I bought this book 18 months ago after commencing an A-Level in French, and as I progressed through the syllabic topics I found the lists of vocabulary to be extremely comprehensive, up-to-date and pertinent. They proved to be extremely useful all around, for discursive writing, oral activities, class discussions and reading activities; and knowing even just a selection of the words from each section of the book helped to boost my general confidence in French phenomenonly, not to mention my marks, immensely helping me attain such high grades.
The initial section of essay phrases was absolutely indispensible for writing tasks and in preparation for my A2 oral, in which I wouldn't have been able to debate so intensely against the strong, forceful arguments and stances with which I was faced without the help of this book.
You can't possibly go wrong by buying this book. It's very reasonably priced and is small and portable enough to be carried everywhere, whether for vocabulary revision or for communicating with French people. It is ideal for any A-Level French syllabus and will not let you down!
