Review: This little book was brilliant for practicing my Arabic script. It was recommended to me by my Arabic teacher. It is quite basic but you have plenty of space to practice forming your letters. I would recommend this book alongside an Arabic class as it works well as supplementary material but probably would not be enough to teach you Arabic script by itself. One really useful feature is that it has both printed (naskh) and handwritten (riq'a) Arabic examples (it's surprising how much they can differ!). It improves both your writing and reading of Arabic script and I would recommend it to anyone new to Arabic writing.
