Summary

Clear, step-by-step explanations of grammatical structures and carefully sequenced exercises allow students to reacquaint themselves with the essentials of modern German from the ground up. Most chapters are divided into levels, permitting students either to begin with a basic review of the topics at hand or to proceed immediately to more advanced material. Self-evaluation and self-study are the keys. By preparing at home, students are able to enter the classroom on an equal footing, regardless of their varying backgrounds. Book jacket.
