    Good book

    I read Wren & Martin's Eng Grammar book and this book written by Ms. Jayashree Balan, along with many other books. I can say that this book by Ms. Balan is next to Wren&Martin's book.
    I got cleared all my queries related to English Grammar.
    Can be recommended for students in classes for 7th through 10th in schools.
    Conversations given are very simple, clear, and perfect.
    Only missing is phonetics' section. I hope Ms. Balan will compose another book which includes this section in detail.

    On t...

    Not Enough

    It is good but not enough to teach.It is only hearing knowledge we have but not in conversation mode.

    Not for beginners!

    first of all this book is not the right one if you are a beginner. moreover the speaker in the CD has a South Indian accent which might confuse you with the pronunciation of the words in English. at an Advanced level this book is recommended!

    Good buy

    i bought this book somethime back, and yes I would say this is pretty good, informative, rather than giving too much of detailed explanation on the grammer piece, it rather gives small sentences, which needs to be constructed in english. is a good buy
