PTB Power Tab ) Intermediate English Part-I book has failed to win the favour of teachers as well as the students and needs to be revised at the earliest. The PTB revised the intermediate English-I book course in an effort to bring the courses of study at par with the contemporary trends in literature and language some three years back.
