This review is from: Beginner's Russian Book/CD Pack (Teach Yourself Languages) (Paperback)
For the price you pay it's quite good. It's well structured and the excercises are good to practice with. My only concern is that learning Russian means you have to learn and recognise the cyrillic letters of the alphabet. So at the beginning you need the grounding to learn this, but unfortunately there is no emphasis on this, so you start with a little excercises and then you are immersed into excerises of the next topic. The alphabet is paramount to learn this language, the author should have made a more solid program to the alphabet. Otherwise the rest of the book is enough to ground you into learning and speaking more.
