This book is great, I started learning Spanish two months ago as a complete beginner, I purchased this book along with Basic Spanish and Pronouns and Prepositions.

I went through Basic Spanish in 2 weeks and then delved into verb tenses. I have to say I love these exercises, it is really interesting and encourage you to continue without making you feel bored. I finished this book today with 1.5 month of daily effort.

English is not my first Language so I know how boring learning grammar could have been. I wasted so many times before trying to understand these English verb tenses. But when using this book, everything is just naturally falling into its category with the great explanation and exercise provided by the author(of course, some of them is quite similar to english, so it saved my time)

I'm not go for a grammar expert in spanish, so a clear explanation of the commonly seen verb structures like "se puede" is my expectation. Right now, I think Spanish Verb Tenses did a fantastic job

Only suggestion for this book, I wish there's review sections and exercises in the book covering different chapters, because the exercise under its own chapter title makes me little bit lazy to think about the tense deeper, I just have to use the one indicated by the chapter title.

(Another thing I'd like to mention is that the conjugation of Spanish verb is much more complex than English since it's directly from Latin, while English is not. So at first you might be little bit scared, but believe me, it is really nothing.

This is by far the best investment I've made in my Spanish learning career. This book has helped me understand so much more than anything I've ever had. Visual learning is a good start, but when you get down to the knitty gritty of things, you realize that you are going to have to know how to form sentences on your own if you ever plan on getting anywhere. This book is marked for beginner to intermediate and that seems about right.

This is by far the best spanish workbook I have ever used. It gradually exposes the reader to vocabulary while keeping it's focus on grammar. I love the way it describes "rules" that I never could get before. I have studied Spanish for a long time, and this book helped clarify somethings to me that I didn't learn in the classroom. To anyone who has self-motivation, I would highly recommend this book.

I took two years of Spanish in high school nearly 50 years ago. I can converse in simple present tense with a limited vocabulary. I am trying to get so that I can converse and understand in most situations. It also requires that you write a paragraph in each section which helps immensely in reinforcing what you have learned. This book replaces one I had been using that I was not that happy with. I am finding this is much better structured and I can progress quickly. They say you can't learn at 65 but with this book I am making great progress. Has anyone seen my car keys?

I grew up in a spanish-speaking home and even lived in Mexico for a year when I was a child.
These experiences gave me a solid foundation for SPEAKING spanish, which is where many
people struggle. However, I never had to study spanish on an academic level when I was
in school. Now that I am an adult and understand the remarkable blessing of having spanish
in my background, I wanted to become genuinely fluent. Reading, writing, speaking and listening.

I've used 2 outstanding products to build my academic foundation: Speak in a Week - Spanish
Speak in a Week!: See, Hear, Say & Learn Spanish: 4 week Set (Spanish Edition)
which is FAR AND AWAY THE SINGLE BEST SPANISH RESOURSE EVER CREATED. This is where I refer everyone
wanting to taste spanish for the first time. Great for beginners.

Secondly, though it took me almost 2 years to get through it, I credit Spanish Made Simple for
building a solid and more comprehensive foundation for my spanish.Spanish Made Simple: Revised and Updated (Please remember that I study spanish for fun on the side - I have a life, a job, and a family) This resource is great if you have access to a friend/family member who is fluent in spanish. It's great and I've gone through every single page.

However, I now wanted to zero in on the nitty-gritty of the details in spanish.

I love all the spanish grammar books in this series. They are well written and extremely helpful. This is the first time I bought a book like this in the Kindle Ebook Version. The problem I had as I was going through the exercises was that there were no links from the exercises to the answer key. In order to check my answers I had to go back to the beginning of the book and find the table of contents. Then, I had to find the answer key. Then, I had to page my way through the answer key until I made my way to the right exercise. And there are a lot of exercises in this book. It was very frustrating. This would not have been so bad if the book I had purchased was the paperback version. But the ebook makes it challenging. I will not buy another e-book text like this until I know that they have included the links from the exercises to the answer keys.
