2-0 out of 5 stars A real disappointment
When I saw that this dictionary was based on "American English", I was excited to get it.But save your money, or, better yet, use it to buy the Oxford Russian Dictionary.You can easily cope with British spelling (e.g. centre) and you'll find a much more useful dictionary.I find it remarkable that a modern (1994) dictionary purporting to be based on American English completely omits words such as "Internet", "download", "e-mail", to say nothing of all the acronyms associated with computers.Incidentally, you can find them all in the Oxford!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very great
To put it one way, my russian professor, who is from Moldova, said that she would start using this disctionary. It is based off american english, which does make it more helpful. In the front pages gives most all of the rules of conjugating by the case, and the back appendix gives alot of proper nouns in russian. Its a really good dictionary to use, easy (heavy!), and very helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than expected
This book is a lot bigger, and better than I had expected it to be. I thought it was a smaller, pocket-ish dictionary. But, it is a good sized, 1100 page book. There are plenty of definitions. This is a high quality book. Worth every dime.

5-0 out of 5 stars My ESL thinks it's great!
I used this with a group of adult students from West Africa.They were the ones who decided to purchase the book out of their own pockets because they found it so helpful.They speak French and very little English.I do not speak French.The book was quite valuable.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great
This is great for English language learners. It's organized by sections and is easy to understand. The only drawback is it's ehtnocentric towards the USA and this wouldnt be good for english learners living in Britain.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good reference.
Schaum's Outline of Russian Grammar is good reference for a 1st year Course in Russian. The subject is explained clearly and the contents are well indexed. Given the extensiveness of the subject further studyt would require more specialized texts.

5-0 out of 5 stars A terrific, fun supplement
I recently bought this book along with the New Penguin Russian Course, and the two complement each other very well.The way the Schaum's Outline of Russian Grammar is set up, you could use it with just about any type of Russian lessons, but I think it would be particularly helpful with conversation heavy systems like Pimsleur or Immersion method.The concepts are presented matter of fact and the exercises are very useful to use as self-drill.The overall layout, from a "this is how we'll break down the grammar rules" perspective is also very easy to understand, without skimping on the complexity of certain issues like verb aspect, or uses of the conditional mood, or irregular case endings.It even has stress marks (inexplicably omitted from Schaum's Vocabulary Outline) which are certainly the most important thing after learning the alphabet in terms of learning Russian pronunciation and intonation.Also, there are many explanation of shades of meaning implied by slight changes in grammatical usage.This book has been so helpful and useful that I just can't imagine a serious Russian student, particulary a do-it-yourselfer, not having it on hand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good practice
I started using Schaum's Outline of Russian Grammar after I already knew the basics of Russian grammar and found it very useful. One of the difficulties with Russian grammar is remembering all the rules and applying them correctly. This book is ideal for practice as it contains hundreds of grammar exercises with answers. The author, James S. Levine, begins each section of the book with a clear explanation of the grammar point to be studied. The exercises then test the learner's understanding of this point. The key to using the book successfully is to do all the exercises. This requires a certain amount of discipline, as it has to be said, this is a fairly dull book. There are no stories and no pictures, just grammar and more grammar. It is for this reason that I would not recommend this book for someone who has no knowledge of Russian at all. Moreover, although all aspects of Russian grammar are covered thoroughly including the basics, Levine often assumes the reader already has a reasonable Russian vocabulary and has a fair grasp of Russian sentence structure. A complete beginner would find doing some of the exercises almost impossible.

3-0 out of 5 stars A usefull ADD on
This book is ok to augment your other language course, which should include a cd, dvd or cassette. Without that you wonmt understand how to pronounce anything. I found teh stickers useful as I wanted to be able to read russian rather than just 'parrot' it. whle i agree with most of the negative reviews I did find myself referring to this book quite often, BUT i also own teh pimsleur and 'in your car' russian cds. If this came with a CD it would be great.
2-0 out of 5 stars 10 minutes a day, everyday for the next 30 years...
Be wary of any Russian course that promises quick, effortless results.Learning Russian grammar is like putting together a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle. Without a picture, it's pretty tedious.This book will not help you get "the picture". It teaches 1st/2nd conjugation verbs and a couple of necessary irregular verbs, but that's all the grammar you get.You do get some basic vocabulary words, but not ones that will help you very far in conversational situations. If you are a traveler and need a crash course to survive your trip through Russia, a good phrase book will better serve you.Finally, I have no idea why this book is called "10 minutes a day", there is no plan of attack included to tell you how to meter your studying, and 10 minutes is a little short to get something like Russian to sink into your brain.

2-0 out of 5 stars Big book, pretty pictures, not much to learn.
This book might be okay for kids, but it's not really a serious learning tool.Learning a language in ten minutes a day may be a fun fantasy, but the resources available in this book won't do much to help you learn Russian.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous but Better with Behind the Wheel Russian
For the price, The New Penguin Russian Course: A Complete Course for Beginners is a must buy.This complete guide to learning the Russian language gives you more 'bang for the buck' than any other in its category.
2-0 out of 5 stars Not good if you're going to Russia
I just got back from Russia and this book sucks.Russian Language is very difficult, but it has distinct patterns within the grammer that can easily be picked up if the instuction manual shows them.This book is just a book of rules without showing the patterns, which I felt made learning the language more difficult.
5-0 out of 5 stars Li'l Rock & Roller can spell "Beatles" in Cyrillic now!
I began trying to teach myself Russian (key word: "trying") about 3 years ago, and of all the purely written helps, this is by far the best I've purchased.I very much like its pace:I feel challenged by the exercises, but not so overwhelmed that I want to toss the book out the window (believe me, my neighbors are beginning to wonder about that growingpile of other "Teach Yourself [insert language of your choice here]" in the backyard)."Russian Course" also keeps things interesting by throwing in things the anglophone might be interested in (see title), as well as things one might encounter in the post-Soviet Russia (that pizzeria for which Mikhail Gorbachev once did an advertisement, e.g.).

5-0 out of 5 stars best russian english dictionary
I have many Russian English dictionaries, including some you can only get in Russia and some written entirely in Russian and this is by far the most complete and helpful dictionary I have. I use it almost exclusively.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good customer service but slow delivery
It took nearly a month to receive the item, but they were very good at responding to my inquiries.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helping you decide if this is the best for you.
I would like to clarify some points mentioned below by other reviewers. First of all it is true that the Russian pronunciation is not given, but neither is it given in any other English-Russian dictionary that I know of, or, for that matter, in any Russian dictionary. This is because in Russian each sound is pronounced like it is written. So basically you have to learn the Russian alphabet. So this is not for real beginners. One can't blame the dictionary for this because it was created as an aid, not a teaching course. Still there are some grammatical rules you'll have to learn if you want to pronounce the Russian words correctly, not too difficult rules in my opinion. Basically it all comes down to the accent (very simple stuff). I will resist giving you examples and instead I will give you the websites where you can learn for yourself. If one wants to learn Russian from scratch (or almost from scratch) I recommend that he visits these two websites. They are free and they should be useful if the person wants to know if he really wants to pursue learning Russian before spending money on books, it will help him decide whether he is sure that he is serious about this.

2-0 out of 5 stars Limited Use
After two semesters of using this book it is my opinion that it is only useful for students who already speak the language but need grammar reinforcement.Even though there are many exercises in the manual and a workbook to accompany the material, there are no answers in either the manual or the workbook to verify that you have done the exercises correctly. In many cases, when I developed answers from examples in the dialogs in the book and tried to verify them with Russian friends, the typical response was "well, technically, its correct ... but we don't talk that way".
1-0 out of 5 stars A stupid book
The only people who should get this book are people who are forced to because their school uses it. It is poorly planned and hard to find topics that you want to review. The worst part about this book is that it has no answers to the exercises in it making it usless for anyone wanting to advance at their own pace or for self studiers or even know if they are on the right track! A waste of money. Get New Penguin Russian Course instead for a fraction of the price it is way better than any of the books that the universities are using.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great begginer's book!
I highly reccomend this book for anyone looking to learn Russian.It's easy to understand, and very elementary in its methods.I feel that you should take a class while reading this book, because there are a few words that Golosa will slip in that they don't specifically introduce.Good luck learning a new language! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Russian Text Book
This is easily the best Russian text book I have seen.The explainations are clear and the charts well laid out.The dialogues are challenging and interesting for any beginner.This is not dumbed down at all yet still easily understood.There is no audio, so if you are a true beginner, it won't do.In that case, get a tutor and use this book together.
5-0 out of 5 stars A complete Russian grammar course
I am a Baptist missionary serving in Russia. I used this book when I studied Russian language here in the university. I started study at age 39, with no previous experience in any foreign language. When I completed this textbook, I had a comprehensive working knowledge of Russian grammar. With a few years of practice, I became quite fluent. Later I used this book to teach my family to speak Russian, after tutors failed to make any progress with them. This book is complete, interesting, and very effective. If you will just go through this book page by page and work every exercise on every page, you will have a complete working knowledge of Russian grammar. You will also learn a lot along the way about Russian history, literature, geography, and culture. I have bought a lot of Russian textbooks, and most of them are basically a waste of time. This one is the real deal!
5-0 out of 5 stars Best Russian language book
After buying a number of other books on Russian, this is DEFINITELY the best one.Too bad its not currently available to order.If you are a begining to the Russian language than this is the book to have.It has everything from diagrams of the mouth to help with pronounciation, to a short picture dictionary, to great exercises - AND an answer key. A must have. ... Read more

You get twenty lessons.Each one starts with a dialog that's
5-0 out of 5 stars A good foundation.
This book and CD set is a good introduction to the Russian language.Ignore the other reviewer's remark that the lessons "don't reflect a particular learning theory".Good language lessons don't have to reflect one particular theory.The book contains clearly laid-out lessons and grammar explanations, and the dialogues, vocabulary and grammar talks on the CDs are very well recorded.Slavic languages like Russian are so complex that it's hard for English speakers to learn them without being socially immersed in the language to some degree, so after studying with this or any other Russian self-teaching program alone, you may not be able to talk yet.However, if you finish this program you will have enough of a foundation that once you are in a social setting you should see your speaking skills improve rapidly.

1-0 out of 5 stars Living Language Ultimate Russian Advanced
The course contains dialogues which are poorly translated from Russian to English.Also, the structure of the lessons do not reflect a particular learning theory.A teacher could make the program work, but I doubt that anyone has ever learned Russian on their own using the Ultimate Russian Program. Language is a social activity. I doubt that anyone can learn a language without interacting with others. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars good words, bad printing
I am studying Russian in advance of a vacation I plan this summer; I am using a combination of tapes, software (useless by itself), books, primer, and a Russian aquaintance at work. I got this book because it was inexpensive, small, and contained both an excellent selection of words and some of the grammatical concepts. Unfortunately, it suffers from poor paperback quality printing. The low end paper used for the pages allowed some ink seepage; this makes the Cyrillic script, which I am still mastering, difficult to read in some places particularly when it comes to distinguishing the lower case forms of "na" (looks like an H only smaller) and "yi" (looks like a backwards N).
4-0 out of 5 stars it's a dictionary
This is a good dictionary, especially if you are studying russian language in a school type setting. In response to some of the somewhat negative reviews, this is a dictionary and not meant to teach the language but as a tool to expand vocabulary, which it can do just fine. For travelers who just want to learn a few words and phrases to get around, there are a few travel guides out there with easy phonetically spelled words. I've had this dictionary for 4 semesters and hasn't let me down yet. It is almost time to upgrade to a more advanced version but this a great supplement to use while studying the language. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Holy crap...
I lived in the Russian Far East (on Sakhalin if anyone cares) for a while when I was still in high school on foreign exchange, and this was just about the only thing I took with me (stupidly) besides clothes, a couple of books, and Kraft mac and cheese. By the time I went home it had been thrown up on, fallen in mud puddles deeper than I am tall, been run over by a Kamaz truck, was signed by the legendary Vyacheslav Butusov (I love Nautilus) and looked up possibly a trillion words before the back cover finally fell off.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for early study
This book will help early students (mid first semester) students develop reading confidence and to get a feel for how the language is used in very elementary texts, such as journals, etc.4-0 out of 5 stars An easy introductory reader to Russian, but it's quite short
Useful for building up your reading confidence for very beginners.The first couple of texts are extremely simple, and all of them only use the present tense.I found the end-dictionary comprehensive enough for my use, although it didn't include some words from the Exercises that follow the texts, which is an unfortunate oversight.You will go through this book quite quickly though.I much preferred the slightly more difficult "Beginner's Russian Reader" by Lila Pargment since it is useful much longer, but is more difficult when you are first beginning.Its also unfortunately a bit difficult to find in the US for some reason although very easy to get in the UK where I purchased it.

4-0 out of 5 stars not too bad
This book is definately a 'first reader', as it is quite simple. All the text is in present tense. I do not mind this, but the thing that I find most wrong with the book is that it has a dictionary in back that ostensibly contains all words necessary for reading the passages, but in reality contains about 50% of them. This only means that one must look the words up in another dictionary. But at the same time, there are some words that have multiple meanings, and you look them up in a seperate dictionary, and will not be able to glean any meaning from a sentence.But overall, I have found this book to be very helpful. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This dictionary gives the serious student a powerful tool.
The Oxford Russian-English Dictionary was my first real dictionary as a Russian Language student. Taking advice from a personal hunch I bought the book before I ever stepped into a university lesson in Russian about threeand a half years ago.This dictionary has served me extremely wellparticularly in terms of translations excercises. I personally considerthis dictionary to be a fabulous reference tool for anyone student orprofessor serious about the study of Russian with a focus on finding themost authoritative and accurate translation of over 80,000 words and/orphrases from Russian to English.Please consider purchasing thisdictionary if you speak English as a native language and truly are seriousabout your studies of Russian.The only drawback to this dictionary comesfrom the fact that it forces the user to have a good sense of the meaningthat he or she is after since it provides such a huge variety on certaintranslations from Russian to English which is quite understandableconsidering the difficulty in what many term {comparitive linguistics} i.e. (word to word) translation.I hope that anyone who wants to add tohis or her vocabularly will consider purchasing this dictionary for Ibelieve that it will help tremendously with this endeavor.

Get "5000 Russian Words With All Their Inflected Forms: A Russian-English Dictionary by Richard L. Leed and Slava Paperno
5-0 out of 5 stars you'll be glad you have it
This is something like an expanded dictionary of the most common and useful Russian verbs. Other reference books will help you conjugate the verbs, but this one does it for you in a very complete way. Each verb is given an entire page. All forms of the verb are shown with the accent marks. I used this all the time when I was studying. Often I would use the standard formula to determine the proper verb form, and then I would use this book to check myself. Just looking at the pages helps you to get used to thinking of Russian verbs in all their conjugations. You could study Russian without this book, but if you have it, you will find it useful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference for students of Russian LAnguage
I am in my third year of studying Russian, and I use this book all the time as a reference. All the verbs are fully conjugated, and presented in an easy to read form. Highly recommended for students. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for the beginner!
Teaches the alphabet and phonetics of the letters through the Cyrillic print and then into the Cyrillic script. The process is well structured in format and progression. The book teaches material in very small segments and is full of little exercises to reinforce and practice what you are learning. The teaching process is a little repetitive but this simply reinforces what you learn. The progression is so gentle it almost seems too easy - like learning child's play. Some of the other reviews feel it is a bit too easy and slow in the teaching. The book does almost make it seem too easy. As you progress through the lessons you cannot help but learn - it is almost learning without effort. That is a hallmark of a great teaching program.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not What I Was Expecting But Helpful Nonetheless
I was hoping for a book that would teach me penmanship.I have all sorts of resources telling me what Cyrillic looks like, both in print and cursive.I have no idea how I'm supposed to get there.Do I start from the left and move my pen to the right?Do I start at the right and move my pen to the left?Somehow I had the idea that this book would tell me.It doesn't.
2-0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed...
For the cost of this book, I expected more.My hope was that it would help me refine my understanding and use of Russian script.It contained about two pages of script exposition, nothing more than anyother teach-yourself type course does.If you are completely illiterate in the language, you may get some benefit from this book, but if you can read even a little Russian already, you're too advanced for the scope of this material. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good value
I've worked through nine of the twenty chapters of this book (and accompanying CDs), and I'm very pleased with it.The author takes a "spiraling" approach, repeating the material in different contexts as you progress through the chapters. Russian grammar is difficult, but the author manages to work it in without belaboring it. There is continuity from chapter to chapter, as you follow Anna as she makes friends with Ira, goes to museums and restaurants, and travels to St. Petersburg by train.
5-0 out of 5 stars A clear concise introduction to Russian.
I speak Bulgarian, which is somewhat similar to Russian and boughht this book in hopes that it would give me a concise version of the essential grammar as well as a few basic phrases.In this it delivered magnificently.If you just want to learn a little Russian for your trip then this is a great book to have.It is also an excellent source for basic grammer charts that can help you on a serious study.If you want to really learn Russian, this book will help but is by no means the only book you will need.Russian is a difficult language which will require a lot more serious and percise books than this. However, this is a good book to start with and really easy and clear to understand. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars software needs to be updated, but the dictionary is pretty good.
This product came without any direction on how to install, and I wasn't able to read them from the cd. It is written for a lower version of Windows (I have XP), and hasn't been updated since the 90's. Once I figured out how to type in Russian on my pc, it was easy to look up the words. You have to leave the cd in the drive in order to access the program, even after downloading the dictionary to the hard drive. I think it needs to be updated to work with more modern operating systems and it needs coherent instructions in both Russian and English (I am bilingual and could've used either). I haven't used it extensively, however, it could be much less cumbersome to use. Since it is relatively inexpensive, I do not regret byuing it, and I will use it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Reading
I have found very few books geared for English speakers at the intermediate level, so if you fall into the same category, get this book! The stories are engaging, and there are a lot of words to learn and lots more to relearn.
5-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable stories
After studying Russian for a few months I wanted to try reading something. At first I was seriously over-ambitious and struggled to read a paragraph of Pushkin, looking up every word. I decided Stories from Today's Russia might be more suitable. I initially found the text to be quite difficult; there were a good number of words I didn't know, but as I continued reading I began to find I could read more quickly, making less and less use of my dictionary. These stories are ideal for someone with a reasonable vocabulary and a fair knowledge of the basic rules of Russian grammar. They are neither so easy that there is no challenge at all, nor so hard that they become tedious. It helps that the stories themselves are quite interesting and varied. There are a good number of pictures and maps and some short exercises. I found this book really useful not only because I learned a good number of new words and improved my understanding of some grammar points, but also because in the end I began to really enjoy reading Russian. Maybe one day I will be ready for Pushkin.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent reader with curious stories
There are three novelettes here.The first is about a German who comes to stay with her teenage Petersburg penfriend, the second about a pet Polar Bear and the last about a shipwrecked boy.Read more
