the book already looks ten years old but so far has met my translation needs. I do think the general stuff in the middle could be replaced with more vocabulary. ok but not great!

The book is well laid out and with clear explanations and examples. Using the crossword format for practice from the start.It has graded practice crosswords plenty of them so that you can reach the level of those in the serious newspapers. Plus there are good explanations to the answers of all the practice crosswords. A good buy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing!, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wondered if I would find the book helpful before I bought it and took some time to decide to buy it,And overall I didn't! The areas covered seems thin compared to another book I have. Plus , although I knew beforehand I think it is a mistake to not include a series of actual crosswords to complete for more practice. I find lists of clues boring to do after a while. So I made a mistake it was not for me!

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible taste, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems to work as a performance drink, but why does it have to taste so sweet and horrible. By now it is not beyond the powers of these companies,like the soft drinks industry, to create a reasonable taste. Such a shame as it is good value for money - just a revolting taste as a side effect!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as sharp as could be!, 2 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The knife it is a better shape than the photograph shows. The blade is a little broader. The handle is also a bit more solidly fitted than I feared. But it is not5 very sharp, which is the main point. No James Martin slicing and chopping of onions with this knife. A shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to Work, 2 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product had no smell which was good. The spray was not fine enough which meant it was hard not to soak some fabrics. I have a very small flat and it did't go very far, but it does seem to have worked.
