*Functions
including; Starting and finishing, talking about success and failure, talking about cause and effect, remembering and sensing, agreeing and disagreeing, talking about beliefs and opinions, deciding and choosing, claiming and denying, liking and disliking, praising and criticising.

The book has 60-two page units. The units are organised into different sections. First, we start with important informations about collocations in general. Then there are sections looking at grammatical and other special aspects of collocations. The rest of the book deals with collocations that relate to particular topics such as Weather and Business, concepts such as Time or Change and functions such as agreeing or Liking and disliking.

Studying collocation is highly recommended if you want to make a good imporession with your natural and accurate use of English.

OK i think is by far the best...oh well...

This is a topic that causes a lot of problems for non-native speakers and this book covers the subject well. In particular (like all "in Use" books) there is a good mix of explanation and exercises.

Easy to use, clear sections.
Rather serious in tone but great for revision or reference use.
It covers the full range of collocations and modifiers.

This book is helping me with some easy, but most of the time, confunsing words to collocate.
It's divided in chapters about subjects, what is very useful especially because this can help you in decide with what words/subjects to start.
