Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐This book will not teach you about verbs and conjugations. It assumes that you already know and undersstand how grammar works and just jumbs into review. The writer does not know how to explain the subject and just assumes that someone else has done the hard work of teaching you the subject matter. I knew that I had wasted my money when reading the Introduction the author states that she assumes that you already have a background in Spanish, and have learned all of the verb tenses, then she goes on to recommend Spanish for Dummies if you are a rank beginner. Spanish for Dummies is also a worthless teaching guide, save your money and avoid the whole Spanish for Dummies series. The editors need to find authors who know how to do the hard work of explaining how a language works.
⭐I particularly like this book because every excercise provides both the correct spanish answer and the english translation. Many books don’t do that – and you are left to make assumptions as to the exact meaning of certain phrases or context.The book is easy to work on, you can move quickly from lesson to lesson, and the tips are quite helpful. But above all, those translations are what sets this book apart from many others.
⭐I am doing Spanish on line and got this book to help…it is great!
⭐I am hoping that I will be finally able to understand the difference with the Spanish Verbs. The book was exactly as described. Very good condition.
⭐Bought it and quit reading after a while .English is easier.
⭐I sent this to my daughter. She reports it was recieved in a timely mannor and is proving to be helpful.
⭐Love this book! Helped with the construction of sentences and overall understanding of a Beginning Spanish I class I took. Highly recommended!
⭐really good book for someone who has a bit of background in the language and wants to quickly learn more
⭐Well priced, automatically delivered book from the Kindle store, from a well-known author. The AMAZON one-click purchase system is very good.
⭐ItK’s even better than I expected! It turns out that it’s an exercise book, not just verbs 😀 Came in excellent condition (no answers in there haha) and delivery was super fast. Thank you!!
