This book does what it says on the cover - it is conjugations of 301 Polish verbs. If that is what you want it is the book for you. However, two health warnings: 1) the book is physically quite heavy (not as bad as a hard back, but no pocket edition either). As I don't have a car, it's my at home on the shelf reference book, rather than anything I take to my Polish classes with me. 2) Despite its size, it won't necssarily cover all the verbs you are interested in as thoroughly as you might hope. As a complete beginner back when I bought it, I was expecting every verb I came across in class (at least in the first few years) to be in there - it wasn't. The book could also do with a few more notes about which of the verbs it covers in its examples at the bottom of the page (rather than the verbs that get covered in full in the main body of the page) are imperfective and which are perfective, and what the paired verb is, if any.

Having said all that, this is the only Polish verb conjugation book I'm aware of on the market and it's perfectly clear about the verbs it covers in full. It even has grammar exercises (albeit ones it took me at least four years of Polish classes to be able to fill in). I just don't want readers to get over-excited about how wonderful it is before buying (based on the other reviews). It does have its limitations. But, if conjugations are what you're looking for, unless someone brings out a better book, this is the one for you. Overall, I would say it is well worth the money I paid for it.

Format: Paperback
As it says, it conjugates 301 Polish verbs (one per page) in full detail - present, past, future, conditional, imperative and participles. This takes up most of each page. This is followed by a small amount of information about usage, a list of prefixed verbs derived from the original verb, and 4 example sentences using the verb.

It is always four examples, even for verbs which have lots of different prefixes with different meanings. More help with usage would be more useful than all the grammatical detail, much of which is predictable. For example, as far as I know, the conditional is always formed in the same way, so listing it in full is a waste of space.

Also, with prefixed verbs it does not tell you the imperfective form. So adding za- to imperfective robic (to do) gives perfective zarobic (to earn), but the book does not tell you the zarobic is perfective, or that the imperfective of zarobic is zarabiac. So although they claim to include nearly 2300 verbs, for most of them they only give one aspect, which is only half the story.

In addition, the way the verbs of motion are treated is confused. In the case of chodzic/isc, prefixed forms are shown for chodzic (so they are imperfective), but for jezdzic/jechac, they are shown for jechac (so are perfective) - none of this is explained, so a beginner could easily be misled.

If you are really struggling with verb forms, it is OK, but when I want to know how verbs are used, I find it is very little use.

After searching high and low for a book that could facilitate the sometimes arduous task of conjugating Polish verbs, I think the search is finally over. 301 Polish Verbs, by Klara Janecki, offers a logical and clear approach to learning the Polish verb. Simply by turning the first few pages you get the immediate immpression that this is a quality book. Written with wonderful attention to detail, and with explanations that are presented in clear effective English, success with the Polish verb is not too far around the corner. In addition, the contextualized examples give you a reasonable insight into how the verb can become an active part of your Polish vocabulary. For anyone who wants to increase the speed and effectiveness of their learning, this is a book for you.

This is one of the books that I carry EVERY day in my bag to help with my study (which I largely do on the train). It provides a very useful reference for a reasonable number of verbs, with the conjugation in present, past, future, conditional and imperative. There are examples at the bottom of each page showing the verbs in use. These examples are the only bit that I find disappointing about this book, as they could have been used to provide useful phrases as well as examples of conjugation. In reality, very few of the examples are likely to be used as phrases in their own right.

I can't recommended this book enough. It's extremely clear compared to other verb books that I have used, and contains great additional sections featuring idioms and exercises to test your verb knowledge.
Perfect and imperfect verbs are listed alongside each other, which aids with learning them (which can be slightly taxing at times due to various - often unpredictable - stem and letter changes), and there are contextualised examples at the bottom of each page.
There is not much else to say. This book simply provided everything that I could have asked for in a verb book. I used it alongside "Polish in 4 Weeks" and it really helped me to understand and feel confident in using the different tenses in everyday speaking while I lived in Poland.
Worth every penny.
