Customer reviews

By malihe 14 Oct 2012 2

world of essential college vocabulary-book 2 is written by Margaret Ann Rickek and Susanne Francine Picch.I am going to review and introduce it to the readers.
-This book is just good for advanced level students,while students are different in background and knowledge in a class.
-The style of book is limited.There is no grammer to teach too.So it does not allow different teaching and learning styles.
-There is no any apply etymology for worlds,and it takes time to refer dictionary to find that.So it is not a good resource for learners.
-Generally there should be a page to review whatever you learn and answer key in each part at the end of every section.But there is not.
-it's package does not have the Cassette player or CD for learning correct pronunciation of new world.
-The context of book is designed step by step,and every chapter has 3 parts.
-The examples are good and enough.
-There are many exercises,multiples choises,replacement,etc to learn more and better.
-The cover of book is related with it's title.Also the pictures in pages are suitable.
-The font of book is too tiny.It confused and boring for learners.
-it is just published recently.
