It is one of the old trusty books you can always keep in your teaching bag for emergency use, as it covered all grammatical issues and explained everything so clearly. I frequently advised students to buy it, either to study with me or, more often, for independent study, as it works absolutely great for students to teach themselves grammar in a systematic way while focusing on speaking skills in lessons.
This new edition has been completely ruined by someone who clearly has literally no experience either as a teacher or as a student of English as a foreign language.
It is printed on that shiny paper that weighs half a ton and that you cannot write on properly in pencil. When you try to rub something out it turns into a complete mess. Despite being a larger book than the old one, the pages feel far more cramped and there is less space to squeeze the answers in than the old one had.
The grammar explanations are somehow less clear than they were in the old edition, even though I cannot work out what they have changed, other than to add in random smears of light blue here and there so that it isn't just a black and white book. Adding colour printing makes it more expensive, for no useful reason at all.
if you can find an old edition of this book, jump at it, that one got 5 stars.
The index is substandard. You won't find "possessive pronouns", "subordinate clauses", "predicate" and things like that, making it at best difficult to refer to the contents of the lessons, assuming such lessons are there.
So it's good as far as it goes but it doesn't go far. The descriptions and "look inside" are unhelpful in choosing a book to meet particular needs so it might be best to browse a selection at a bookship or library before buying.
Covers everything you need to know about english language in use
The teachers misjudgement of my needs and character cost me a packet as it's a rather expensive purchase and unnecessarily so if it's information you're after. You see, and you will see as unfortunately there's no getting away from it, the exorbitant cost of this book relates to the printing costs because on each page there's a multitude of colours, numerous cartoons/pictures and different fonts in various sizes; all of which is overwhelming. Because of so many things vying for attention I found this book immensely difficult to read and gave up after several attempts. My guess is the author is a friend of the teacher who interviewed me for the course. Regardless, my outlay for this garish rubbish means I'm unable to purchase something suitable for a while and I'm now on the course and feel well out of my depth as I've no idea about the grammar I'm supposed to have swotted up on.
