Hard to find your way around, however this is an essential book
By al tishal oti
The second edition of this book could really use some additional indexing.
This book is not a dictionary per se - it does not purport to be one - so usually the process begins by finding a Hebrew verb in a separate dictionary. The three dictionaries that I use present you with with the INFINITIVE of the verb, or FIRST PERSON MASCULINE, none gives you the ROOT. Unfortunately, there is no index in this book of infinitive or first person masculine forms of verbs. Indexing is by the ROOT only in Hebrew.
In the English index, the sequence is very confusing. The page sequence is from right to left in accordance with Hebrew script, but the columns on each page run from left to right.
As a result it is difficult to identify the verb you want to research. Usually it requires back-tracking to the closest English word, and then scouring through the conjugation pages of possible candidates for the infinitive or first person form of the verb.
However, once you actually identify the verb, the information is exceptional. All tenses and constructs are included. I would say that despite its shortcomings, this book is essential to students of Hebrew.

HEBREW LANGUAGE REFERENCE
By Terry H. Mozorosky
The Hebrew verbs book , 2nd edition is a big improvement over the 1st edition. I especially like the use of examples of the verbs used in sentences and the book starts on the right side as is the Hebrew language

As a low level Hebrew student, I find this reference very helpful. I'm also considering trying to learn one root per day to make it through in a couple of years. It's very organized and useful!
