This review is from: The Big Silver Book of Russian Verbs: 555 Fully Conjugated Verbs (Big Book of Verbs Series) (Paperback)
I opted for this above other Russian verb books because of the wealth of examples given under each verb entry. Not only are the verbs conjugated fully, but there are hundreds and hundreds of example sentences illustrated standard, colloquial and proverbial usage of them throughout the book. Fantastic for getting to grips with the true meaning of a verb rather than just learning its parts!
Also very useful is the 'top 50 verbs' feature - the most important / frequent 50 verbs in Russian are marked out and given two pages rather than one per verb, including lots more useful examples. Interesting to see which verbs are in the top 50, and useful for targetting your first studies at the verbs you'll use / come across most often!
555 verbs is enough to cover most of the verbs I've come across in my studies, and for those which aren't covered in full, there's a handy, more comprehesive cross-references index at the back.
