Superb Grammar Drill - Very Effective Product  April 9, 2011

My students chose this textbook after completing Dos Mundos En Breve. We have been holding Spanish cl[censored] for three years in the Santa Barbara City College Continuing Education program. We voted on what textbook would best carry us through the next 6 or 7 terms (we only meet once a week for 2 hours, for ten weeks at a time) and everyone agreed this textbook was well written, had great explanations, lots of practice and provided a solid review, an excellent reference, and answers in the back and a CD. It is very specific, and must be studied to be appreciated. This is not meant for easy learning.
