A Useful Primer,
This review is from: Schaum's Outline of French Grammar (Schaum's Outline Series) (Paperback)
A generally well organised primer for those planning to take French to a serious level. The book is well laid out and the explainations are for the most part very clear.
There are one or two errors in the book (for example in the list of impersonal clauses that take the subjunctive - I hasten to add that my native French speaking teacher identified these, not me), but not significant enough to devalue it. The cross referencing is a little patchy in places and some of the exercises on the dry side, but then since when was grammar supposed to be fun!
The section on verb usage is mostly excellent but the section on pronouns would benefit from expansion and clearer examples. Overall though, a very good buy.
