Format: Paperback
Absolute beginners should I think start with Teach yourself "get started in Russian", and then move on to this one.
I think this set (and other sets from other authors) go too fast at the beginning for absolute beginners.

From my experience, 2 remarks:
1. no point spending too much time on learning the declinsons perfectly, it s not gonna help understanding Russian (they speak very quickly!), and also it doesn't matter so much if you speak and make mistakes. When you speak English to a foreigner you'd rather him speaking quickly and make mistakes than him speaking VERY slowly (*) without mistakes...
2. The dialogues (apart from the short texts at the end of some of the chapters) are not spoken at normal Russian speed. So, if the CDs are your only source of spoken Russian, you re gonna be in for a bit of a shock when you go there. So I think it is worth getting other CDs, in which Russian is spoken at normal speed. That being said, it is better when we start learning to have dialogues being spoken slowly.

(*) It is a mistake to speak and try think/search in our memory for 10 seconds or so what the correct declinson is.

Format: Paperback
this is a great book to use as i have gone from knowing next to nothing of the grammar to as much as GCSE in just short of a year and i am only on unit 14 however if you dont learn the vocab with each unit plus loads of preliminary vocab the course will seem impossible. i suggest that this book is for beginners only if they have learnt another language and know about techniques. if you are new to language learning then this book is not for you. get a get started in ty book or a michel thomas set (or if you have money rosetta stone)

In my view this is an update of Teach Yourself Russian by Daphne West first published in 1995 (I think). However the content has been improved considerably and I prefer to use this current version for revision. I would strongly recommend this book to beginners.
