    Repeat the book

    Suppose I am studying German, and the course is divided in 5 books. If I fail the book 4 final tests, is it right to say "I'll have to repeat book 4"? Is there a more natural way to say it?

    Your sentence is correct. You could also say "I'll have to do book 4 again".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
