Customer Reviews

I ordered this book for my university German courses.
Cynthia D McPeters
Provides exercises for basic grammar though the accompanying text book is lacking and doesn't do a very good job explaining the grammar.
David Mou
Not very useful if you are working at your desk and have to go off to the computer to check each answer.

What I like about this book:

This is a mid-level German grammar - that is, it assumes some knowledge, but essentially begins again from the beginning. It is appealingly laid out. The summaries at the end of the chapter capture the information well, the vocabulary sections help differentiate several similar words, and it often has some incidental insights that other books do not offer. Eg: on p.331 "In present time, the indicative is used instead of the subjunctive if in the speaker's view, the impression is the correct one. - Er sieht aus, als ob er krank *ist*." I have not seen this comment in any other text. Similarly, p.87 "Für can be used to indicate duration, but only when the time element is unrelated to the main verb." Exactly right, and I have found no other book that explains this correctly. As a mid-level comparative German-English grammar it does well enough.

What I dislike about this book:

The exercises at the end of each chapter are fairly pedestrian - they are simple form exercises, have neither interesting content nor hidden tricks that teach you things not directly related to the supposed point of the exercise. If interesting content in exercises is what you are after, then Practising German Grammar has much more inspiring tasks and texts. If you want exercises that go beyond simple form practice, have a look at Sag's Besser. The answers are also not included in the book, which is a real menace for self-directed learners. Nor are they sold separately, but are gained via access to a website that you have to pay for.

This is the workbook that I used extensively when studying for the AP German Language exam in high school. It does a great job at challenging the student to learn the material presented in the book and helps the student practice and build confidence. Having passed swimmingly, this book must have done something right.

I've been using the Handbuch all year for German at the college level. It has proven to be the most helpful book i've ever owned! I have been in German for five years and have yet to find a book that makes it easier to absorb the information or navigate. Even if you do not need this for class, buy it. German grammar becomes increasingly difficult as you get to the higher levels.

Format: Kindle Edition
There are countless extra spaces inserted in words throughout the book, often more than once in the same word. When there are tables (e.g. verb conjugations) words are often started in the wrong column, then finished in the correct column. Unexcusable in a book this expensive.

BE AWARE that this is for the Fourth Edition "Arbeitsheft" or work notebook.

The Amazon item heading fails to notate this, and in certain instances the picture also loads incorrectly.

This is not for the fourth edition of the whole manual.

Caveat emptor.

I ordered this book for my university German courses. It provides an excellent resource for German grammar. A teacher, though, is also helpful for further explanation.
