This may be a good grammar book to use as a thorough review for an older student, but I don't recommend it for students who are not well versed in grammar. The lessons introduce a topic inadequately by giving only a definition, then a few examples, before presenting a set of 10-12 rather difficult problems. I feel there is too little effort given to developing a firm understanding of the topic. This proved to be very frustrating for our 7th grader, and after two weeks we shelved the book. We may return to it in high school, possibly as a prep/review prior to entering college.

This is a very complete grammar course. If your child is lacking in this area I would wait a year after the publishers suggestion. This is serious grammar. As with all CLP materials, the bargain and quality cannot be beat.
