Editorial Reviews

Review

This small book is excellent. I got my first copy about 30 years ago and I currently use it as a teaching aid. I recommend this book to all my English students and especially non-native instructors. An excellent book for all native and non-native speakers of English language.

I first used the "Student Companion" when I was a student at secondary school in the 1970s. Initially I was just trying to impress other students in debates by using big words that I read from the book but as I developed, I found the book as an excellent reference book on a diverse range of subjects such as English language, History, Geography and nature study, among others.

I have the latest revised copy of the book (1991 edition) which I sometimes refer to. I encourage my kids that are at secondary school to use it for general knowledge.

For a book that was written several decades ago but is still popular, I consider it as a timeless classic that every secondary school student should have in their library.

The best companion a student could have. This book was my constant companion years ago. My son is now enjoying the wealth of knowledge. Thanks for still having it around.
