5.0 out of 5 stars Language for beginners 16 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can see why they have up-dated this version from the previous one; it is much clearer and the tape recordings go at a natural speed which may seem daunting at first but with "due diligence" it allows one to gain confidence. The grammar sections have also been revised and are more helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable - still 7 Aug 2005
It may be over thirty years old, but this book still stands out as one of the best Russian textbooks available. An invaluable tool for all levels of Russian, I found it most useful as a revision aid for my A level exams, and a useful preparation for degree level Russian. Designed to bring students up to the level of the old A level, it deals methodically and comprehensively with all aspects of the Russian language, and its exercises allow practice in what has been learnt, encompassing the grammar and vocabulary of the past few chapters. Be aware, however, that it does proceed at quite a pace, and regular, dedicated study is needed, that allows for revision and repetition (the only real way to learn a language). Even if you just sit down with it for twenty minutes a day, you will benefit. Alternatively, look up the topic you want to revise, go to the appropriate lesson, and marvel at the easy lay-out and thorough threatment dedicated to Russian grammar. If you're keen and you're eager to learn, further or improve your Russian, I seriously recommend this book. Go to the extra lengths to get hold of a copy: you won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars good book. few typos 19 Jan 2012
I am a first year Modern Languages student leaning Russian. It's a good book as it splits things up well into chapters and has good exercises at the end of the chapters. it's very clear and well laid out too. It does have a fair few typos (about 2 per chapter i'd say). These are mostly where the accent is missing

Great value for an excellent resource for learners of Russian. Adds some basic culture elements, too, and is a formidable resource on my university course. Really pleased to be using it, but had to borrow the CD off a mate because I didn't realise this wasn't included beforehand. Awesome book, though!
