This text is intended to be used by teachers in Africa to supplement their classroom teaching, and to enable them to test pupils in comprehension, vocabulary and in the skills of analysis and sentence completion. A wide range of relevant comprehension passages has been included. The core section of "Objective Questions and Answers in English" consists of 100 questions designed to test: grammar, vocabulary, semantics, punctuation, syntax and general comprehension. The 10 "Easier Preliminary Questions" with which the book opens help to familiarize the pupils with the book's multiple-choice approach in a way which will build their confidence to tackle the more difficult questions which follow. Some of the questions include a sample question and answer to ensure that pupils understand what it is they have to do. Unlike the first edition, this book does not include answer boxes. Students will therefore need to be provided with exercise books or plain paper on which to write their answers. A complete set of answers to all 110 questions appears at the end of the book. The material is arranged in such a way that one comprehension passage and three of the vocabulary or grammar exercises which follow can together form the basis of a full week's work in English. If the exercises are to be worked as tests, however, the teacher should allow one hour for completion of one comprehension passage and three of the shorter exercises to follow it. Many of the comprehension passages are suitable for reading aloud and could also be used to stimulate class discussion and creative work. The 40 composition topics suggested at the end of the book also provide a basis for creative work, perhaps in the form of one written exercise per week throughout the school year.
