I bought this book several years back. The grammar that was in it was very basic and was not always helpful in understanding how to use Russian grammar properly. But if you are just starting out and you only have room to fit it in your pocket, then I'd say go ahead. But I would recommend a more comprehensive grammar book for those who want to speak a little more clearly.

One shouldn't mistake this book for what it's not. This is a compact-sized reference guide to all of the basics of Russian grammar (plus some other subjects such as pronunciation, idioms, the use of ty vs. vy when addressing someone, and numbers). It's not meant to be the be-all and end-all guide of Russian language instruction; unless you're supplementing this with lessons or with another more thorough book on the language, you're not going to become fluent in Russian by a long shot. It plays the type of role a foreign language dictionary does; sure it contains a lot of information and basics, but you can't do anything with it if it's your only instructional volume.

Grammatical topics covered include when to use which case (nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, instrumental, and prepositional), the declensions themselves (which really aren't that hard to master once you've learnt the basic forms), word order, the different types of adjectives (e.g., superlative, interrogative, demonstrative, descriptive), the different types of pronouns (e.g., intensive, negative, indefinite, reflexive), forming imperative and conditional verbs, adverbs, basic verb conjugation, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections, telling time, and talking about the weather. Overall, it's a great compact resource, and in addition to being used in conjunction with a Russian class, can also be used in preparation for starting a Russian class or to brush up on one's Russian after not having used it for awhile.

This book is small, yet concentrated. I greatly appreciate that it starts with the alphabet and pronunciation, then immediately proceeds to lay out all the essential grammar rules in an organized way. Vocabulary is presented little by little but I like that the book doesn't try to smash in tons of vocabulary, since after all that's not the purpose of this book. I think it does a good job of laying out a lot of important things that many language books don't bother to do. Grammar is absolutely essential! It's easy to fit in a large pocket or small purse.

As I plan to study Russian next year, I wanted to have two sets of verb tables: one comprehensive and one suitable for taking to class. This fits the latter bill.

This book is an excellent quick reference on Russian grammar. The information is very well organized and concise (including very useful tables of all the case endings in the back), so it's easy to find what you need very quickly. In conjunction with an English-Russian, Russian-English dictionary I can have conversations over ICQ in Russian for practice. I wish Barron's would publish these books for more languages. They are excellent for learning the language or if you're just curious about how the grammar works.
