I'm planning sometime this fall to take a stab at the Praxis II exam in French. I would like to get certified in another subject on top of Language Arts, and since my 2nd BA is in French Lit it makes sense to dust off my rusty grammars and do some practice.
Man, I forgot a lot after a couple years of dis-use! But this book is excellent, and I used it before to brush up when I was considering a government linguist job. It's funny how frustrating things which used to be second nature have become. My brain is rusty.
I wonder if there is a similar book for Spanish? It's a good method to gradually introduce grammar and vocabulary via real untranslated chunks of text. Make the reader figure out what's going on with a few clues!
