I have taken two semesters of college German using this book and so far, pretty good!
Mark Meyer
This book, I think, gives the reader every possible advantage in terms of learning the language, I think.

Again, it's just amazing that a book would cost so much and not contain something like this.

There's really no point to owning this book if you're enrolled in a German class, and there's absolutely no reason for a self-learner to pick this up otherwise. There's a lot of people who say this book "is great if you're in a class / using video / using audio / great teacher / etc etc..." and the truth is, when you have that much enrichment anyway, you don't need a very good book (which is the only time when using this book is acceptable). And the "listening comprehension" CD? It's much more useful as a coaster. A coaster that might cost you a whole paycheck.

Gripes:

-Never provides ANY blocks of words/pronunciations in chapters (even when it does, it tends to have whole phrases translated, not word-by-word breakdowns like you need, especially in the beginning). You have to learn 90% of your words on your own, and then try to figure out what's going on in the book based on your own knowledge. This is an almost absurd problem considering the price.

-Randomly tosses around different dialects of German with little division. Without a professor keeping you informed, you might not even notice some of the differences. My fiancee was dismayed to learn that I wasn't learning the same dialect that she knows (and her dialect is High German, which is the one you're "supposed" to learn in an introductory class). I think I'm learning a more Southern or Austrian dialect. Is that the book's fault or my professor's? Since the book doesn't help, I have absolutely no clue!

-The CD is truly worthless. It barely follows the book, and doesn't provide ANY quick access to any necessary elements.

I am currently enroled in begining German. This book is not the kind of book you can teach yourself from. You need lots of help along the way - which is fine. But the book does not stand on it's own. Also - the labs were horrible. I think you can do better for the money.

I have taken two semesters of college German using this book and so far, pretty good! We are in Kapitel 7 right now. I like the pictures and the realia. But I feel it gives enough grammar, too. The explanations are really clear. The accompanying materials are good, too.
Unfortunately, I don't think it is a self-teaching book. It really demands a classroom, and a TV/VCR. Though it is expensive, it is worth it!

Deutsch Na Klar is an excellent book that covers the course of beginning German. I have used the book in my study of German, and it uses many examples, exercises, charts, appendxes, and one on one conversation practices. It includes cultural information on Germany. It also comes equipped with a full- lenth vocabulary index, whcih allows you to jump back and look up anything you don ont know. This book is highly recommended and complete in itself for German.
