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.
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.
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.
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.

NOT for beginners of Polish - I showed it to one of my Polish pharmacist friends who admitted it was very difficult to fathom. Interesting for the information thoughPublished 14 months ago by How many Cats
Every form of a Polish verb is shown,but could do with more examples of the verb in use and perhaps a longer list than the 301 verbs in the book.Published 18 months ago by A S.
It's a good book to use as a reference when learning Polish. It won't teach you everything about verbs, but it covers the structure pretty well. Read morePublished on 8 Dec. 2013 by Michael
