    Great Study GUide

    I studied Russian over 40 years ago and I am still able to read and write it, however my vocabulary is not what it once was. For me, this book is a great way to refresh my knowledge with lots of examples, information and exercises. What is missing are the solutions to the exercises. I would like to know if what I think is the answer is actually correct or not.

    Do Not Buy This Book!

    As a native Russian speaker, I can confidently say that this book is awful. People who learn Russian should not waste their money on it. When I was in a store, I found this book by chance. When I opened it and read couple pages, I was unpleasantly surprised with a huge amount of mistakes. Some sentences look and sound so weird. A lot of sentences are written in a strange way that the native speaker would never say like that.
