   Too Many Errors to Make It Trustworthy
There are many helpful things in the book and the accompanying CD is a bonus, though the speaker's pronunciations do not always match the instruction. That said, there are many errors and mistakes in the book that render it unreliable. A good copyeditor or proofreader will hopefully clear the problems in a subsequent issue. Just a few examples from the opening lessons incorrect column headings in charts, the omission of ß from the alphabet list after mentioning it in the text and varying pronunciations of the word Vater. This book works best as a companion book to another primer or better yet personal instruction. I would not recommend or trust it as the only source of learning the language.

   and a fun way to learn a language
I learned a ton from this book, and I am a German native. It answered so many questions about German grammar, which none of my teachers were able to clarify very well. This book is really fun and a simple way to learn a language. Even for someone like me, it was a little bit difficult.

   Great Resource
This book is a grea for intermediate or advanced beginners as well as a clear resource for very experienced learners. The cultural tips, which the book also gives is VERY helpful. After reading this book, I went to Germany and felt so much more prepared than I did before reading the book.

   useful in conjunction with other materials
It began to go too fast when it got to perfect times and I had to go to other resources to get a better grounding to move forward. Finally, i decided to move just past the other moments to the perfect material, just to finish the book.

A good grammar book that covers everything from the basics to the complex nuances in a very structured way, and with an excellent pace that you can adapt to your learning. This is a must-have if you are a self-learner.

   A great introduction
The approach of Swick is conducive to those who have no experience with the German language. His attention to numerous objects helps the reader to make sense of the German direct and indirect articles. Swick introduces the material in a sequential logical fashion. The book notes differences in colloquial and German written to help the reader understand how natives use language. The exercises are short, but provide good exercise. It is a good book!

   Much better options exist
Ultimately, I realize that many better products exist and this is really not of any benefit. No structure, no planning and whoever wrote it is in their field by no means whatsoever a professional.

   Greatly recommend
Nice with CD enforcement of the German language spoken in hearing it.

   starting it out!
I 'd like to brush my German, and truth be told, I forgot everything after high school. So, that is why I start with this book. It is a good basic starter book, and for someone who never learned this language is a good book because of the amount of explanations in English. The amount of vocabulary is good, I mean it IS basic and you can 't really expect it to be a dictionary, otherwise people would be very turned off by the book, and plus they would have a lot of vocab and not really know how to use it. The amount of money in this book is therefore good. I wish I could have gotten more exercises from the book, but if one is able to pair it with other resources, I will be covered. If you're learning German or starting for the first time, be sure to use other resources to cover as many topics as you can and also to get more examples, where possible.
