Wow! This thread has been quiet for quite some time. Let's liven up.

Any mummies out there can advise whether these books are a gem or not worth to buy? As they are optional items in my child's booklist.

1. Eng supplementary pupil book 5 by MC
2. Eng grammar handbook P5&6 by MC
3. Complete Eng Grammar by Scholastic

FantasyLandDreams,

For Eng, there are too many components. I break it down by different assessment books to target different component. I consolidate all different components in past year paper for quick revision. Hope this helps.

Vocabulary is so wide and no limit since we are talking about eng language. Doing so much assessment books can only do so "much".

Read as much as much as possible and read widely.
