|Author:||Thomas R. Beyer, Jr.|
|Comments:||Excellent phrasebook with lots of cultural information. The grammar section contains an astonishing amount of material in a mere seven pages. Great for the beginner.|
|Publisher:||John Wiley & Sons|
|Comments:||Simply the best dictionary there is. If you are at all serious about learning Russian, you must have this book.|
|Publisher:||National Textbook Company|
|Comments:||This is the textbook I used when learning Russian. Read the review at amazon.com before you buy; I agree with most the reviewer's comments. I thought the book was great, but I had a great teacher while I was using it. If you're studying on your own, this book may not be ideal.|
|Authors:||Pekhlivanova, Kira I., and Lebedeva, Marina N.|
|Comments:||Another book for the serious student of Russian. It is written in Russian, but the wonderful illustrations and the clarity of presentation make it easily accessible to even intermediate-level students. A fantastic reference book which would also make a superb adjunct textbook in a classroom situation.|
