Great use of DVD

"This series is an excellent use of DVD. You can more around, take quizzes and a final exam that is pretty cool. These guys and girls (who look good) take you through the boring stuff with some flair. I recommend these to anyone needing help in Grammar."
I beg to differ... all flash, no substance.

"Good luck remembering anything you were "taught" in this program! There's no structure, no method. The stuff is just "thrown out at you" and you're supposed to absorb it somehow. The kids are cute, and some of the jokes were kinda funny, but I found myself having to watch it over and over, trying to figure out what they were trying to teach me. If you really want to learn grammar, look for something more instructional."
Good for Review of the Basics of Grammar

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD takes you at a rapid speed through the basics of grammar. There are three more DVDs in this series that deal with grammar and punctuation.
The DVD may be best used perhaps for a review of grammar -
to brush up on what you know.
If you're starting from scratch,
it may also been a solid introduction - getting acquainted with
the elements of grammar. If words like "adverbs" or "adjectives" sound like mystical language to you - they will be demystified here.
On the other hand, if you're struggling with conjugating irregular verbs, you'll still have to pick a good grammar book and to memorize the verbs you don't know.
And, as a matter of fact, this DVD is best used in conjunction with a good grammar book. DVD only helps to learn and memorize areas of grammar faster, but it does not replace the need to work separately on the areas that may be challenging for you.
