  • I really liked this textbook, but it isn't for the self-taught due to the online content. Admittedly this is not a problem with the book but with the way I thought I could use it. I'm not a teacher or a college/high school student - I bought this book because I've been teaching myself German with a Skype teacher, and this looked like an excellent textbook that I was hoping would provide some structure to my learning. From what I can tell, the problem for someone like me is that the online element of the book (which is substantial) is inaccessible to individuals who don't have a teacher to set up an account, so I was only able to use about 60-70% of the book's content. For the price, missing that much of the book didn't seem worth it to me so I returned it. I liked the way the content was set up in a logical learning sequence. The "class" activities seem like they'd be effective for college/high school students. I gave it 5 stars even though I couldn't use it, because it seems like an effective book. Wish I were back in a class!

  • I had to buy this as the textbook for my class. It's not a horrible book - it goes through language concepts in English and includes some helpful cultural tips. But the vocabulary is not well organized. All the words in the chapter are not presented in a single place - you need to flip through the book to make sure you got all the words. For an independent learner, it's not terribly robust and doesn't explain some of the finer nuances of the language well (like the whole grammatical gender thing).

    This is also a case of textbook ripoff. The revisions between editions are quite minor; I've discovered the workbooks for the 6th and 5th editions are nearly identical. If you need to buy this book series, see if you can save cash by buying an older edition (especially since the audio portions for each edition are available online).

  • If this is required for your German class, get the Kindle version for about a tenth of the price in any bookstore. The workbook will still cost you an arm and a leg, though. My German friends told me this is an extremely bad method of learning the language, but I think a lot has to do with the professor teaching it, as well.

  • I am a complete beginner. This book is very confusing for beginners. Fortunately,I've taught myself German a bit using a book called "Speak in Week German" and I found it really easy to follow through though I was never exposed to german language before. I bought the complete package Includes all 4 Weeks of Speak in a Week German for a comprehensive course for the visual learner with 4 colorful 240-page, illustrated books and 4 audio CDs, and I have a blast learning difficult language. Then I signed up for a class for introductory German and had to use Deutsch Na Klar text book...I was a bit confused especially at the beginning...and I must agreed with other reviews...the materials are all over the place and you have to guess most of the time since they don't provide you with any details; no pronounciation break down whatsoever, etc so it'a hard for a real beginner who never exposed to the language before. But I have no choice but to buy this book just for the class, though it is expensive and it doesn't come with the cudio CD or the video....Bummer!! If you are a self taught, there are much better books out there. But if you're taking a class, you have no other option but to buy this book along with the workbook and the lab manual.

  • This really is not a good book. If you have to use this for your german class, like I do, I feel your pain. This edition is almost identical to the newer 6th edition. However if your professor has you do problems directly from the book for homework, then you should probably get the newer one because pretty much the only things that they changed in the new edition is things like names, numbers, times, etc.

    For example in the 5th edition: "Ich bin 23 Jahre alt."

    Then in the 6th edition it would be exactly the same except for the number: "Ich bin 34 Jahre alt."

    It is a major rip off to call the 6th edition a "new edition".

    If you only need the book to read for class but not do specific problems from the book then save some money and get the older 5th edition.

  • Buyer Beware! Though the description and photos leads one to believe that this product is both the book and the code to access online content it is not! This is JUST THE BOOK! I paid $133 for this book. The code for online content cost an additional $158! That's a total cost of $291 that I now must pay. The book plus the code is $170 at my son's college bookstore. Shop around and purchase elsewhere. I sure wish I had!

  • I really wish this book had instructions in English. I'm okay with the practice being in German. But when you're a beginning student, it takes you twice as long to get through the exercises because you have to look up what the directions are asking you to do.

    The chapters and grammar points don't seem to follow intuitive order for new language learners. I have studied three other non-English languages and wasn't as confused by the order of introduction to new vocabulary and grammar. A more advanced concept will be thrown into the mix and will leave you wondering if it was explained earlier or not. (Chances are it wasn't). This book introduces new concepts but only gives you a few practice questions. So you will have to do more than the book and lab manuals to really hone in on the way this language works.

    All in all, I wish there was an easier book to work with. My use of this book is accompanied by a separate dictionary and the Living Language German grammar coursebook, which explains German grammar rules in straightforward, simpler terms.

  • It feels like this book throws you into the deep end of the pool but doesn't really throw you a lifesaver when you start drowning. I think the authors attempted to teach German in a manner similar to Rosetta Stone by teaching words in context. They fail in this aspect by not gradually building students up to more complex material. Even Rosetta Stone starts with simple colors, words, and phrases. This isn't the worst book I've ever seen, but it's far from what I'd call effective in teaching me to learn German.
