Format: Paperback
This book is essentially an intermediate grammar reference. It covers quite a lot of ground including verb forms, participles, cases, and particles. I have looked at a portion of the book from a number of different chapters and reckon I have seen enough to form an opinion.
The author approaches grammatical concepts in an accessible way for the layman self teacher, citing examples in English before delving into the Arabic. He gives exercises in each chapter, and answer keys are provided. Arabic vowelled script is used along with transliteration.
As a lower intermediate self-learner, I have found this book valuable. An excellent and inexpensive tool for those who have, for example, completed the Mastering Arabic series by Wightwick and Gaafar.

HASH(0x94388ea0) out of 5 stars Excellent for Self-Study! 15 Feb. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like this book. It has transliteration into English of all the Arabic, even in the exercises. This is good for me, since I never totally mastered the alphabet in my basic studies. It's organized into useful sections, treating the tricky grammatical topics I need to learn better. I've even laughed out loud at some of the humor he puts into the writing.

HASH(0x9369ef48) out of 5 stars Excellent/Outstanding 21 Mar. 2010
By N. Roufaiel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Excellent book for learning the Arabic language and this is coming from a person who is a native speaker of Egyptian dialect. I believe my children who aren't as solid in their Arabic will benefit from the grammatical explanations here.

HASH(0x9342345c) out of 5 stars Worth your money 15 Jan. 2013
By Susan H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a teacher of Arabic to adults, I offer this useful reference tool for my intermediate level students. I found the review of the basics (which I would expect someone to know by the intermediate level and yet is provided) to be useful and comprehensive. Explanations are clear, examples helpful, and exercises useful. At the intermediate level, though, transliteration is more of a distraction than benefit since students at this level should already know how to read. Nonetheless, a very good buy for your money.

By LB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a tremendous resource for anyone attempting to tackle Arabic grammar. The table of contents is very clear and it is easy to reference anything you need help with. This isn't a book for beginners, but it is simple enough to educate without intimidation. If you need a quick reference resource, this is a quality book!

HASH(0x933485e8) out of 5 stars Better than expected. 4 Oct. 2014
By Amazonteur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This intermediate level book for learning Arabic is surprisingly good! I'm brushing up on my Arabic and wanted to find some new resources. The easy-to-read nature of the grammatical descriptions are why I'm using this book compared to more technical and dense materials. The exercises spread throughout the chapters are invaluable.
