12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Emyr Pugh on 9 May 2003
Format: Paperback
This book contains a 2000 word list arranged by frequency, this is a great idea for expanding your Arabic vocabulary. Its nicely divided into 100 units of 20 words each, and is a great tool for directed vocabulary expansion. The reason i chose to award only three stars is due to the fact that all the spellings are romanised (i.e. not in the Arabic script), which is a baffling decision on the part of the authors. It is clearly a work aimed at students who are aiming at mastery of the Arabic language, and those are exactly the kind of students who most need the original Arabic spellings. Use of romanised spellings is usually reserved for those books aimed at tourists or people travelling abroad on business, and therefore do not have the time to learn complicated scripts. The Romanisation doesnt distinguish between emphatic letters, and so constant recourse to a dictionary is required to attain the correct spelling for the new words you are learning, which is very frustrating. However, bearing the above in mind, it is an inexpensive and useful aid in expanding your vocabulary.

Almost Excellent learning resource 24 Sept. 2004
By H. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this if you are serious about learning the language -- or one of the other languages in the series.

Caveat: This Arabic volume uses not only transliteration but one of the WORST transliteration schemes ever devised (e.g., treating d-D, h-H, t-T, ain-hemza, th-TH, s-S as one letter each). -MINUS ONE STAR

The series is also expensive since it must be ordered-shipped from Europe. -MINUS another STAR

BUT, I typed them into the free Pauker flashcards (SourceForge.Net) and then learn(ed) the most common 2000 words in the language -- along with my OTHER studies in the language this really speeds up comprehension.

Too good to pass up though.

Not what is promised. 9 Feb. 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is terrible. Not in Arabic, only English transliterations. Not key words, simply 100 Units of 20 unrelated words. No sentences to show how words are used. A waste of time and money.
