Overview

REA’s Super Reviews help students brush up on tough subjects. They are more thorough than ordinary subject reviews but less complex than voluminous study guides. Numerous solved problems accompany the review and bring it to life. The English Language Super Review includes an extensive review of grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. A glossary of usage is also included. Exercises and quizzes enable students to check whether they have learned what they need to know, whether they understand the subject and have command of it.
