Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz German Grammar Handbook (Berlitz Guides) (German Edition)?
Very clear and practical to use. Nov 16, 2005
As a German language student, this book has become really useful to me. The index is very easy to use, and it contains all the explanations that you might need in the process of learning a language, yet the book is written in easy English and it gives clear examples of their explanations, which makes the book ideal for beginners as well as advanced students. I strongly recommend it!
Something for Everyone Mar 16, 2005
Bravo to Berlitz for having produced a one-stop comprehensive source of information on the German language. I find Berlitz German Grammar Handbook to be invaluable in its depth, clarity and precision in explaining and deciphering often incredibily difficult concepts in German. This handbook can be used either as a strict grammar reference or to acquire a general or specific understanding of most aspects of German grammar. It may also be used as one of several means of acquiring a working knowledge of the `syntax' of the language. Syntax means `word order' or how words fit together to convey meaning. I find the handbook to be quite good at demonstrating common everyday syntax in a simple fashion by means of the direct examples it provides. Fortunately, this grammar handbook does not assume that you know the meanings of different grammatical terms. It contains abundant explanations for each specific point of German grammar and there are always complete explanations provided for all grammatical terms. The way in which the classic grammatical term and explanation is followed immediately by a practical example of everyday use is one of Berlitz Grammar Handbook's greatest strengths. Another major plus to this grammar handbook is the huge number of practical and authentic mini-monologues which utilize different points of grammar in actual real-life contexts to illustrate a point of grammar as it's really spoken. It is obvious that Bertlitz intended this manual for individuals who actually wish to `use' their German in real life situations. The handbook also makes clear which constructions are only for formal and not everyday use. Overall, I recommend Berlitz German Grammar Handbook as a very good reference guide and learning tool for German. With Berlitz German Grammar Handbook you will be satisfied whether your are a complete novice or a language expert. It literally has something for everyone.

Very Nicely Done Jan 21, 2003
As with most Berlitz products, this title is very nicely done with attractive style (without becoming cluttered and distracting looking as so many modern textbooks seem to do) and workable layout. The content is complete and intelligently presented. I have several German grammars, but this is the pleasantest to use and the nicest of them all.
