I purchased this CD from a catalogue which proclaimed it was a comprehensive collection of 46 best-selling grammar programs. That sounded like a very complete program, encompassing several years' worth of grammar books. Therefore, the price ($225) did not seem too much, considering the value of such a complete program. However, that was not the case at all. The CD did not contain 46 programs, but rather, 46 individual lessons! Each lesson was no more than a 15 sentence exercise from a grammar book where multiple choice answers were provided, then the correct response given at the end. If you did poorly, you did not get additional practice, you could only go back and re-do those same 15 sentences! Not only that, the entire CD program was so simple, my 19 year old son could have written it. (In fact he's written more difficult programs himself). It was definitely a rip-off!
