- Grammar is explained thoroughly, yet is not tedious nor overly technical.
- Lessons are the right size, which means the learner is not overwhelmed with material.
- Exercises allow the learner to practice the lesson.
- There is no answer key to the exercises, that I have been able to find. Hence the four stars.
- The most helpful of all are the FREE AUDIO FILES at the University of Michigan, Center for South Asian Studies website:
Other books that will greatly help the beginning learner are:
- "Introduction to Sanskrit", parts I & II by Thomas Egenes
- Part I: ISBN 81-208-1140-2 and part II ISBN 81-208-1693-5
- These books HAVE an ANSWER KEY at the back of each book.
- "Devavanipravesika: An Introduction to the Sanskrit Language" by Robert P. Goldman & Sally J. Sutherland Goldman
- ISBN 0-944613-40-3
- There is no answer key, that I have been able to find.
- There is a SOUND RECORDING that can be ordered from the University of California Berkeley Language Laboratory
- Go to "Language learning Media" heading, then "Search Catalog" and select "Sanskrit" from the list of languages
