Like several similar titles, this book has conjugation patterns for every regular and irregular verb. What sets it apart is the terrific CD-ROM which comes with it. The CD-ROM contains hundreds of exercises which you do on the PC--many of which are for listening comprehension. There are also sound files for phrases using the "Top 50" verbs which can be downloaded to make your own audio CD as well as put on a MP3 player. All of the phrases are marked on the page for the particular verb. There is an amazing amount of material in the book/CD-ROM combo--as much as in many programs which are far more expensive and far less convenient to use. It is the best verb book out there for that reason.

The Big Red Book of Spanish Verbs is practically the reference bible of Spanish verbs, with plenty of lists, information and tips to help you understand and remember the thousands of verb conjugations.
Each verb is listed in all tenses and there are plenty of examples included with each verb to help you get an idea of how the conjugations can be used in context. Many of these examples are colloquial, giving you a taste of how the verb is used... read more
Anna Rivera's Review of the Big Red Book of Spanish Verbs
By A. Rivera "LearningSpanishProductsReviews.com" - December 6, 2009
To tell you a little about my background, I am the editor of the Learning Spanish Products Reviews newsletter.I am also a native Spanish speaker and a Spanish instructor. In addition, I am the author of two learning-Spanish products offered at Amazon.com (USA):
1. Anna Rivera's 1000 Plus Most Powerful Spanish Words (English and Spanish Edition) 2.Anna Rivera's 800 Plus Most Powerful Spanish Phrases (English and Spanish Edition)
This is an excellent book for conjugating verbs. It is more of a reference book than a how-to-book. It is certainly not the type of book that was intended to be read from cover to cover. In any event, you will find that this book is a very useful resource for learning Spanish. In fact, I will say that a Spanish verb conjugation book or software is a required resource for mastering... read more
