Each verb listing is packed with information, but well-organized for easy use. Columns make the designation between singular and plural and simple and compound tenses clear.
The use of blue ink alongside traditional black printing helps readers separate content. For instance, in a vocabulary section, the Spanish word is in blue and the English translation is in black.
Blue thumb tabs, like those used in dictionaries, can help readers find the verbs they want quickly and easily.
Multiple indices at the back of the book offer a great tool for users in navigating the book. They can peruse an index of common irregular verb forms to find the infinitive. They can look up a word in English to find its Spanish equivalent. Finally, they can search by Spanish infinitive.
As mentioned previously, defective and impersonal verbs appear in a separate section, and are not included in the alphabetical verb listings. Although this treatment marks them as unique, it also seems like a potential point of confusion for students looking for one of these verbs. This is especially true given that gustar, one of the Essential 55 Verbs, is an impersonal verb.
Small blue-shaded boxes at the bottom of many pages provide additional tips to readers, directing them to specific content, such as, "Use the guide to Spanish pronunciation on pages 665-667." In a book that contains so much more information than you might realize at first glance, it can be helpful to lead students to additional help. However, it also seems to clutter the page without adding to the specific verb conjugation the student is seeking. In the example given, there was no particular relation between ducharse (to take a shower, to shower oneself), the verb on the page, and the suggestion to check out Spanish pronunciation.
