    to reach a point

    If you want to ask a teacher or a student which point of a book he has reached so far, what's the most common question you'd ask in English?

    1) Where have you got up to with grammar/the book/ the programme?
    2) How far have you got up to?

    Are these two possible? Would you use the simple past in this kind of question even though the time is not specified?

    Thank you for your help.

    Re: to reach a point

    I would delete the "up to" parts.

    How far have you got(ten) in the book? (still working on it)
    How far did you get in the book? (past history)
