Most of the time, the books I use are New Headway and Essential Grammar in Use - These are used widely in London Colleges. Easy for students to understand, but I supplement them with other Grammar books / materials.

For those taking "Life in UK" Exams, your resources will focus more on Citizenship and living in UK.
