I learned Hungarian in the 1990s with the previous edition of Routledge's Colloquial Hungarian written by Jerry Payne, but having forgot a lot and wanting to brush up, I picked up this later incarnation by Carol H. Rounds and Erika Sólyom. If you order this, be sure to choose an edition that includes both the paperback book and the audio CD.

The book introduces you to all the typical aspects of a first-year intensive Hungarian course: all the verb conjugations, noun cases and basic vocabulary. E
The book has some good points - modern expressions, practical vocabulary, a fair number of exercises, and a large number of readings.

My big problem is that you have to memorize a lot of grammar rules from boxes and lists because the book does not drill you on them. This is irritating because grammar is the most difficult part of Hungarian, so I feel that this book takes the easy way out and only trains you in the simpler grammar and leaves the harder parts in boxes and lists for you to memorize
