Terrific. Six main parts (divided into 26 chapters) covering Roots, Past Tense, Present/Future Tense, Forms of the Verb, Moods of the Verb and Other Aspects of the verb. Each chapter is further divided into a number of exercises many of which explain and offer examples of points of grammar. Answers in the back. Vowel marks where needed. I find some of it easy and some of it challenging. Great for someone studying on their own. Very good for someone in a formal course who JaneMahmoudwants to do more work on their own.

Mahmoud Gaafar has worked for Radio Cairo, the United Nations and a variety of Pan-Arab advertising companies.

Jane Wightwick is a graduate of Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies. She has worked for a number of schools and publishing houses both in the Arab World and in the UK.
