I used this text in my Russian conversation class which ended up being intermediate Russian, which this book really shines at teaching. It starts off rather brisk but the chapters are formed well and everything is very informative. The examples are challenging, especially if you had only had basic Russian language courses, but well worth it. I definitely learned a lot because of this book and its Activities Manual.

I used this textbook in a 3rd semester Russian class. I was quite disappointed by Golosa and Nachalo -- they seemed to lack reasonable coherence and organization. The descriptions in V Puti are concise, well-written, helpful, and well-organized. You might want to read the table of contents, skip ahead, and find some neat constructs if your class has a composition component.

Also recommended: Schaum's Outlines of Russian Grammar and Katzner Russian dictionary.

If you really intend to become fluent, this is a necessary text.

Schaums Outline is great, but this gives so much profound nuance, is great concise form. Pity that I already bought the awful 'Troika.'

Academia seems to dumb down teaching languages, so student must pay for more courses. Why else would academe push such trash, as Troika?

First of all it came quickly !
I just had a look at the first chapter.It certainly increased my vocabulary...I presume the other chapters will do the same.
I am looking forward to seriously study and work with this Grammar in Context.Expensive but worth it.

This textbook is much more helpful than others of its type. It provides much more practical instruction relevant to a general audience, whereas so many other college textbooks are almost exclusively geared toward academic life.

Excellent text at an intermediate level. Introduces contemporary language needed for basic conversations about activities of everyday life. Gives some background on Russian culture and history.

The book got here fast and I love the bargain on renting it seeing as I will never use it after this class.

Our teacher is currently supplementing almost every lesson since the explanations and examples are poorly clarified too frequently to be excused.

My guess is if your here you have no choice but to buy it, just think about ditching it the second your done with the course.
