Customer Review

on 7 August 2005
It may be over thirty years old, but this book still stands out as one of the best Russian textbooks available. An invaluable tool for all levels of Russian, I found it most useful as a revision aid for my A level exams, and a useful preparation for degree level Russian. Designed to bring students up to the level of the old A level, it deals methodically and comprehensively with all aspects of the Russian language, and its exercises allow practice in what has been learnt, encompassing the grammar and vocabulary of the past few chapters. Be aware, however, that it does proceed at quite a pace, and regular, dedicated study is needed, that allows for revision and repetition (the only real way to learn a language). Even if you just sit down with it for twenty minutes a day, you will benefit. Alternatively, look up the topic you want to revise, go to the appropriate lesson, and marvel at the easy lay-out and thorough threatment dedicated to Russian grammar. If you're keen and you're eager to learn, further or improve your Russian, I seriously recommend this book. Go to the extra lengths to get hold of a copy: you won't be disappointed!
