Throughout the the level of the used german vocabulary and the excersises can be increased. The number oft he short texts has been increased, too. Some of them have gone beyond the needed vocabulary in the everyday life. Both books follow the rules of the Dependency grammar. There is an important enlargement, that affects the whole information in the grammar book. The arangement according to semantic criteria has been retained.
