5.0 out of 5 stars Great for CAE and CPE
One of the best book you can find - if not the best - for English self studying. This book is very well organized and covers both grammar and vocabulary, and it's great if you are studying for CAE and CPE since every exercise has been conceived with those exams in mind. By the way, if you are looking for some "fancy pictures and a low level vocabulary" (check some other...

1.0 out of 5 stars You'd better find something else!
The school I'm working for is currently using this book and nobody likes it. First of all, it introduces high level vocabulary without any pictures: as a consequence, students tend to translate every single word. Grammar exercises are extremely dry and boring. Very limited attention is paid to collocations and set phrases. In addition, the level of creativity that it can...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for CAE and CPE, 25 Sep 2012
This review is from: Advanced Language Practice: Student Book Pack with Key (Paperback)
One of the best book you can find - if not the best - for English self studying. This book is very well organized and covers both grammar and vocabulary, and it's great if you are studying for CAE and CPE since every exercise has been conceived with those exams in mind. By the way, if you are looking for some "fancy pictures and a low level vocabulary" (check some other reviews around here...) this is not the book for you. On the other hand, if you want a book packed in concise explanations and a lot of exercises, look no further. Michael Vince is never a let down.

Very concise descriptions, and a section of useful practice exercises. Nice vocabulary section too, as well as skills section. Good for C1 level students. Appropriate for classroom or self-study. Great series

1.0 out of 5 stars You'd better find something else!, 8 Jan 2012
This review is from: Advanced Language Practice: Student Book Pack with Key (Paperback)
The school I'm working for is currently using this book and nobody likes it. First of all, it introduces high level vocabulary without any pictures: as a consequence, students tend to translate every single word. Grammar exercises are extremely dry and boring. Very limited attention is paid to collocations and set phrases. In addition, the level of creativity that it can generate in class is less than zero.
I would suggest, instead, "Natural Grammar" by Scott Thornbury (OUP) or, if you would like your students to practice grammar more freely, "How English Works" my Michael Swan (OUP). That's good fun, and it really works!

2.0 out of 5 stars fake cd's, 20 Oct 2009

This review is from: Advanced Language Practice: Student Book Pack with Key (Paperback)
Book is quite good for self-studying, but there is big problem with CD, I was unable to get through the installation process and I couldn't get any help from book publisher. Really poor customer service. What is worst, there's the same problem with CD software installation from FCE book. I can only add that I am using MS-Vista system.
