Seow's introductions to noun morphology, the article, prepositions and pronouns are good. However, I found Seow's verb introductions too steep for me, a student who had no previous exposure to Hebrew or any other Semitic language. Seow does not drill the student enough toward confidence in reading whole sentences and extended passages. Seow provides excellent excurses about the BDB lexicon, reading markers and pausal forms, nomenclature for verbal patterns and root types, reference grammars, poetic Hebrew, and orientation to the Hebrew Bible. I do recommend Seow's book as a review text. Because of the steep verb introductions, I do not recommend it as the main text for students who have no previous familiarity with Hebrew or any other Semitic language.
