Format: Paperback
Although it doesn't have the makeover of Rinvolucri's More Grammar Games et al this is the best Tefl book I've come across, and the one I miss most in the language school I am teaching in now. Like most of the Cambridge press there's an introduction, which is worth reading, and then the invaluable games with which to suddenly create interest in the otherwise lifeless grammar point.
If you're struggling to find something to ignite the imaginations of your students, or have avoided the present perfect, despairing of ever getting the rule across, or need something for conditionals (as in the sentence here), then buy Ur's book.

Format: Paperback
This book is packed with interesting, easy to follow and simple (yet effective) grammar based classroom activities. All the major grammar points (tenses, conditionals, modals, articles etc) are included with each containing a number of different exercises covering a range of different learning abilities. Most exercises contain illustrations of some description meaning you can knock out good quality activities quickly and at short notice.

The Cambridge Handbook series is consistently good in terms of being accessible, easy to use and affordable. This Grammar Practice Activities book is no exception and should be included on any serious EFL teachers bookshelf.

Format: Paperback
Use this book to bring a bit fun into dry grammar lessons. At first this book does not look promising, but the contents are brilliant. There are many ideas how to teach grammar items in a less dry manner. There is a photocopiable section and good indices. The indices help you find the right activity: by level, by name or by grammar item.
If you ever wondered how you could teach grammar items in a more interesting way – this is the book to get inspiration.

Penny Ur is a legend in the ELT industry and this book is packed with useful activities to help bring grammar alive. Yes it is a little outdated now (the black & white photos are circa.1988) but it is still a very useful tool for the English language classroom.

Format: Paperback
This book is a revelation and I cannot praise it highly enough. It is a bible of great activities, games and exercises for TEFL teachers, well arranged and nearly covers everything and most levels. Although it would still be excellent without the CDROM, this is what really does it for me. It is an excellent resource, in fact I am in the process of printing out and laminating everything on it for easy use, as I have already used everything so many times. It is all in colour, easy to print, and great pictures, ideas and graffics. In addition, if you have a laptop and interactive whiteboard like me, it is really great as you don't have to even bother printing some stuff, you can just put it up on screen. As I said though, even without this, it is still fantastic with really great quick plan exercises with minimum prep. Along with the 700 Classroom Activities, this is now always in my bag, and I am always consulting it before class, and before starting a new grammar point. Really great stuff, whether you're a new or experienced TEFL teacher, I would definately recommend these two books, they are a great combination.
