I recently bought this book for a client of mine who is looking to take the CAE this year. I didn't have a copy myself so I ordered two, and when it arrived it reminded me that I'd used it a lot when I used to work in schools and language colleges.

A week or so later I bought it for another client of mine who works as a senior executive in a large multinational, because I had been stuck on where we could go next with his grammar. He has no intention of taking the exam. When I gave it to him he told me that he already had a copy in his home country, but was quite happy to have another copy because he had once been told by an English teacher that there "are only two grammar books you need to learn English. The first is English Grammar in Use, and the second, if you are serious a learning to use English at a higher level, is Grammar and Vocabulary for CAE and CPE."

Personally, I don't think English Grammar in Use (English Grammar In Use with Answers and CD ROM: A Self-study Reference and Practice Book for Intermediate Students of English) is as good as everyone thinks, but this book certainly is. Yes, it's excellent for those taking the respective exams, but it is just as good for those who just what to know, understand and use more complex English.

Let me see if I can explain why. Most books that deal with Grammar and Vocabulary are not, they are published separately. There are some, like the very good 'Language Practice' series by Michael Vince (Advanced Language Practice: With Key,

The title says it all. As a student of English I have spent a pound or two on books and have therefore the perspective necessary to assess the book's quality. As a learning book it is near flawless and presents the subject in minute detail, including the most common exempts from the rule. It is the workbook content, however, that serves no profitable purpose.

It stresses the need to know much overused cliches and allows one so much freedom in answering and filling out clozes while actually requiring a very specific answer (according to the key that is to say). It doesn't test one's understanding of English, it only tests the student's knowledge of the most common phrases. If you're after a workbook, which constitutes a whole half of the content of this one (!!!), buy the official CAE/CPE papers rather than this.

Don't ask why the raven is like a writing desk and expect one to answer '42'...
