3.0 out of 5 stars Not for older Kindles, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Practice Makes Perfect Complete Spanish Grammar 2/E (ENHANCED EBOOK) (Kindle Edition with Audio/Video)
As a practice book I would give this one 5 stars but only for the physical book not for the Kindle edition. I use an older keyboard Kindle in my Spanish language studies and while certain books lend themselves very well to this medium others, like the Practice makes Perfect series, are not designed for electronic media, one has to complete the examples given on the page and so cannot be used to their full potential. This particular book, (I have the previous physical version) needs computer access to realise its usability, and even then in only a limited way, whether this is available on the newer Kindles like the Paperwhite or Kindle Fire with their additional functionality I cannot say. Basicilly the Practice makes Perfect series are excellent learning aids but one needs to have the physical page in order to fill in the set examples which is not possible for my Kindle, the tables used are reproduced at a very small typeface and constantly adjusting this is laborious,as I say, the feature sets of the newer devices may be different but I did not find the Kindle edition useful. Of course, this being Amazon, you have the excellent option of returning the book within a set time which I always find extremely useful so just try it and see, if you have a newer device it may work splendidly, older ones though will struggle.
