I have owned many editions of this book over the years in other languages besides Spanish as well and I will say that it is even better each time. This is a great reference book for anyone who is serious about learning the intricacies of verbs.

This is a must-have book if you ever want to advance your spanish language skills. It was well organized and the instructions and explanations were clear. Highly reccommend, especially for people currently studying spanish.
Mariah
An essential reference book to have on hand for any intermediate/advanced student of Spanish. It also gives suggestions for practice drills of the various tenses- it included tenses I hadn't even heard of!

I used to think this book was stupid. If you could just learn the different groups/patterns, then you'd know how to conjugate thousands of verbs.

Extremely helpful for translating irregular verbs! I don't know if I would have gotten by in my Spanish classes without this book. You can look up a verb and you get a whole page dedicated to all its forms. The beginning also covers the regular verbs in a way that is easy to reference.
Lisa
One of the most useful resources someone learning Spanish can have. 501 of the most commonly used Spanish verbs along with all of their conjugations and useful grammar information. Every Spanish student should have this book in their library.

Gah! I'm trying to get a handle on the simplest of past and imperfect tenses that I have neglected for so long. A little Spain-o-centric, but this book is awesome if you wanna wrap your brain around verb conjugation.
Jeannette
Good Ol' spanish classes, this helped all throughout college and still today when I need to talk with parents during conferences.
Conjugations . . . ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Margarita Bastar
Great book to have in an upper level class for conjugating verbs. It´s quick, easy to use, and helps you when you can´t remember those confusing conjugations.
