Really worthwhile if you are studying Spanish. Could do with brieh translations on each page as constant referral to the beginning is painstaking. Perhaps a card with tense translations that can be moved to the look-up page. terriffic value.

By Clare on 27 Sept. 2010
Format: Paperback
I was recommended this book by someone who teaches Spanish, she claimed to use it all the time. Having bought it, I can see why! It is really comprehensive verb guide, made more useful by highlighting those 'must know verbs'. Each page is headed by the name of the verb, and it's translation. All tenses of the verb are shown on the same page, clearly laid out, with some pages even having memory tips to help you remember what the verb is. My only critism is that the names of the different verb tenses on each page are offered in Spanish only, with no further description. There is a useful translated guide at the beginning of the book, and an explanation of what each verb tense does, however for those with a lesser grasp of the language, like me, it facilitates a need to keep flicking back and forth to the front of the book. However, once use of the language improves, I'm sure that problem will ease! This would be of great use to those studying towards A level etc

Great resource! 16 Jun. 2009
By Jedd M. Chesterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
excellent resource for people who are learning Spanish. Has descriptions of when to use each verb tense along with a translation. The book provides each of the 601 verbs in each of these forms to make sure that the language learner uses them correctly (in writing and speaking). As a Spanish teacher, i think that it is a straightfoward book that provides instant help for someone trying to improve their spanish skills.

Great for Beginners (More Advanced Speakers, look elsewhere) 15 Feb. 2011
By Asphyxia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Now, don't be gettin' all hot and bothered about my title of this review. When I first bought this book, I was a junior in high school. HANDS-DOWN it was invaluable for me during that time. I decided I would minor in Spanish in college, and in my first year of intermediate Spanish, it worked well. As we began working with more complex verb tenses and usages (that subjunctive always gets ya, am I right?), this book was still working out well for me.

Well, as I've now progressed to the most advanced intermediate Spanish course I can take before moving on to the next level, this book has not been helpful. I almost always have to look up unfamiliar verbs in my other Spanish-English dictionaries.

I still reference to this book because of the beginning portion. The first part of the book dedicates several pages to each verb tense, explaining the tense, giving examples of it, giving examples of when you would use it vs using this other tense ("In this case, use the imperfect subjunctive vs present perfect" as an example), etcetera. What a miracle that section is. It'll even give you great tips and acronyms and little memory tricks! The book also has some practice sections. Nowadays, I often find that beginning section a bit lacking... I guess it's just because as I progress into more complex situations and contexts, I require more complex and in-depth explanations.

Point is, if you are a beginner to low-intermediate student, I highly recommend this book. Beyond that, you won't find anything you don't already know, and you'll very likely find yourself looking for more. If you're just a high schooler who's serious about Spanish or just need to get Spanish out of the for your 2 year, get this book. If you're beyond that, look elsewhere.

CD IS ONLY FOR IPOD 16 Jun. 2011
By mattyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a verb conjugation reference, this book is fine.

But, the potential buyer should know that the CD which comes with this book is only for IPOD. If you have windows or android or anything other than an IPOD, you should consider this as a book with no CD, then think about the price relative to other books which DO have a useful CD.

I was disappointed, perplexed and angry at what I perceived to be a profoundly stupid management and marketing decision on the part of Berlitz. ...Not to mention PISSED that I spent this much on what is basically a dead-tree-only product :(

20% more Spanish than my sister!!!! 5 Mar. 2011
By Aaron Ximm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My sister and I are both trying to learn the main Spanish language and Hispanic words to speak with our parents "HELP" of various kinds and I was soooo jealous for a long long time about this book "501 Spanish Verbs." Well NO LONGER now I found the book for me and even though hers is some best seller SHE is the one that is jealous!. She knows at MOST 500 verbs which is enough I'm sure for simple instruction but the time is going to come I am sure that my extra ONE HUNDRED verbs are going to turn out to be the difference between LIVES LOST or at least a stain removed in a timely fashion or a child disciplined correctly! Seriously why would any educated person pay for a measly half thousand words to conjurate correctly when for only a few dollars more or NOT EVEN thanks to SECOND HAND THANK YOU AMAZON BOOKS dot COM you can have a whole extra hundred or more???? I would seriously give this SIX HUNDRED AND ONE stars if I could.
