Practice Makes Perfect: Complete Spanish Grammar by Gilda NissenbergThis book was really good in terms of explaining many grammar points and providing examples but the amount of exercises did not even compare to the Spanish Verb Tenses of the series. The latter included so many exercises that it was difficult not to cement certain grammar rules into ones head. This book can be said to serve the polishing of the skills rather than practising until you become perfect purpose.
Moreover, in comparison, I found Spanish Verb Tenses more consistent with their answers which made it easier to do the exercises correctly. Here, even though the vocabulary section provides a couple of versions of the same word/expression, when you do the writing task you find only one of the expressions used and therefore you cannot know if there actually was a possibility to use another expression/word which was available in the useful vocabulary section and how would that have changed the structure of the sentence.
Finally, I did not understand what was the use of personal questions as exercises if the book is meant for individual learners who have no teacher to confirm whether their answers are grammatically correct or not? These personal questions were the most annoying since I saw no point in answering them.
