Lambdin chunks up the concepts so it's slow enough to absorb. However, I wouldn't want to learn Hebrew alone with just this book. It would be better if you combined it with Basics of Biblical Hebrew or something else that gives you the bigger picture. I've heard that Seow's book is based on Lambdin's so he's probably improved it. I'd check that out too.


Fine Systematic Text

by LimitedoAtonement on Aug 14, 2008

This is a fine approach to the deductive method of learning Hebrew. Very thorough, full of paradigm charts. I had used Biblical Hebrew Step by Step Vols. 1 and a bit of Vol. 2 and it was very inductive (giving only one paradigm chart for ALL perfect tense verbs (even hollow and lamed-nun)!!! Now I am going through this book (it has taken me about a month and an half to get half way through). Lambdin gives all the details. For instance, lessons two, three, and four cover ALL the details of the usage of the definite article (hey-). Excellent text for late teens through adulthood beginners.
