Attempting to take DELE A1 in November

Hi language friends,

I had always been studying Spanish just for the fun of it but lately I'm considering taking DELE A1 since I'm having a few months to spare (after work) - just to set myself a goal and give myself a reason to go visit a friend in Dallas, where the test center is.

I was going to get El Cronometro A1 but only a few third-party sellers on Amazon have it, plus I doubt the shipping will be fast. I'm guessing it's probably the go-to textbook for the European area?

Any of you have recommendations on textbooks available in the States? Actually any thoughts on taking the exam will be helpful!

Gracias!

If you're looking for a specific textbook, El Cronometro is the most recommended. I've used part of the book for the B2 level and, although I didn't take the test, I found it to be good preparation. Note, the website for the DELE also has a practice test online for each level. There's a lot of information about the exam here

Good luck!

Thanks Chris! I will definitely get the book and check out the official website.

Thank Brit! I have used duolingo.com and finished listening to Pimsleur Spanish 1 twice. But I guess what I'm looking for now is a specific textbook for the DELE exam.

Do you need a textbook? 

There is a lot of material on the internet. I recommend:

duolingo.com - it is free and quite good to get the basic vocabulary and structure

audio course by Paul Noble - available as download for little money at audible.co.uk - I found it VERY helpful

memrise.com - free

and with the help of a language partner here at italki, you can learn the basic grammar etc.
