I have ordered over 10 Side by Side Plus Book 3 from Amazon and the service has been excellent. The books were delivered without a scratch and Amazon notified me and kept me informed when I had to wait longer then expected. I totally recommend ordering ESOL textbooks through them.

The books are great as a way to initiate conversations in ESOL-based classes. The test prep section is absolutely useful in helping students prepare for exams. I recommend using Side by Side Plus as an additional resource material if the main student textbook is grammar-based and lacking in conversational exercises. Overall, my students love it and they demanded we continue using Side by Side Plus for the following semester. I say, if the students are happy and learning English communicatively, I am happy too!

This is one of the best ESL books that I have ever found and I NEEDED to get a copy of it. Because I am a missionary and teach in a foreign country, I had to find one that was inexpensive but in good condition. The book was everything I wanted and included the CD which was not broken.

It suits the needs of our low intermediate ESL class very well. There are sufficient exercises to emphasize the topics. I like the emphasis on grammar, particularly verbs. However, we probably will not finish the book since we meet just once a week..
The civics lessons are apropos. Most of my students are not acquainted with the material presented. Several of them have lived here for years without becoming naturalized citizens, and it's all "news" to them..
I have used other general textbooks and materials aimed specifically at increasing particular skills such as reading or writing, but this is the best all-around textbook I have used.
