A review has several meanings: 1. A teacher may say, ‘Today we will review the Civil War’. This implies that the topic has already been covered and you’ll be going over it again (to see how much you remember). 2. It may mean that you are having a review by a peer, teacher or even an employer…here, they are taking a look at how you are doing and determine what improvements can be made. 3. You can review a class, a play, a book, etc. and give your opinion of it. Hope this answer gets a good review.
