5-0 out of 5 stars Longmann Course for TOEFL
An excellent book to pass TOEFL. Use the CD and pay attention to all the exercises and you will not have any problem in taking real TOEFL test.

1-0 out of 5 stars don't buy it
It's a waste of money and time. You can only use the reading section of the book.When you get the book , for example, for listening part you just have questions ,but you don't have the cd for the conversations. To use the other sections you need another audio series which are NOT in the market. Also the audio series you need is NOT mentioned buy the publisher. They give a cd with the book but it doesn't match with the book, it's totally different. I tied to contact with the publisher but they didn't answer my e-mail, they don't seem responsible. As a result, if you don't want to waste your money don't buy this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars This Book Needs A Warning Label
Although the Longman iBT TOEFL preparation book is generally well done, its main feature is one of the most deceptive sales practices I have ever seen in a textbook.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I am really amazed of how much idioms and colloquial expressions you can learn just by listening to the CD. And guess what - these are idioms and phrases you REALLY hear everyday on the street, usedby most people in everyday situations. Before, my English sounded a bit "artificial" and somehow forced. Now, the more I used the idioms I learnt here, the more natural and even friendly I sound to the native speakers.
4-0 out of 5 stars Useful Book
This is a good book to read, esp. for non-native English speaker. I learn many new expressions with ease (because the book provides proper context). The reason I give 4, instead of 5, is that there are (too) many repetitions throughout the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars A simple yet clever way to break into the "idiom barrier"
Remember your good old Englishtextbook which started with an introduction of the characters who would be in the dialogs throughout the units? That's how this book is laid out. Idioms are contextualized and there are various consolidation exercises between units to reinforce them. The accompanying CD is very clear and the voices convey the moods of the characters - although I must say that the man who does Bob's voice sounds incredibly boring at times as his voicedoesn't seem to show much pitch variation. Some of the idioms are alreadyknown to most high-intermediate students, but there are many others to learn, so it can certainly satisfy those studentswho resent not having enough "real-life"vocabulary in class. It may alsobe useful for the student working on his own, once the explanations are very clear. In a nutshell: It's worth buying if you're looking for a simple - yet effective - way to explore the most common idioms of American English. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars CLAD Text
A well written text essential for acquiring CLAD credentialing. Myths are perpetuated which greatly reduces the credibility - there is only one "race", humans or Homo sapiens. Very few of us were born or came from the Caucasus Mountains of eastern Europe, yet 17th century artificial constructs of "race" and "Caucasian" are used. There is no discussion of how skin pigmentation is an ecotype adaptation, not a "race." Science, Scientific American, Discovery and other peer-reviewed journals have corrected "race" misconceptions repeatedly - yet the authors, with education backgrounds, appear to have not completed a review of current literature.5-0 out of 5 stars Golden resource
I almost felt like I was cheating on the CLAD test. This handbook was a wonderful resource and the only one I used to pass the test .... the FIRST time!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Preparing to take the CLAD test.
Chapters 1 & 2 seemed very dry but I'm not big on theory. The remaining chapters were much more interesting. I highly recommend reading it before taking the CLAD test. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I love "Side by Side"
I was from China and started my life in the USA as a graduate student in Engineering.Although I took the TOEFL before I came to USA, my English is not good enough to express myself clearly and accurately. I decided to improve my English about 4 months ago and started to borrow some ESL books from local libraries.
5-0 out of 5 stars SIde By Side Book 3
My wife and I have been using Side By Side since living in Japan as ESL teachers 1987-89.We used the first edition way back then.My wife still is active tutoring English to Japanese in our area of the USA and this is an excellent series for English learners.We would recommend it to anyone from any culture.

4-0 out of 5 stars A conversational supplement
This is an amazing series of books for any age beginners of Oral English as a Second Language (American English). I taught this series in China for 3 years, and am currently an M.Ed student. This series not only allows an inexperienced teacher to be able to jump into any class and feel confident teaching, but offers a strong order to the subject matter that is taught. The vocabulary and grammatical forms that are introduced are very useful in daily life.

2-0 out of 5 stars too many mistakes
This pocket guide has several APA Style mistakes. The example paper is the most misleading.The text says one thing and the example shows another. e.g. putting the short title on the figure page.My students were very frustrated with it.

4-0 out of 5 stars No examples of aggregated databases
I realize a "pocket guide" cannot cover everything, but the lack of examples for aggregated databases such as libraries provide is a glaring omission. These databases (e.g., EBSCO, InfoTrac) are very important for college and university research today, and I can't understand why they were omitted. Otherwise, I love this book. I hope the author will correct this omission in the next edition.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quite useful.
This book was very useful in writing college papers in APA format. Since it is a pocket guide it doesn't have everything in it but I found it very useful and helpful. I would highly recommend this book. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Poorly Made
Although many people use this dictionary for their classes, I have noticed that they do no spend enough time to update the dictionary.There are many current words that are not in, like blog. However, the most unappeling thing is that their books as poorly make.They one section of the dictionary in one font, and oter sections in another, it looke like they just put pieces together.
4-0 out of 5 stars Varying Dialects
It is quite complete with all the verb forms, comjugations and tenses that we learned in High School. But, because of the varying dialects, there were a few words I could not find. Living in the Southwest, the Mexican influence over the Spanish is marked. For instance the word 'estraner'or 'te estrano', for "I Miss You"is not in this dictionary which made it a disappointment for me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for basic levels
I've had this dictionary for about eight years.I would have to say that if you are in the basic levels of learning spanish or maybe reading a simple novel in spanish, this would be your best bet.It is easy to use and easy to read although a little bulky.The only complaint that I have about it is that as I began reading more difficult novels and encountering words that are less common, this dictionary did not come into as great a use as it has in years past.But, like I said if you are doing beginning or intermediate levels of spanish, this would probably be your best bet. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A fun way to learn some Spanish
As intended by William C. Harvey, this book and the 3 CD's are a fun way to learn some Spanish.I am still enjoying the products.They are great for the non-serious student who just wants to learn some useful ways of communicating with Spanish speakers.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Spanish Learning Tool Yet
I have purchased many books and tapes over the years in order to learn Spanish, but they were all in Spanish and I had to sit for hours with the book in front of me to make any sense out of it.Then my boss told me about Spanish for Gringos with Compact Discs.It's the best yet!The teacher on the CD speaks so clearly that it's easy for me to both understand and repeat his words.He believes in repetition -- the best way to learn -- and he explains what he's saying both in Spanish and English.The book comes with 3 disks, so I keep one in my car, one in my kitchen CD player, and one in my bedroom CD player.I pick one phrase each day and write it down and memorize it, so my ability to speak the language is growing daily.I listen to at least one tape every day while cooking, and when I am driving back and forth to work.I am learning quickly, both to speak and understand Spanish. One can learn with just the CD's alone, although the book is very clear also.I recommend this book to anyone who wants to communicate with the Hispanic community.It's easy and fun!

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great place to start.
As a small business owner I desparately needed to break through to the Spanish-speaking community.I began with this book, then over a few more years I ended up with a BS in Spanish and fluency in the language.But when I entered the first class at the university, I was WAY ahead of the rest of the students and stayed that way because of this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great textbook for ESL classes
I have been using this book to teach grammar classes for ESL students and my intermediate/advanced students' grammar skills have improved a lot.This book has a lot of excercises, which makes this book practical as a course material, as it provides students with plenty of homework where they learn to apply the concepts they learned in the book.I highly recommend this book for whoever teaches English grammar to foreign students.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's one the best grammar I'v seem !
It's easy and usful, so that I could improve my grammar in classromm and at home by myself. As a ESL student, I don't like the grammar book that full of technology because the book like that only drives me crazy and headache. It a very proper book for ESL students. ... Read more

Bought it for my son who needed it for high school.Very clear and easy to understand.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nisf wa nisf
This dictionary is just ok for the Arabic language. In the E-A section the words given to you for English words are correct to useabout 65-75% of the time and they don't give many secondary or tertiary options for them. The Oxford is far better as E-A as not only do they give multiple meanings but they give appropriate prepositions and articles with them. As for A-E this dictionary is listed American style, completely alphabetically. However the Arabic language uses a root system to form words making the American way of looking up words is extremely inefficient for Arabic. If you know any Arabic at all the Hans Wehr is easy to use and the best dictionary by far for A-E translating.

2-0 out of 5 stars Insufficient vacabulary
Not a good source for anyone starting to learn arabic. The arabic exglish translation is insufficient. Also words that are in Quran are not easy to find in this dictonary.

5-0 out of 5 stars When they don't understand English
This is a must book for anyone who has to teach a content area to students who are learning English, whose home language is other than English. It provides an excellent instrument for self-evaluation, if one is the content-area teacher. I highly recommend it to all teachers who have English language learners in their classrooms. Nowadays, that is almost ALL teachers, K-16.

3-0 out of 5 stars Tough to Categorize--a little of everything
I bought this book based on the great reader review, but now that I have it I'm not sure what to do with it. It's true, if you need a lesson and have nothing to start with--a rarity in my experience--you could whip something up with this. But, if you have a course book and need more work on a grammar point, it's hit or miss if the grammar is covered in this book. There are vocabulary lists--weather, time, school, travel--but not work, homes, food. There are some good pronunciation exercises, and an excellent list of idioms. But this is the kind of resource that I'll check once in awhile on the chance it will have something, but I won't count on it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Very Useful!!!!
If you need to whip up a lesson or you have a great activity and need somespecialized vocabulary...this is it!This book is also very helpful whenyou can't think of examples "off the top of you head," but youknow the "grammar-point" you want to make.For instance, itlists exceptions to rules, idioms, prespositions, common mistakes made byspecific groups of language learners, etc... I've used it at least threetimes a week for four years! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for a class or one-on-one teaching.
Real language acquisition comes from receiving comprehensible input in the target language, AND from practicing output. 5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful
I am very pleased with the book I ordered.I recieved it very quickly and it was in better shape than indicated.Thank you very much.

1-0 out of 5 stars No evidence to support this approach
Real language acquisition comes from receiving comprehensible input in the target language, not from practicing output. This has been well researched and documented by Krashen, Asher, and others. No valid research has ever contradicted this. Expressways gives practice for output and grammar training, which might help slightly in the performance of the language, but will not at all help in the real acquisition or understanding of the language. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars CD-ROM VERY DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW
I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY MOTHER WHO WANTED TO IMPROVE HER ENGLISH. IT CAME WITH A CD-ROM THAT IS SUPPOSE TO WORK AS A NARATIVE TO THE BOOK. THE BOOK ITSELF IS ACTUALLY VERY HELPFULL. BUT THE CD-ROM IS DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW. IT TOOK US A WHILE TO FIGURE OUT WHERE IN THE BOOK THE CD STARTS. ONCE YOU FIND YOU PLACE ITS VERY DIFFICULT TO KEEP PACE AND KEEP YOUR PLACE. SHE NO LONGER USES THE CD WITH THE BOOK BECAUSE IT BECAME MORE CONFUSING THAN HELPFUL. IF THE BOOK WAS SOLD BY ITSELF IT WOULD HAVE RECEIVED A BETTER REVIEW. BUT THE BOOK IS SOLD AS A SET WITH THE CD-ROM AND THE COMPATIBILITY OF THE TWO ARE LESS THAN BENEFICIAL. YOU WILL END UP USING THE BOOK WITHOUT THE CD. SAVE SOME MONEY AND BY THE BOOK BY ITSELF OR FIND ANOTHER SET TO WORK WITH.

3-0 out of 5 stars Better for teachers than students
I found this book to be quite useful for me, as I am a teacher of beginning English in classes comprised mostly of latinos. I speak and read Spanish at least half as well as English. Ingles para Dummies has a lot of lists of vocabulary and of expressions, and pages of examples I can incorporate into my lessons.But it is not likely to be useful for its avowed purpose, that is, for a student trying to learn English by him/herself.
