If you're interested in getting to grips with Arabic grammar this is your book. It's all here. Don't waste your time with other books that are a.) more expensive and more confusing or b.) simplistic and frustratingly incomplete.
This book does look like a sea of tables/charts but if you spend a little time figuring them out and memorizing relevant facts it will enormously help your language.

This is probably the best Arabic Grammar reference book in the English language. I have bought almost every single Arabic Grammar book available in the English language and in my opinion this is the best. It is very clear, concise and straight to the point. It is better organised than Haywood and often uses clearer and relevant examples.

This is a good book providing you have a good basic to intermediate knowledge of Arabic. There are no transiliterations. There are examples but they require knowledge of Arabic at an Intermediate level, rather than a beginner level. If you are looking for a book with full translations of the verb forms, this is not the book for you. That said, if you know how the verbs work, from the verb stem, and you know the case system, the 'problem' verbs ( the so called 'weak' verb stems, quadrilateral verbs, hollow verbs etc) then this is a very good book. It is not just about verbs, of course, nouns, adverbs, prepositions, instruments are all here. The book has it all. But, I would caution against buying it if you do not first have a good basic understanding of Arabic or you are starting a serious study course in Arabic that will take you into an Intermediate stage at a college or University.

Complete and easy to follow, a good helping hand for a university student of Arabic.
