This book needs more questions. Very hard to work through as it is very different to the on line test.

Just trying to save people some money here...Overall the guide is pretty good, especially the spelling section, but I found that I did not really need this guide to pass! My advice would be to try one of the online mock tests on the government website...if you score 70% or over, just use the free advice on the internet! Hope this helps!

As a native English speaker, I found this book to be a real chore. The explanations behind the answers are scant and confusing to say the least. The book was lacking in any useful practical tips, and quite frankly you can get hold of the current spelling sets online. I suggest you go find them and memorise them. The ones in the book are outdated and unlikely to be on the 2014 exams since they swap the sets around every few months. There are also student forums and websites with many free tips, test questions and advice that is far easier to swallow than this beast. If you speaka teh Engerish already, then you don't need this book. Unless you particularly love getting bogged down in technical grammar jargon. Most English speakers can read a sentence and pick the correct missing phrase without knowing how; it just sounds right. Need help in the comprehension section? This book doesn't really help there either! The non-interactive sample tests available from the DfE website has far better guidance. Punctuation? I didn;t need this chapter as until August 2014, the punctuation section does not feature in the exam.

The only good thing about this book is it contains ONE practice test at the back.

This book is good for learning the principles of English however I'm dyslexic and really struggle on my spelling. I failed my first attempt because I got zero marks on the spelling section. So I used additional YouTube videos to help me (and there is some really good ones if you struggle with spelling aimed at adults). If your not a terrible speller then this book is good. However if your dyslexic like myself don't just rely on this one resource use YouTube, Dictionary's and I even downloaded apps designed for school children on my phone to help me practice when I was on my lunch breaks at work.

Did not help much with the actual test. Some people not native to the UK may find it useful as it covers basics, but other than that it was a waste of money.

I bought this for my daughter who is dyslexic and even though got an a in her gcse English, was worried about the literacy test. She found the spelling section useful even though none actually appeared on the test. She passed first time and so im giving the book an excellent review because it must have helped. She wants to be a maths teacher so was not worried about the numeracy test. She found both tests harder than the online practice tests but reading this book and doing the online tests was great preparation.
