Also this book has NO english translation which is good.
Enough said now on to the review...
1. This book is recommended for students who are active self taught learners, students who have had 1 or two semesters of Russian, are able to read both print and cursive (there's a splash of cursive in here). This is not recommended for people who have not had any Russian or can't read.
2. The "dictionary" in the back of this book is crappy in my opinion(knock off one star), especially for people who don't have a vast vocab background. It's missing a couple of words. People with a vast vocab, more than a semester's worth of Russian, active self learners will have no problem with this.
3. This book is very, very simple. It's a good start for reading, getting a grip on the cases, etc. Hell I would even recommend it to students that are midway through their first semester...I should say the students who are really interested in learning the language
4. Glad this book is selling for $14. It's not worth more than that either nor should you pay more than that price. It's very thin book, thinner than my iPad...only 58pgs long it should've cost $10 or $8.
5. This book is not meant to be the end all when it comes to Russian life and culture.
6. Everything is in the present tense. The past tense is not hard and they could've printed the book that way but it's a first reader.
This book got a 4 out of 5 stars because of the crappy "dictionary" in the back other than that it's not bad for those who have had some russian under their belts. I'm actually glad that it doesn't have an english translation in it. It gives you the chance to use your brain, not be lazy, and come up with your own meaning.
