    I use either 4 books to complete my exercises

    When I want to imply that I use whole of four books at one time to complete my exercises.
    How could I say "I use both 4 books to complete my exercises "
    or "I use either 4 books to complete my exercises " ?

    Thanks so much!

    "I use all 4 books to complete my exercises."

    Re: I use either 4 books to complete my exercises

    Not "either" - that's only one of two.
    Not "both" - that's two.

    I use all four books to complete my exercises.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
