This is one of two books of exercises designed to accompany Thomson and Martinet's Practical English Grammar. They provide intermediate learners with a wealth of interesting and lively practice material, concentrating on those areas of grammar which generally cause most difficulty. The books may be used alongside the Grammar or on their own, with or without a teacher, and are particularly useful for revision. Answers are printed at the end of each book. Some changes have been made in the text to bring it up to date and five new exercises have been added. The exercises now follow the same...
The GRE Subject Tests are designed to help graduate
school admission committees and fellowship sponsors
assess the qualifications of applicants in specific fields
of study. The tests also provide you with an assessment
of your own qualifications.
Scores on the tests are intended to indicate
knowledge of the subject matter emphasized in many
undergraduate programs as preparation for graduate
study. Because past achievement is usually a good
indicator of future performance, the scores are helpful
in predicting success in graduate study.
The advancement of technologies was marvelous during the past half century; new analytical instruments have been being invented and improved. About 30 years ago, thin-layer chromatography (TLC) was being used most widely for detection and identification of drugs and poisons. Around that time, the use of GC/MS started in the field of medicine. Therefore, an ideal procedure for analysis of drugs and poisons was considered to be the screening by TLC, followed by the final identification and quantitation by GC/MS.
Phencyclidine (PCP) ( Fig. 8.1), a synthetic arylcyclohexylamine hallucinogen, had been first applied as an anaesthetic to animals and then to humans for a short period. PCP is known by street names of “angel dust” and “crystal”. Illicit use of PCP first appeared during mid-1960s along the West Coast, and then peaked in the United States in 1979; illicit PCP use declined by 1992. However, daily use of PCP has remained stable among young school seniors over the past decade; PCP is thus being an important drug of abuse [1–3].
One of the daunting challenges facing South Africa in the contemporary period is that of achieving social cohesion. Educational institutions should be at the cutting edge of the project to weave a common identity whilst promoting respect for difference. It was this challenge that motivated us to convene colloquia in 2003 and 2006 to discuss the current state of school desegregation and innovative ways to forge ahead in the complex processes of dismantling the legacies of the past and creating inclusive paradigms for our classrooms....
The principle underlying the development of
the ACT derives from the work of E. F.
Lindquist (1901–1978). Lindquist, a pioneer
in educational measurement and a cofounder
of ACT, devoted much of his professional life
to demonstrating that the best way to gauge
students’ readiness for college is to measure
as directly as possible their mastery of the
knowledge and skills required for success in
college studies. The tests of educational
development in the ACT measure a broad
range of educationally significant knowledge

While discussing traditional health practices and medical knowledge, one could
expect elders to give a list of the best techniques to cure sickness depending on the
various types of health problems or injuries they were facing in the past: how to

and so on. But the Inuit perspective encompasses much more. Along with
techniques to heal cuts and wounds, and to cure sickness...elders discussed
recollections of how to have a strong mind and a resilient body....
In the past 12 years, we have written a book on every
version of Exchange since its inception built on at least two
years of early adopter beta experience. This book, Microsoft
Exchange Server 2007 Unleashed, is the latest of our efforts.
However, unlike the past two major releases of Exchange
(2000 and 2003), Microsoft Exchange Server 2007,
although very similar, had enough differences that it
required complete rethinking of the way we wrote this
