Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The technical presentation of the Workbook is excellent, and the amount of information and scope for practice and self-assessment is considerable. Not only is there something here to satisfy most pedagogical approaches, but nothing is presented dogmatically .... We have to be grateful to the author for the sensible and challenging volumes which he has produced particularly in the last four years, not only because of their intrinsic value but because they provide a readily available core on which the teaching and learning of the Russian language can be ready, to 'lift off' once more. J. Ian Press, Dept of Russian, University of St. Andrews

"This book will be particularly usefl for post-A-level or post-Higher students at university, because it will help them systematise and deepen their knowledge of grammar, while at the same time widening their Russian vocabulary .... All in all, Terence Wade's A Russian Grammar Workbook is an extremely interesting and useful textbook, and I shall recommend it to all my students. Irish Slavonic Studies, No. 17

"An outstanding contribution to Russian studies .... I am sure it will quickly become an essential handbook for all serious students of Russian in the English-speaking world and beyond." Dr Margaret Tejerizo, University of Glasgow

"Terence Wade's A Comprehensive Russian Grammar rapidly became a standard text for students after its publication in 1992. The present volume complements the Grammar but can be used either in conjunction with it or independently. Over 230 exercises reflect every grammatical point and include grammatical quizzes and translation texts. The book is well set out with clear, largish print for ease of perusal." British East-West Journal
