After 20 years of teaching EFL I have to say, this is probably the best grammar book for intermediate students. Clear, concise, yet comprehensive, it doesn't leave anything to chance, giving and explaining alternative answers - and you can be completely confident that you're teaching the 'correct' grammar - which sadly isn't so for all grammar books.

I've just bought the new edition with CD-Rom of the famous grammar book I used to study when I was a university student and I am really impressed about it.
The book has 145 units, on the left pages you have the grammar explanations with useful coloured drawings and on the right pages a series of exercises. The answers are given at the end of the book.
The CD-Rom can be installed onto your computer or just be run without installing the files onto your hard disk, but in both cases the CD-Rom must be in the drive.
The homepage is user-friendly indeed. In the middle you have the exercises menu and around it the function icons. What surprised me a lot was the presence of audiofiles. Once you have completed an exercise, you can even listen to the sentences by clicking on the loudspeaker icon and even record your own voice for comparison.
By holding down CTRL and left-clicking the mouse button on a word, the glossary opens and gives you the explanation of the word you don't know, and if you are connected to the Internet, you can have a look at the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary online, a dictionary with CD-Rom which I recommend to buy.
You can print all the exercises with or without the answers, have your scores memorized, receive a feedback for each mistake with useful notes on which unit of the grammar book to revise, and you know what? Both teachers and students can create their own tests by a simple click of the mouse! Just click on "Tests" and choose the language areas you like - the software will pick up the sentences for you from the database, after that you are asked to enter the number of questions for your test, from 1 till 25. The topics are those of the main menu, i.e.

I bought this book with the hope to improve my grammar after reading the reviews here. Perhaps others may have found this book extremely useful, however I personally have not found it beneficial. The other day I wanted to find out about the first conditonal and found that it only has 2 lines on it, which does not make it any clearer.
It definitely has a lot of work sheets to practice the tenses, but not enough explanation for my liking. Perhaps I have misunderstood the the aim of the book, but I was looking to purchase a book to improve my grammar knowledge and not just do gap-fill exercises.

I just wanted to let others out there know in case they experience the same problems.

The intermediate Murphy book is the book to buy if you're an English teacher. It is well laid out and the grammar rules are explained simply with good examples. One word of caution the exercises are not really designed for the classroom. This grammar book has saved me on countless occasions and most of my colleagues who own this book and will say the same thing.

Format: Paperback
As a long-time student of English, I have spent quite a lot of money on English books, and I think I can make an accurate assesment.

I'll quickly get to the point, this book is a must-buy, everybody should have a copy on their shelf. I could try to use my whole english vocabulary to praise Murphy's book: clear, user-friendly, accurate, uncluttered, easy to understand, magnificent... and I would never get close enough to describe how good I think this book is.

"English Grammar in Use" is a Bible of English, I have always looked it over whenever a doubt came up. It's the perfect book to own and check from time to time, (fortunately, I need to check less and less). In my humble opinion, the strongest point of the book is the fact that the english grammar on display is the one actually used most often among native speakers, whlist more advanced grammar books focus on academic or complex forms of english, the english in "grammar in use" is plain and utterly useful for your day-to-day.

I will never change my mind about this book but I want to make a warning, though. The book has a weakness: the exercises. Don't get me wrong, they are good in order to achieve a general overview, but if you want to take an exam (such as First Cerftificate) then you need another book containing more demanding exercises, as well as specific ones to train skills for listening, writing, reading and speaking. Of course, this does not make the book less useful, but such an important issue must be pointed out.

To round off, I strongly recommend purchasing this book despite its small weakness.
