I like how this book Hebrew for Reading Comprehension allows one to input the answers to the translation exercises - and it syncs my answers between my iPhone and my PC.

But the book doesn't have an answer key. Tongue Tied

Did Logos forget to include it in the book? Does the book even have one, either in print form or out on the 'Net somewhere?

I just sent a note to the author/publisher re: this. http://www.hebrewforreadingcomprehension.com/?

I also emailed the author: http://web.evangel.edu/Directory/Bios/Index.asp?username=GriffinW

The author responded to my email inquiry saying that a formal answer key hasn't been marketed yet, but one his TAs has done a lot of work on one.

I'm glad I had a year of Hebrew, even though it was almost 20 years ago, and though I've not really kept it up, I know enough to be able to figure out the answers to the exercises so far. IMO, though, this book should not be marketed without an answer key, especially for self study. Using a computer you can look up a word if you need to; I'm not sure if it only works with lemmas or with the word as shown.

If you have not had any Hebrew and don't have a teacher or friend to help you, you probably should not choose this as your first Hebrew grammar until there is an answer key.

There are, however, those of us who rarely use answer keys and believe that a basic understanding of how languages work and a belief that learning language usage is a self-correcting process is all that is needed. Which is to say you need to know your own learning style to pick appropriate resources. Eric point is well taken for many.
