Were that not enough, the book also provides an illuminating glossary of those grammatical terms which constitute the essence of good writing. There is a wealth of information and help here, brought together by a writer whose knowledge and breadth of experience is evident on every page. An enjoyable problem-solver while preparing for the exam, it also adds much to our appreciation of everything we read.
