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.

It's what it says it is and more. Being able to quickly find the correct form of the verb that you need is of great convenience. Makes it easier to learn to communicate correctly without having to memorize all the patterns for conjugating verbs. The Polish language uses a myriad of variants for each verb in use, and there are approximately three patterns, with some differences within one of them.

Use this book to find the correct form, or use it to check that the form you've chosen is correct.

The index is great, both in English and Polish, and as a bonus you even get a substantial section of test with which you can check your own progress. I also like how the book gives several explanations of Polish grammar.

A useful resource, even if you also buy the Comprehensive Grammar by Iwona Sadowska. Its focus on making so many verbs available makes this book very useful in its own right.

This book conjugates all the main Polish verbs and is a brilliant short cut for those learning the language from scratch. Buy it 6 months into starting your Polish course. It will be an excellent reference book.

This is an excellent book that gives you all you could need concerning Polish verbs and their construction, especially once tied in with some lessons. I found it invaluable in accelerating my learning and gave me the tools to converse at a much better level than I would have been able to do otherwise. A must for aspiring Polish speakers!

This is one of the books that I carry EVERY day in my bag to help with my study (which I largely do on the train). It provides a very useful reference for a reasonable number of verbs, with the conjugation in present, past, future, conditional and imperative. There are examples at the bottom of each page showing the verbs in use. These examples are the only bit that I find disappointing about this book, as they could have been used to provide useful phrases as well as examples of conjugation. In reality, very few of the examples are likely to be used as phrases in their own right.

As it says, it conjugates 301 Polish verbs (one per page) in full detail - present, past, future, conditional, imperative and participles. This takes up most of each page. This is followed by a small amount of information about usage, a list of prefixed verbs derived from the original verb, and 4 example sentences using the verb.

It is always four examples, even for verbs which have lots of different prefixes with different meanings. More help with usage would be more useful than all the grammatical detail, much of which is predictable. For example, as far as I know, the conditional is always formed in the same way, so listing it in full is a waste of space.

Also, with prefixed verbs it does not tell you the imperfective form. So adding za- to imperfective robic (to do) gives perfective zarobic (to earn), but the book does not tell you the zarobic is perfective, or that the imperfective of zarobic is zarabiac. So although they claim to include nearly 2300 verbs, for most of them they only give one aspect, which is only half the story.

In addition, the way the verbs of motion are treated is confused. In the case of chodzic/isc, prefixed forms are shown for chodzic (so they are imperfective), but for jezdzic/jechac, they are shown for jechac (so are perfective) - none of this is explained, so a beginner could easily be misled.

If you are really struggling with verb forms, it is OK, but when I want to know how verbs are used, I find it is very little use.

Shame it doesn't write how to pronounce those words.
I have ordered it as a gift with a dedication. It came without it...
Book was slightly damaged on the corners however because is made of cheap recyclable paper it's acceptable.
