5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 18 Dec 2011
This product helped my wife pass the test first time. It gives comprehensive preparation from all angles and allows one to tailor the preparation to weak areas on the test. This is the single most useful resource out there and I would encourage all who are taking the test to purchase this.
Making Sense of Grammar by Prof David Crystal
Making Sense of Grammar by Prof David Crystal

This is a very useful book indeed. It builds on its sister volume (Rediscover Grammar) by providing an explanation of style and usage for grammatical items. The two books are complimentary. 'Rediscover Grammar' provides the basic explanation, whereas 'Making Sense of Grammar' shows how grammar relates to semantics and pragmatics. I haven't encountered any other book that does this, let alone so well. David Crystal believes that this approach (linking grammar with semantics and pragmatics) is the future. I completely agree.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Other View, 18 Nov 2010
This work is explosive and a mine of historical information. History is about perspectives and what is presented here is not the standard Sunni view of the troubled succession period. Most Muslims are troubled by this period and its events and so don't look into it at all. For Sunnis the period and its protagonists have religious significance and so what is available usually is somewhat white washed or uncomfortable. This book provides the latter in a scholarly and well-researched portrayal.
