    Invaluable tool...

    But the nook version is very lacking. At least with the nook app. I can not zoom in to see the tiny print, and many, many words are written with Roman alphabet letters instead of Cyrillic. Eg: ???????? is written pa?oTaTb (only letters that don't occur in English are correct, like ?. But ?is shown as lowercase B). This is very annoying because it can mean whole words are misspelled ("Kpa?Tb" for what should be "???????" and "KpaC?Tb" for what should be "??????"). I really hope sometime soon they fix this book; having a dictionary of verbs completely conjugated is crucial in learning a language.

    GREAT find!

    This was recommended by my professor so I got around to ordering second semester. I love how it has the verbs in all tenses and imperative and examples of usage. It has the conjugation patterns in the front. An amazing find for people who want to learn Russian which can get pretty complicating with all cases, conjugations, etc. I recommend this to anybody who is planning on taking Russian for a language. Great book, a great find!!!
