Customer Review

on March 25, 2011
I would not recommend this book to people who want to seriously understand biblical Hebrew. It is extremely confusing. The chapters are all over the place. Vocabulary is strewn everywhere. Grammatical points are poorly presented and hard to grasp let alone remember. I have never before in my life seen a grammar with such visual "noise". The eye simply doesn't know where to focus! Much older works like Davidson's Hebrew grammar are better because they give clearly delineated and unambiguous a) grammar; b) vocab; and c)translation exercises in that simple order (with a key). Dobson however fragments Hebrew grammar to such an extent that it is impossible to see the whole. Beware of teach yourself Hebrew books that promise you an easy way out of having to do hard work. Hebrew is a difficult language (especially at the beginning). I think in this particular case one should note that Dobson's book is not used in colleges or universities in the UK which offer Hebrew courses. There has to be a reason for this. I think I've given some reasons.
