1.0 out of 5 stars Unfit for purpose - do not buy!, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is not fit for purpose. From the start there are spelling, grammatical, stylistic and factual errors that are glaringly obvious:
- Passage 1: "...the statute is the tallest and most recognisable statute in America..." (in a passage discussing the Statue of Liberty)
- Passage 1, Section III: "The police kicked the on the door..." (repeated use of ‘the’)
- Passage 2, Q3: "...he defied belied by becoming South Africa’s first black president..." (in a passage discussing Nelson Mandela).

These are not all of the mistakes in the first five pages, merely the most obvious; the material has been written by someone whose understanding of English is insufficient for the job and it does not appear to have been checked for errors before going to print.

Seriously folks, avoid spending money on this, you will be wasting it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Little Variety!, 12 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The charms arrived promptly, however, over half (21) of the charms were hearts, 5 were flowers, 4 were Christmas charms (!), there were 2 butterflies and the remainder were different one-off designs. The charms had been purchased as gifts for a cross-section of over 20 children (boys and girls), so most were totally inappropriate - I therefore had to come up with something different!
