“ of the strengths of these books is that the tasks go beyond the ‘usual’ and really give the student practice at other essential university level reading skills, such as analysing the text for purpose, reading recall, annotating, comparing two texts, and reading with a focus question in mind.

The wide variety of skills and tasks presented requires the students to read and reread the texts, getting the most out of every page. And, if students find they need even more practice, there is a dedicated website for both students and teachers with links to additional websites for the skills practised.

All in all, this reading course book is ideal for someone who has a high English level and now wants to learn the skills and strategies necessary to be an efficient and effective reader at college level.”   

- Hilary Livingstone for IATEFL Voices, Issue 238, May-June 2014

“This high-quality series presents teaching materials underpinned by the latest research and honed by classroom feedback. Designed for teaching reading and writing either separately or in an integrated way (with the Source Book being essential for either option), it will help students develop important skills for tertiary settings in either case.”

- Patrick Coleman (Lincoln University) for the TESOLANZ newsletter, September 2014
