4.0 out of 5 stars Solid introduction to the mysteries of French Verbs April 24 2003
Format:Paperback
If you're trying to teach yourself French, you may find the numerous verb tenses intimidating. This book will help you to overcome many of those fears. While the French use verbs in a more complex way than we Anglophones, they generally do so in a logical and orderly fashion. Once you've learned the future tense or the conditional tense, for instance, you'll find that it applies to most verbs.
De Sales helps you to understand those basic building blocks; the lessons are clear and basic, and if you follow them you will be well on your way to mastering French. The only nit I might pick is this: perhaps he could give the definition of a verb *before* using it in a sentence. There are cases when he will ask for a conjugation of a verb that has not yet been introduced... or a translation. You will definitely need another text or two along with this one... but if you use this you'll find the Mystery of French Verb Conjugation to be much less mysterious.

5.0 out of 5 stars You want this book! June 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This terrific (and bargain priced) book gets my vote for Best Supplemental French Text. It's an invaluable aid for current students and anyone wanting to brush up on their French.
Once you "get" French verbs, you're 90% of the way towards fluency. This book clearly and systematically explains how the French verb system works, providing numerous and varied exercises to practice each point.
There are also countless mastery and review exercises throughout.
Just a fabulous text -- very logically put together and very thorough. It has helped my understanding and mastery of French to increase by leaps and bounds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors, too little context April 24 2006
By Ken Braithwaite - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There are too many erros in the given solutions, too few examples of how to use verbs in context, and too little explanation.

Spend an extra 3 bucks and buy the superb Ultimate French Verb Review and Practice.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fairly good drill book June 26 2007
By Corran Horn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a book for verb drills, this book is alright. It has a nice glossary in the back, and it has complete conjugations of many irregular verbs. It's set up so that it deals with all of the tenses first in their regular forms, and then later there are exercises for irregular verbs, which quiz you on all tenses/moods at once. Personally, I think it would be better for the book to have longer sections about each tense/mood, which deal with irregular and regular verbs at the same time.

In other words, I would rather practice one tense at a time, rather than, as the second section is set up, practice irregular verbs one at a time in all of their different tenses/moods. Most classes (high school or college) are set up so that you deal with one tense at a time (regular and irregular at the same time) as you eventually learn all of the tenses, and unfortunately this book isn't set up that way. That's my personal preference, and, perhaps, once I have learned all of the tenses, this book will be more useful for me.

I would really recommend this book instead, for it presents the verbs by their tense, and it provides lessons about prepositions and useful verb expressions (ex. faire la cuisine, avoir de la chance) as an added bonus.
