    "English can pose peculiar challenges even to good and advanced users. How many times have you heard celebrities airing their views with the phrase according to me? How many times have you seen newspaper headlines screaming at you—a hundred dead in a major rail mishap-? According to me does not mean I think and can you call a major accident a mishap?

    If such is the case of people whose English is good, imagine the plight of recent graduates and young job seekers who want to crack the English section of competitive exams! Most of them have studied English as a subject and managed to scrape through it with ‘pass marks’ and have never looked at it as a communication tool.

    For such people, help is at hand. Philip Sunil Solomon’s easy-to-understand English for Success in COMPETITVE EXAMS gives a crash course on grammar, usage, vocabulary, idioms and phrases with useful tips and practice exercises in reading and writing—all set on the question patterns of competitive exams.

    As a Project Associate at EFLU (English and Foreign Language University) and having worked as a freelance trainer in communicative skills in English), Mr Solomon is best-suited to write a book of this kind.

    The 31-unit book begins with parts of speech, tenses, modals, voice, and indirect speech, and takes the reader to techniques of cloze test, reading, and writing. Written in simple and plain English, the units are easy to understand. The practice tests at the end of the units check the users’ comprehension of the points discussed.

    Is youth singular or plural? What about offspring? Why is having wrong in the sentence they are having two flats? When do you use he left (Simple Past) and when, he had left (Past Perfect)? When do you write yours faithfully and when, yours sincerely? A number of such questions which often confuse, if not bother, the competitive-exam takers, are dealt with by Mr Solomon in the book.

    In the sections on reading and writing, the book takes the reader on a guided tour of the basics of reading and writing skills with analysis of both bad and good writing. There is a separate section on word power for reading and writing.

    Is the book A one-stop solution to all your competitive examination needs as the blurb on the back cover proclaims?

    It is."

    Sreenivas Andoju, Sr. Asst. Professor of English, Dept. of M&H, Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology, Hyderabad:

    "I am impressed with the contents of this book of grammar, English for Success in Competitive Exams. The presentation is lucid and quite self explanatory for the learners/users not just for the competitive exams but for academic and individual topic-wise remediation purposes also. Given for it's simple topic establishment, explanation and strong practice input, I have prescribed it for my remedial course students to buy and use it for their complete understanding of English grammar.

    The book covered all the topics useful for general understanding of the language for learners, for self taught candidates who are preparing for competitive exams and also for professional engineering and management students. It further can effectively be used for the benefit of learners who have read English at their secondary or higher education level for gaining good foundation and proficiency in English. "
