I used this book and CD as a supplement to an online course I am taking. This isn't a bad book for me in this context. I do think it could be a little tough for someone without some background in a Germanic language or if it were used as the only text. The Discovery Method is a good idea, but they do take it a bit far at times. The glossary is really inadequate, and I find myself using a dictionary more often than not to find words. (I use the Hippocrene Practical Dictionary, which is a pretty solid beginner's reference.) Some exercises ask for answers using constructions that haven't been covered yet, and there are mistakes in the book that I caught which could have been easily avoided with a solid proofread. I hope that future editions clean up some of the sloppy design of the book Overall, not bad for a seasoned learner and the CD is useful for pronunciation, but I am glad I am not a newbie learning Swedish solely from this text.
