This book is absolutely awful. The first practice they give you is a set of words written in hangul and they ask you to romanize them. Half the the hangul words are written in hangul that isn't even covered in the book so you have to go elsewhere to reference the entire alphabet just to complete the very first practice they give you. As most people have said, there are no answers whatsoever in this book. I emailed the publisher asking for them and they had told me that there has never or will never been an answer book created for these textbooks. How is anyone supposed to teach themselves when they don't even know if what they're writing is correct? If I have to research everything on the internet I'm better off not buying this book at all. If you're a beginner you're better off not buying this book as well. Since Barnes and Noble likes to be difficult and not allow returns after 14 days or things that have been taken out of shrink wrap I'm stuck with this poorly designed and horribly written "textbook". I don't know how you're supposed to tell a learning book is useful unless you take the shrink wrap off. Thanks B&N, I will no longer be shopping with you. Congrats.
