To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered this book as well as another one from the same author called "Everything you need to know about English language" I was under the impression that this one, due to the higher price, would contain more detail or would be aimed more towards English literature ( as it is called English Language Arts) however this book is a WORD FOR WORD REPLICA of the other one, but costs more. Another minor detail is the colour difference ( although this is bound to happen while shopping online). On the picture, the cheaper one looks to be a peachy colour and this one looks more Orange. This is another reason why I thought the books were different. However both the books are the same colour. Yes, it is useful and has good notes in it, however please look into the other book first as it is cheaper and has the EXACT SAME INFORMATION IN.
My son loves the format of these books and is enthusiastic about learning using the chapters. He likes the tests at the end of the chapter but his suggestion is that the answers should come separately so that children can't just cheat and turn the page.
The book is okay from inside. The chapters are quite helpful.The cartoons and doodle help a lot too. The text is also fun,so it can help a lot! But.. The problem is that the cover of the book was not in good condition as soon as I Opened it. It was bent from many places and it loooked like it was stuck forcefully to the base. You can definitely buy it but I am not quite sure if the cover quality or the binding quality would be up to the mark or not. The chapters are good and interesting as mentioned above. 2 stars taken only because of the cover ... And I guess it doesn't matter? But obviously if I am paying this much then I have the rights to have high expectation from the cover too.
Timely arrival. Excellent quality product. Serves the purpose of catching up 10-12 year old kids with what has been covered so far at school. Helps as a refresher for adults too. Totally worth the price.
O livro é muito didático e intuitivo. Perfeito para aqueles que já tem alguma noção do idioma e procuram fazer algum aperfeiçoamento. O livro é divido em 5 unidades: Grammar, language, reading fiction, reading nonfiction e writing. As unidades são todas bem ilustradas e diretas, como se fosse um resumão bem completo, tendo no final de cada capítulo exercícios de fixação.
This entire series is a fantastic resource. I use them as reference material during my tutoring sessions but they would be equally useful for private study or as an alternative presentation of material for a classroom teacher. Highly recommend.
