Serbian-English English-Serbian Concise Dictionary&hellip by Mladen Davidovic
Obtaining a good quality Serbian-English dictionary is a real quest for the Holy Grail. This book was the only one I could find at short notice in the UK and it is, generaly speaking, a pretty poorly produced publication. As a short-term gap-filler it may be of some, very limited use, as itv is fairly scant on detail and grammar. However, students of the language intending to visit the country should be warned that locally available dictionaries are not exactly thick on the ground and choosing a good volume will take some time.
Teach Yourself Serbian Complete Course Package [Wi&hellip by Vladislava Ribnikar
I bought this book as a preparation to learning Serbian, having been seconded to work in that country. It is similar in format to other TY books and generally easy to follow. Grammar subjects are reasonably well covered, although I would recommend that the serious student acquires a specialist grammar as back-up. The book will suit anyone planning on spending a considerable time in the country. It should be borne in mind that resources for learning the language within Serbia itself are very limited and of dubious quality. For that reason alone I would recomend this book without reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good value product, 6 May 2010
I specifically ordered two albums to store old family photographs which recently came to light.
I received the albums within the specified delivery deadline. The product represents very good value for money. The acid free pages have no pockets, which enables complete freedom in choosing how to collate and display photographs. Pages are black - the ideal background for older monochrome photos.The overlays made from alkaline glue and polypropylene are simple to use and reliable. I would certainly revcommend this product, which is both well-made and attractive in appearance.
