Top Customer Reviews

Personally this is a total dissapointment because of the following:
1. I was looking for some specific grammar learning tool and thought this was what I needed. However, it also contains math and other unrelated items, a contradiction with respect to the title itself.
2. Grammar exercises are poorly prepared. Questions were asked without giving a lesson first. Answers to questions are brief and unsatisfactory, and often with no examples whatsoever.
3. There was supposed to be a TV show or some sort of video according to the box, there is no such thing when you actually run the program -> more contradictions.
4. There is some annoying and irrelevant game, totally unrelated to the objective of grammar learning.
To summarize the title of the CD-ROM does not reflect the contents at all, it is inconsistent and full of contradiction. I got so angry at the end that I returned it... waste of time and money :(

Do not waste your money buying this product! I am angry that I read the first review and thought I was getting a program that would be a good grammar review. It was a waste of time. I had to give the product one star because of Amazon's format. It should be a no star product.

Don't waste your money if you want to learn grammar. This program does not teach, it only provide simple quizes that you can finish in one sitting, yes, the whole program in one sitting.
