5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide-But Not For Beginners, 15 Mar. 2010
Équipe Nouvelle 1 is a superb textbook, and covers most of the basic building blocks that are needed when learning a language. It includes units on Friends, Family, School, Food and others.
The book is written in a clear, lesson-by-lesson format, and follows the story of a group of young people that readers may be able to relate to.
Many extension, starter and plenary activities are in the book, and a glossary/dictionary is located at the back, and is an essential homework tool.
However, there are a few faults.
1. The book is usually telling the reader to refer to the Compact Disc/Cassette. These do not come with the book, and are very tricky to get hold of.
2. The answers to the questions in the book have to be bought separately. These, again, are often difficult to get hold of.
3. Some of the activities are written in French that the book has not covered. This means that most of the questions are difficult to understand.
Apart from these small problems, the book has made good reading; and has proved to be an invaluable revision tool.

2.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate Revision, 14 Mar. 2010
The whole point of having a Revision Guide is to REVISE from it-and that's something that CGP haven't quite got the hang of.
Although the book is of great length, and covers eleven different units, it is often very brief, and misses out most of the topics that are covered during KS3.
For example, not one bit of information on Hydrographs can be found in the, "River," section, and Shopping, Crime and Tourism, three units that clearly appear on the KS3 Curriculum, have been missed out.
In addition, to this, despite the Guide being aimed at Children in KS3 (Eleven-Fourteen Year-Olds) the book uses formal language that is often difficult to understand. And, unlike other CGP Guides, isn't written in the chatty, humorous style that buyers are used to. Therefore, it is often difficult to understand, and the information is difficult to retain.
Some of the answers to the, "Practice Questions," are missing, also.
However, for the few, essential topics that the guide DOES cover, they are all covered in exceptional detail, and make good, informative reading.
Unfortunately, that factor alone is just not enough to earn this book 5 Stars.
3 should be rewarded, at most.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!, 4 Nov. 2008
I bought this for my daughter for her 11th birthday and it proved absolute rubbish.
It started off by not loading, and then when we did get it to load, only one of the cheats would work.
Disapointed, we then tried it with a different game, hoping for a better result. It loaded ok, but then crashed. We tried again, and this time I amm happy to report that the cheats DID work. But only for a few seconds.
A few weeks later, we tried the game again, only to find that it wouldn't load at all and the gameboy wouldn't turn on with it in.
So really, unless you enjoy being disapointed, do not buy this game. It is terrible value for money and we have recived no satisfaction from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book!, 20 July 2008
This is a fantastic book for anyone who is learning to play guitar. It covers different aspects of guitar into one brilliant lesson by lesson format. It is full of wonderful illustrations to keep the reader interested and a book anyone must have if learning, as it covers both chords and notes from scratch. I found it easy to use and understand as well as a pleasure to read. A must for all young guitarists!
