Does what it says on the cover,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 301 Polish Verbs: Fully Conjugated in All the Tenses (Barron's) (Paperback)
This book does what it says on the cover - it is conjugations of 301 Polish verbs. If that is what you want it is the book for you. However, two health warnings: 1) the book is physically quite heavy (not as bad as a hard back, but no pocket edition either). As I don't have a car, it's my at home on the shelf reference book, rather than anything I take to my Polish classes with me. 2) Despite its size, it won't necssarily cover all the verbs you are interested in as thoroughly as you might hope. As a complete beginner back when I bought it, I was expecting every verb I came across in class (at least in the first few years) to be in there - it wasn't. The book could also do with a few more notes about which of the verbs it covers in its examples at the bottom of the page (rather than the verbs that get covered in full in the main body of the page) are imperfective and which are perfective, and what the paired verb is, if any.
Having said all that, this is the only Polish verb conjugation book I'm aware of on the market and it's perfectly clear about the verbs it covers in full. It even has grammar exercises (albeit ones it took me at least four years of Polish classes to be able to fill in). I just don't want readers to get over-excited about how wonderful it is before buying (based on the other reviews). It does have its limitations. But, if conjugations are what you're looking for, unless someone brings out a better book, this is the one for you. Overall, I would say it is well worth the money I paid for it.
