English for Specific Purposes (ESP) learning materials are devised to meet identified language needs of a specific group of students. They also reflect a view of the nature of language and learning, and foster collaboration among lecturers in a specific programme. These materials are situation-specific and form the backbone of a course. Since materials can be judged for a particular purpose, they warrant to be evaluated on a regular basis. As part of an ESP course evaluation, English and Study Skills (ESS) materials were evaluated in terms of Cronje's (1993) adapted criteria. The findings thereof can be used to improve the teaching of the ESP course and enhance the performance of the target students.
