: Paperback
It is a very very short analysis of common mistakes at CPE: few example given in a banal way.
Just a couple of pounds you say? don't waste them..

This book is more a booklet and gives only a very brief overview of common mistakes at CPE, which should already have been dealt with at CAE level.

Very useful for the test. Not to the point as other publications (like "Grammar for CAE and Proficiency") but it is helpful anyway. At some stages of English you tend to think you're not commiting mistakes any more, but this book will proove you wrong!

This book is quite useful as it contains lots of information on common mistakes to avoid. Throughout the book, the reader encounters useful examples and tests to try their knowledge on grammar.

It is worth the price.
