There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I gave it four out of five stars only because a workbook, answer book, and teaching DVD are also available (although I have not reviewed any of these extra helps). However, I would certainly not recommend the answer book being purchased along with the text for study if one has access to a teacher. Answer books often make one lazy and not willing to struggle to understand key concepts and principles for learning.
After giving the product further thought and examination, I must conclude that I would not use this text for teaching a beginning Hebrew course. Martin's explanation given the Hebrew verbal system is about as much gobbly goop unintelligable nonsense as one can find in a text that purports to be an introduction to anything!!! I am sorry I purchased and marked in this text since that prevents me from returning it right away! I adjusted my previous rating of 4 out of 5 stars to just 2 out of 5. I gave it a 2 only because there is a great deal of information that might be advantageous to the serious Hebrew addict, but the beginning student BEWARE! This book will only cause you more pain and confusion if you attempt to struggle through its minutiae of details!!!! Again, I cannot underscore enough the inexplicable reason (mentioned in early part of my review) why he chose to present the verbal paradigms with 1st common singular instead of the standard 3rd masculine singular, etc... I am glad I didn't use Martin's text when I first learned Biblical Hebrew because I would no doubt have given up on the task long before I even got halfway through the book!
What a great find!
And, at a great price as well.
I wish I had this when I first studied Hebrew.
