I used this book for revision purposes leading up to my Spanish GCSE exam papers in May 2010, at the age of 42. I found the book to be easy to follow, well structured and attractively laid out, with good sized print and plentiful exam rehearsal questions. I almost exclusively used this book in the last two or three days before the examination day and ended up with a Grade A, so it worked for me. I did flick through a few other Spanish revision guides but they were tedious to follow and markedly less intuitive and helpful.

I do GCSE Spanish and this is really helping me with it, especially the grammar section it really helps with general sentence structure

I recently bought this book to help me with revision and it is now plays a beneficial part in my revision routine; Not only has my level soared but I have found myself to becoming more engaged as I can compare and elaborate on what I have read in the book and what I learn in the lesson. It is well set out and the content is brilliant but I do feel as if it skimps on details and this often leads me to using the internet(This is the only reason I have given it 4 stars.)! I feel that the authors of this revision book worried to much about appealing to the readers and they occasionally insert jokes which can be mistaken for actual content.I have found it is easy to carry as it is fairly light and the size of an A4 piece of paper.
Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who has a firm grasp of Spanish and wants to do well I their GCSE's!

This book is a good one if you want to learn Spanish grammar in a humerous way. It's light hearted but puts the point across well. Not just for people doing exams but for any of us who are trying to learn Spanish.

I am already able to speak spanish but am not fluent or always grammatically correct so I bought this to improve and to possibly take an exam in the future. It is very clear and helpful.

If you're a fan of the CGP books I'd definitely go for this! I'm in Year 11 and I'm not all that good at Spanish but I find this very useful! Particularly when it comes to written work, this book breaks down the different tenses (eg. imperfect, preterite etc.), and also explains the different grammatical rules. It has sections on the different topics such as Home, Area and family - pretty much all of the major topics!
The French one is also great and they are well worth the money!
BUY NOW!! :D

As a mature student studying Spanish I found this book to be an excellent addition to my course books. Practical and concise worth buying.

I took this book and Practice Paper from Instituto Cervantes, to help one of my students to prepare his exam. I was puzzled to see that their mock exams are full of mistakes. Same the book, I think that is just unacceptable, very unprofessional and they should review their material and publish it again.

Some examples: Mis asignaturas favoritas fueron el espanol y el aleman, when the correct thing is: Mis asignaturas favoritas eran el espanol y el aleman.

El asaltador, when it el asaltante

Cuando volvimos a casa comprobamos que estaba demasiado grande. When the correct way will be: era demasiado grande

Another hilarous detail, when they talk about Navidad en Argentina, the whole writing sounds strange as written for a foreign who doesn't really have a good grasp of the language. Besides that it mention that the tradition is to eat turkey. I am from there and nobody eats turkey for Christmas, they should have research a bit more or chosen another country, such as Colombia.
