This book is a good review of grammar. It is for people who have already learned it once and just need a review. Otherwise, for a beginner, it moves too quickly with too little explanation.

Format: Paperback
I had to purchase this book for my college level Italian 3 course. I did not like this book at all. There were terms in the book that had no definitions! I still can't believe there weren't clear definitions for terms used in the book like 'avercela' and 'farcela.' Luckily for me, my professor hated the book just as much and already knew just how horrible it was. She knew that she'd have to spend extra time defining terms that should have been defined in the book. The book does not have an answer key. Of course we would correct our homework in class, but I like to use answer keys see if I'm doing my work correctly. I also use the answer key as a point of reference when I'm studying. Overall, I'm not pleased with the book.
