"Basic Spanish" by Dorothy Richmond is the best book available for the beginning Spanish student. The two main goals of the book are to teach vocabulary and grammar. The vocabulary chosen for the book is overall very good. Many verbs are taught, which is different from many other books, which tend to under-emphasize verbs. Irregular verbs and stem changes are reviewed often enough that the learner can memorize when they apply. The book includes the various uses of the prepositions in Spanish and how to know when to use various prepositions, which is especially important since "por" and "para" have such diverse meanings.

The grammar in the book is basic and taught thoroughly so that the learner is comfortable with the topics. Verb tenses are the major topic missing; a more advanced book will be needed for learning those. The grammar topics that are taught are constantly reviewed in the chapter reviews and in later exercises. The exercises also have solutions in the back of the book if you need them.

Some of the other reviews say that this book is not for an absolute beginner, but I disagree. The only knowledge that is needed coming in is a basic understanding of English grammar. If you don't know what a direct object or the past tense is, then yes, this might not be basic enough, but in general I would recommend this for any learner, from middle school to adult.
I was surprised to hear that this book is not designed for beginners. I have several Spanish books for independent study and this is the one I like best. Many of my other books go into too much detail for someone just starting out--long lists of vocabulary to memorize, multiple grammar point introductions, etc. I really needed something very easy to jump-start me before I dived into the harder stuff. This one dishes it out in very palatable doses with just a few vocabulary words and just one or two grammar points in each lesson or only two or three pages. Yes, it's true that this book will not make you fluent and its scope is very modest. Still, after delving into all those other more intense books, this one worked for me. I don't feel frustrated and do feel that I'm beginning to build a small, but basic vocabulary and a few grammar concepts. One negative for me are all the contemporary cultural references--a lot of celebrities I've never even heard of. Still, that's only a small complaint and you quickly get used to it. Soon, I'll be ready to ratchet my study up a little and tackle 'Easy Spanish, Step by Step' and then 'Ultimate Spanish.' If I were in a class and had to learn 50 vocabulary words a day because of time limits, I'd opt for a more intense book, but since I'm studying Spanish primarily for fun and to be able to read Spanish literature, I need something with a more mellow attitude. Practice Makes Perfect Basic Spanish fits the bill for now.
Currently, I utilize Pimsleur, Rosetta Stone, and am working through this text. I am getting ready to move to Mexico (while I continue to work in the Gulf of Mexico, out of Louisiana). My fiancé is Mexican, and speaks very little English. So, I have been studying like crazy, and researching study methods like crazy. It is imperative that I rapidly get a grasp on Spanish. (My brain doesn't cary Google translate).

This book has given me much more conversational functionality. The writing assignments have helped me immensely, especially the translation sections. The words and phrases which I have learned through this book thus far have easily integrated into my dialogue. Pimsleur has also been fantastic for this. Rosetta Stone is sorely lacking in aiding my dialogue, but has helped me in my reading comprehension (unless you are a pirate, or have adequate means, I do not recommend RS. IF "argh" is in your vocabulary, or your treasure chest is full, get it. It takes a long while to get past some of the annoying simplicity, and toward the end of level one gets WAY better! They can still make it a bit more challenging, in my opinion, but I digress.).

There are some mistakes in the book, such as the over-use of nosotros (being used more than once in a sentence) and some other cosas pequeñas that a native speaker pointed out to me (sorry, but I do not recall them...). That is the only drawback, but is easy to overlook.

PMP Basic Spanish is fun and diverse. I find the assignments quite enjoyable and interesting. Many of the Q & A's reference pop culture, both current and past. Often, when I get things wrong it is due to my lack of pop savvy! (I've learned a bit about Harry Potter since I started this book). Over all, I would highly recommend this book as a supplementation to your Spanish learning arsenal.
A solid book for learning/teaching Spanish. My children had 1 year of Spanish in Catholic school (ages 10 & 8). I am now homeschooling and chose this workbook to continue teaching them Spanish. I had 2 years of Spanish in high school and 1 year in college, so this book is a great refresher for me & allows me to properly teach my kids Spanish. My only issue with this workbook is that the book makes references to famous people that my kids have no clue about (Paris Hilton, for instance). I would recommend this workbook for beginners and kids older than 7 years of age.
This book is great for reviewing basic Spanish. I have worked only about 40 pages of the book, but have found it helpful and enjoyable. A new concept is introduced and then there are three to five pages that give you practice on that concept. It also builds so that the concept introduced in an earlier chapter is used in later chapters to that you continue to think about the concept instead of just leaving it in the past. The answer key is in the back so that you can compare answers and possibly figure out where your error is and learn how to do the exercise correctly. Going to buy more!
