The software treats the info tables as illustrations so they stay teeny-weeny even when you increase the font size rendering the product utterly useless. They must have been aware of this defficiency but still marketed it anyway, knowing full-well that people would be wasting their money. Bad bad bad. Doesn't even deserve one star. Awful.

I specifically looked for the Spanish for DUMMIES book as I had bought a previous book from this series and found it extremely straightforward to read and very accessible. The book is clearly written, clearly states what you'll learn and the contents page is clearly set out so you're able to access what you want quickly.

My son is learning Spanish at school and I wanted to be able to support him, even if it's just him correcting me. I knew this would be the book for me, not complicated, pronunciation is given in brackets which for me, makes the learning even easier and I don't find the material overwhelming. I haven't played the accompanying CD yet so unable to comment on that.

I would certainly recommend this book definitely for the beginner or anyone looking for quick reference material. Happy learning.

I didn't expect the book so be so thick and long but that's an advantage anyway. Looked through the book it's brilliant, easy to learn simple words and phrases and it also shows you how to pronounce the words too. it will work for you if you have just started or if you're already average in the language, it also gives handy tips too. I find myself looking through this book at least once a day and I have learned a lot already, definitely worth my money and would recommend it to anyone!
