Format: Paperback
I am a second year spanish student and find this book very helpful for my course. It provides explanations and examples so you can understand what is being taught, also providing practise. It also provides answers in the back as sort of a guideline for you to doublecheck your answers to make sure you are on the right track.
Also there are notes telling you about the differences in meanings of certains words in Latin America and Spain.
Buying this book was definitely a big plus for me...

I give the book five stars because I genuinely like it. It is very clear, and the way in which it builds your vocabulary through exercise and repetition is highly effective.This is not a book for beginners. You already need a basic grasp of Spanish and of its grammar, in order to be able to use it.However it is not a complicated book.
If you already know some Spanish, you will be able to use it effectively without the need of a teacher, and it will certainly go some way in improving your vocabulary.
Unfortunately it does not seem to be as comprehensive as some of its sister volumes (Schaums Vocabulary Outlines in French, Italian, Russian and German).These other volumes are a bit thicker and seem to contain more word and expressions.
That being said, this is still an excellent book.

The book arrived on time but was not in the condition as described: the pages were slightly discoloured but the main problem was that there were many pages where exercises had been filled in and underlinings and notes were made using biro. I usually photocopy the vocabulary lists so that I can learn them while travelling, so having someone else's notes on them is far from ideal. The book itself cost very little, the main cost being the postage, but I would be wary of using this seller again given the misleading report of the condition of the book.

Indispensible resource for studying Spanish 27 Sept. 2001
By Rocco B. Rubino - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had 4 years of high school Spanish back in the 1970's, and I recently made the decision to brush up on what I have learned in an effort to further my studies, with the goal of becomming fluent.
I have examined a number of resources in order to determine the most efficient and logical way to build a vocabulary. None of these has come close to Shaum's Outline of Spanish Vocabulary.
The book is divided into chapters that provide vocabulary for everyday usage, as well as in what appropriate context to use each word.
If you are serious about learning Spanish, and are highly self-motivated, this book will put you well on your way to mastering this lovely language. Thanks to this book, and Schaums Outline of Spanish Grammar, I fully expect to be at an intemediate level in Spanish within six months.
A must have whether you are studying independently, or as part of a class.

Excelente- me parece muy bueno para los estudiantes 2 Mar. 2003
By Marianopolita2005 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful workbook for Intermediate level Spanish students who wish to instantly build their vocabulary. The learning approach is thematic, meaning each chapter focuses on vocabulary pertinent to a theme such as: At the airport (En el aeropuerto), On the airplane (En el avión) or At the train station (En la estación de ferrocarril) to name a few. The book provides ample practice exercises, with an answer key at the back of the book and what I found really valuable was each chapter has a mini paragraph about the theme in question that incorporates the vocabulary taught in the lesson. The workbook will definitely help the student to expand his/ her vocabulary because the chapters encompass everyday themes thus detailing everyday vocabulary. I feel it's more for an Intermediate level student because one would have to have a solid base to benefit from the new material presented in the chapters without feeling frustrated and also have beyond beginner reading and comprehension skills. This is a good supplementary study aid to classroom lessons or independent study.

Excellent Resource Material 13 Nov. 2006
By Veronica - Published on
Format: Paperback
The content and structure of the each lesson presented in this book are superb. Answers to all exercises are also presented at the back of the book and this is excellent for students and independent learners who desire to test their understanding of the the materials presented upon completion of the excercises. This book is just great both learning and revision whether you are in school or just an independent learner.

It not just a list of words, the book provides the context within which the words are used, present them in a way that enhances memorization and correct usage of the various words, provides information on word usage to convey similiar ideas in different parts of the spanish speaking world (constant reminder that there are some differences in in common words usage in some Latin American countries and Spain. The listing of the vocabulary is given at the ends of each excercise.

This book is just excellent and a must have for spanish students!!!
Great for high-beginner to high-intermediate students of Spanish 19 May 2009
By Andrea N. - Published on
Format: Paperback
There are certain words you just do not typically learn as a beginner in Spanish. Once you do have that "basic" foundation though, this book can help you expand your knowledge and be able to have more confidence talking and reading about 30 different topics. This book is full of exercises as well which is great because you can practice what you learn. I was not very sure how helpful this book would be as I had already studied Spanish (well, it was on and off) for a year and 10 months, and the topics seemed like they would be easy to talk about, like things around the home, in the restaurant, crime, sports, travel, etc, but after going through the book I realized how much I actually did not know and how much the book helped me. There are few things that I did not find helpful (but the only chapter I felt I was wasting my time doing was the last one about politics and government because 1)It was mostly about stuff in the United States, and 2)I am not very interested in the subject matter and cannot see myself having conversations about it.) Answers are in the back which is nice and the book is very affordable. There were few errors (a few times they forgot to include answers to a couple of questions in the back or they accidentally gave the answers of question #10 as the answers of question #8 and vice versa.) Few typing errors. None of this really matters that much, as it does not really interfere with learning. They are just little things that I notice.

Anyway, I think for anyone (at the high-beginner to high-intermediate level) learning Spanish would find this book definitely worth their money and time.
great but a little outdated 28 Dec. 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I want to give this book a 5, but due to the material being a little old I just couldn't. It is a great book. Tons of vocab and very helpful. I like the way it is chaptered, and each chapter is basically a review of any and all words associated with the subject. The chapter for example, at the hotel, uses tons of hotel vocab in a format of you fill in the correct word: after you've learned it. It's a great way to teach yourself, and my private Spanish tutor uses it too! Good book for intermediates but could work for all levels except for the real beginners.
