Reviews - What do customers think about Essential German Grammar?

Good Stuff  May 2, 2008
This book has helped me understand a lot of the intricacies of the German language. Based on that I would say it is a very worthy purchase for one to have. But, it is not a book written for those who are not fluent on grammatical technical terms. I found myself a little lost at times, when the author would very non-challantly explain that something was just a matter of the "subjunctive predicative to the second power of the reversed megablaster future tense"...I know, I'm just joking, but I'm sure some of the readers understand what I mean.
Having said that, I still say it is a good book for students of German such as myself. You'll just have to dust off your grammar lingo, that's all!
Small Book Packs a Punch.  Oct 6, 2007
This book is great for quick reference and study. It has all sorts of rules and charts for memorizing German Grammar. Small book, but lots of information.

Good Reference Book  Aug 28, 2007
Very good for help with writting and basic but complex phases. You know the ones we don't use. This and my German/English Dictionary sit together.
Clear and Concise.  Jan 10, 2007
I have been in the process of teaching myself German for the last few months. This is an excellent suppliment for comprehending the intricate ins and outs of German grammer. Sentances are provided with the litteral german-to-english tranlation as well as the intended meanting translation. I find this feature particularly helpful.

Examples are plentyful and explained very well. I believe it would be beneficial as a brush up or as a first time learner like myself. Worth the minor financial investment.
On the advanced side  Dec 25, 2006
I bought this book for my son who is trying to learn how to speak German. It looked like an informative book and, for the price, was worth it. I bought another beginners book and a CD to augment the "Essential German Grammar" book. This book looks like it will be VERY handy in the future but, for now, is a bit advanced. Inside it recommends that you have a significant German vocabulary before utilizing the book. I gave this book 5 stars because of the content and sentence structure instructions but I would NOT recommend this book as a sole guide for learning to speak German. Use it in addition with other instruction tools.
