I used it. It was brilliant and really useful in aiding me to pass Higher English. I recommend you have a look through the book.

Did you get a C, B or A? I would want an A rather than just a C (although a C right now would be a miracle)

That is a really good book to help people who are just on the borderline. It really is great at helping those on the verge of failing, and transforming them into passing well. My grammar is really bad there!

I didn't use it for English but I used it for Computing (Higher). It's worked like a charm. It got me an A. If the English version is anything like the ICT one then I'd deffinitely recommend it! biggrin.gif

Yes people should definately use that range of books. However, if you have no previous knowledge of a subject whatsoever, I'd recommend you also get assistance in the form of tutoring or asking the moderators here. The situation that someone has no previpous knowledge of English is probably extremely rare though!

I'll agree on that one... hehe.

Yeah, i'm using that book in computing and it's pretty good, although it would probably be better if our teacher didn't base everything he teaches us around it... It's more like a book that you go to when you're confused as to what the hell the teach is on about, not a tool for the classroom in that sense... I dunno if anyone can understand what I'm supposed to be saying there... blink.gif unsure.gif

I didn't know there was an english one, I may go have a look for it... biggrin.gif xx

I got that book on the advice of this thread. I've went froma close fail to a decent pass. It's a bit late if you haven't got it but if you can borrow it from anyone (although you might have to wrestle it from them) it was great. I got a 40 in a close reading today, thats from about 26 in January. And I can now pass an essay.
