Great for someone who doesn't know anything about Biblical Hebrew. I like the revamped children's tales that are given with the vocabulary you've so far learned: The Boy Who Cried Wolf; The Gingerbread Man; The Three Little Pigs and a few others. Finishes up with a revamped Book of Ruth.
I used this book in a Hebrew III course, but worked through the first half on my own to catch up to the level of the other students before the course started. It has a lot of exercises, which are more useful when you have the companion answer book. The explanations of grammar are pretty good compared to some other books I've looked at, but it would be most helpful with a teacher to go through the pronunciation.

Wonderful. No, you will not know all the grammatical terms that Hebrew scholars use and you will not become a translator by studying this course. You can, however, become someone who reads from the Hebrew Scriptures and enjoys it.
Too simplified, to the point that you won't learn things that you need to know.
