With the benefit of hindsight, I remember someone else commenting on this - but the exercises in the book are inextricably linked with the CD, so it's pretty pointless buying the book by itself (and to make the mistake of buying the book and CD separately works out a lot more expensive). It would be nice if the blurb spelt this out a bit more clearly!

This book was recommended for my beginners Spanish course and is excellent, I just wish I had realised how much is linked to the accompanying CD. You really need to buy the two together as a package because the CD on its own is quite hard to get hold of.

Discovered this book after attempting to enroll in evening classes at the local college.

Course was over subscribed but did at least discover it was based around the content of this book.

Originally purchased the kit with the audio CD, which is essential if you will be self studying, I bought a second copy of the book to keep at work to read during lunchtimes.

Lessons are broken down into 2 or 3 page exercises, and cover the language and Spanish life, culture and occasions.

Its fairly classic school language text book stuff, so don't expect and revolutionary learning methods being employed. However I find the short 2 or 3 page chunks perfect - and with the exercises can be completed in 20 mins or so.

Spanish access a first language course- Publishers.... Could do better!

I read all the reviews of this book before I bought it as there was a lot of confusion about whether the Cds were included or not.
Needless to say you have to make sure you are buying the Cds as well because otherwise it is useless without them There is also a little answer book that comes with the pack which again is very useful. I did not realise what the answer book was until the teacher pointed it out
The positive side is that is does build your knowledge of Spanish and has a lot of revision. You do however need to do it alongside the Cd and the answer book. I am following the course in an evening class with an excellent Spanish teacher (she is in fact from Columbia) who takes us through the exercises. This is the recommended text
I realise that these days publishers assume we cannot read great wads of text so the book is broken up a lot with various pictures side bars etc. It makes is easy to read but not always easy to find things that you want. It can be distracting as here is so much of it. Also the numbers of the tracks on the Cds are not put in the text so I have to cast around to find it which is annoying.
I try each week because it is relatively easy to do to go through the book by just reading so that I reinforce all the vocabulary before each week's new lesson.
Fortunately I am going to classes as I am not bright enough to learn a language from a book or via CDs or DVDs. I also look at a lot of other material on the internet
As an aside the best our The Spanish Blog and LA Vida Loca which is on the BBC website. Also there are loads or word quizzes on the internet.

This item was advertised as a book with CD's. The book minus the CD's arrived and after contacting Amazon I was informed that the advert was incorrect. Obviously I was disappointed not to receive the CD's but as the book is the text book for the course I am attending I decided to keep it. After speaking to Amazon the advert was then changed but I don't know how many other people have been affected.

Disappointing I only know this on kindle. It only shows you how it looks like as if in a book, you can't use the features when it says touch this or move word etc. The interactive part is not usable on kindle. The book looks great and very well laid and I have kept the app but is not worth the money as it is.

Book is very good. Disappointed that product description was Access Spanish: CD Complete Pack: A first language course book. However it did not come with a CD. When I queried this I was sent a replacement which was exactly the same - no CD! Think the on line description should be changed as it is misleading.

I am currently taking Spanish lessons and have used this book so much, I have used a lot of the vocabulary provided by this book in my Spanish lessons. This book provides you with a lot of useful vocabulary in Spanish to use. This book will help take you up to GCSE level but book 2 will take you up to a higher GCSE level. I would recommend this Spanish book to Spanish learners. It is not possible to obtain audio files, transcripts or answer booklets online for free for this book. There is, however, a special complete pack which includes CDs and a booklet with the transcripts and answers in
