The toughest thing for beginners of Biblical Hebrew is not so much the syntax, but the morphology. This volume is what some experts may consider a "crutch"-an otherwise helpful book that can have serious repercussions on a beginner. A word of caution to beginners in reading BH: Do not purchase this book until you have had about 3 semesters or more of graduate-level biblical Hebrew. Why? Because this work, as I state above, can be a "crutch" to new-comers in that it parses every single verb and participle in the Hebrew OT, thereby giving the student instantaneous access to a skill that should probably be attained via arduous study. It will pay off in the long run to be able to parse a verb on one's own without this parsing tool. One reason I have it is for checking my work, and also for it's relatively quick one, sometimes two-word English definitions that accompany each entry. I recommend the book for those who have a firm grasp of reading Biblical Hebrew for its quick-reference capabilities, but I recommend it with some reservation for novices.
