5.0 out of 5 stars excellent choice for anyone studying for First Certificate
I am an English teacher and I would recommend this book to anyone who is studying for First Certificate, especially if they are studying alone. The cd provides practical examples of the grammar used in every chapter, together with the audio for the listening exam questions. Each chapter includes a exam question from the writing exam and a specimen essay for each question...

3.0 out of 5 stars Complete grammar
As a grammar for First Cert this is very comprehensive and it does have some additional exam type exercises, however it is not a stand alone preparation for the exam as you need to back it up with texts from other sources.

This review is from: Cambridge Grammar for First Certificate with Answers and Audio CD (Cambridge Grammar for First Certificate, Ielts, Pet) (Paperback)
I am an English teacher and I would recommend this book to anyone who is studying for First Certificate, especially if they are studying alone. The cd provides practical examples of the grammar used in every chapter, together with the audio for the listening exam questions. Each chapter includes a exam question from the writing exam and a specimen essay for each question is included in the key. This is particularly important for students studying alone as many other books only provide suggestions for ideal essay answers, whereas this book gives you the entire essay, so you can see what the examiners expect.

The only drawback to this book is that it doesn't cover the speaking part of the exam - you will need to download a sample exam from the Cambridge website or perhaps buy a book of past exam papers so you can see the style of the exam.

With my students I also use the book Cambridge Vocabulary for First Certificate with Answers and Audio CD. It's not as good value as this Cambridge Grammar book, as it's about the same price but only has 137 pages, but it does cover all the vocabulary expected for the exam.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit too simple, 18 Mar 2010

This review is from: Cambridge Grammar for First Certificate with Answers and Audio CD (Cambridge Grammar for First Certificate, Ielts, Pet) (Paperback)
I teach English and as this book provides good overview of English grammar, the grammar exercises seem too be a bit too easy for intermediate students. However the book is really good and helpful.

Good and comprehensive text. I only used it as a grammar reference to study to the FCE exam. I didn't make the exercises because I hadn't time.
Now, I have purchased the grammar for CAE/CPE and the last one is much more confusing than the one for FCE. If you are in the range from begginner to upper-intermediate and are studying for FCE exam I really suggest you to buy Grammar for first certificate.

The Grammar for First Certificate book is currently being used as supplementary material before taking the First Certificate Exam. It is clear, has good examples and the CD helps with listening skills.

This is a very good resource for anyone studying/preparing for the Cambridge First Certificate qualification. I would recommend using it along side the Cambridge Complete First Certificate text book and Vocabulary book.
