    It is used by many universities. I haven't seen it myself.
    why do you ask?

    Начало and Голоса are equally good for the first two years of study. I believe all three have a text, a workbook, and at least an audio CD. Close your eyes and pick one.

    Удачи вам!

    It is the book that I am required to use for this terms Russian class. I was hoping that someone would tell me that it is worth the money they want for it. I have already bought the book and the exercise book that goes with it. So far, I think it is just like Golosa and I hated that book. Too bad that schools don't use New Penguin!!!

    I hated the book. I still think a used copy of New Penguin Russian for 5 bucks is better value. I don't know if ANY of the college Russian textbooks have answers to exercises in the back. Without them it is impossible to self study. Perhaps that is a college textbook conspiracy!

    If you have never used any other book you won't notice anything. (Ignorance is bliss)
    I self studied Russian for a year and a half before I started a college program, therefore I was stunned at the stupidity (and price) of the text books they used, Golosa and V Puti.

    Well, I used another book about 30 years ago, but didn't study. It was very functional, dry as toast, but lots of info. I still refer to it.

    Over the summer, I used a textbook called Troika to (try to) catch up to the intermediate class offered this term.

    I'll write reviews elsewhere, when I have a little more time.

    I'm finding V Puti confusing, and the glossary is incredibly disorganized. On the other hand, I like the paragraph - sized reading, the oral work on computer at their website, http://www.prenhall.com/vputi/ and, as an English literature grad student, I love the literary excerpts: Pushkin, Anna Akhmatova, etc....
