I have tried a few books to improve my French but this is the only one that has proved addictive. It is a big chunky paperback with one verb per page in alphabetical order. I really like the layout. For example, you go to the verb reflechir. It is conjugated in all the tenses. At the bottom of the page are some commonly used expressions including 'Il faut que je reflechisse' - I must think it over. 'Reflechir avant de parler' - to think before speaking. Then there is a box leading you somewhere else in the book. In this case it says 'Review the subjunctive clearly and simply on page 560'. So I find myself reviewing the subjunctive and so it goes on. I end up doing much more work than I anticipated. A very successful format for me.

I bought this book when I first began to learn French and together with the Collins Robert French dictionary, they are hardly ever in the bookcase. It is an invaluable reference book for me. 501 verbs are covered in full with all conjugations, this should be sufficient for all but the very advanced student, many more (over 1000) are referenced to within the 501.
I have seen many verb tables but this is by far the most comprehensive. I can thoroughly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book if you have progressed a little way into learning French. It is a reference book. If you're not sure how to conjugate a verb then you can look it up quickly and painlessly here. It is in alphabetical order and it is clear and easy to read. The first part of the book explains all of the tenses and their meanings and my only criticism relates to that. It would have been nice to have translations on the pages with each verb as well.
Each verb is followed by examples in use, sayings and idioms and commentary. There is an excellent index, exercises, phrases and vocabulary which it says will be useful for travellers. But this is a big book. I can't imagine removing a couple of pairs of shoes from my luggage to fit this in. As a reference book it is superb but that rather reduces the value of the vocabulary. I think I would have preferred more verbs or more examples. Having said all that, I have Bescherelle as well and prefer this book because the layout is much clearer and the examples are very useful. However, if I wanted a book to travel with I think I'd be more likely to take the very slim and light Bescherelle.
What am I saying? I am glad I own both. But if I was buying my first book of verbs I'd buy this one. There probably comes a time when you need Bescherelle but this one is much easier to use.

This book is an excellent addition to your library if you are a French speaker/learner of any ability. I teach French and use this book a lot to check on spellings/conjugations and my pupils use it for their basic verb needs - any age/ability can use it. There are basic conjugations, more complex - er/ir/reflexive/subjunctive - its all there.

I also bought the 501 Spanish verbs which is equally as excellent - go get it!

I never know which prepositions to use with which verbs and this book is excellent for that. It has tonnes of examples and a section at the back on using verbs & prepositions in idiomatic expressions. Very good

Certainly not for a beginner but fot those wishing to speak French in a proper grammatical way. It has proved invaluable to me and my husband over the last two years that we have been living in France. There is also lots of good helpful advice in other areas of the French language.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Laraine S. Nash on 14 Mar. 2010
Format: Paperback
This is in my opinion the best french verb book I have ever found. It is simple and very easy to use, with examples and covers all you would ever need to know for a beginner to being a fluent french speaker at A level and beyond. I have studied french for years and now living in France myself since 2003 and speaking french all the time, there are still moments when you are writing that you feel that you must 'double check' your spelling or tense. I lost my original book but felt I needed to replace it as its a must even when you are fluent. If you are serious at learning french this book will definitely make life easier.

I ordered the book and have had it delivered today, I am sure that I will find it useful but when I opened the package it looked like a used book. It has 10.99 written in pencil on the inside. If I had realised that this would be a second hand edition I would have bought the 6th addition version for much less.
