But the other two indices have been a problem. In the paper book you can use the English Spanish verb index to look up English verbs, find the equivalent in Spanish and see where the conjugation is. Also you can use the 2,200 verb index to look up Spanish verbs not included in the 501 for a short definition and a similar 501 dictionary entry to help you conjugate it.
In the Kindle edition it's easy to use the Table of Contents to get to the first page of these indices. But to actually use them you would have to page through, page by page, until you found the word you want. There's no way to search for anything except the 501 verbs.
I got around this problem by creating a "Note" at the beginning of each letter in the two indices. When I want to look up an English verb, I "View Notes & Marks" and can page through quickly to the right area.
What the book really needs is two more searchable "dictionaries". I hope that if it's ever developed the upgrade will be available to us, the pioneer users.
Note: I've made my Notes public so you may be able to use them to access these indices with having to enter them yourself.
The included audio CD is a nice touch... it's useful for review and for jogging your memory (helpful to listen to in the car while driving to an exam, for example) but not as helpful for learning a new form.
Suggestion: you may wish to find a hardcover copy, because if you intend to use this book for a while it gets tattered pretty quickly.
Beginners- simple conjugation verbs (past, present and future), tests and drills to determine your strengths and weaknesses, helpful sentences for tourists, how to properly use the verb in sentences, English translations and many more.
Advanced- grammatical terms and usages, pronouns and other tense forms other than the simple basics, expressions and idioms understand and communicate better with Spanish speakers and many more useful tools.
This book is the ONE and ALL book for SPANISH VERBS! A MUST HAVE to advance in learning Spanish!
The authors have done an excellent job of choosing a selection of verbs that covers a large percentage of words encountered by beginning and intermediate students. The verbs listed are conjugated in every person, number, and tense; for the most important ones, many examples of usage, both literal and idiomatic, are given. Other important verbs not included because of lack of space are related to specific included verbs that serve as models for the conjugation.
The introductory material contains a concise but complete synopsis of Spanish grammar. 501 Spanish verbs is a very valuable, almost essential, resource for the serious student of the language.
