Pas mal! Tres Bien - Good!

Pros-

*Good, nice handy book, 1st chapter builds confidence.
*Pronunciation of every french word is given beside it.
*Covers all grammar & pronunciation rules.
*Builds quite some vocabulary (includes a dictionary at the back)
*Teaches you to converse in specific situations (if you were in france)
*You get the basic concepts of French Language quickly, everything written clearly by the authors.

Cons:-

*Very little and No exercises to exercise the knowledge gained and the concepts learned.

I would give it 5 stars, had they included enough exercises to make the learning 'complete & perfect'.

I was just finding this type of book. The CD provided is also superb. But the most important and the most helpful thing is the French pronunciation written in english. This is the best part of the book. Believe me, I was the best student in my earlier French learning class and take it from me that without the pronunciation, you will not be able to learn it. So just go for this book blindly. And the price is unbelievably reasonable. Thank you "French For Dummies'".

Good Book

Very good book for beginners. An audio CD is provided along with the book to help enhance the listening skills. But the CD I got wasn't a good one. 2 tracks viz. Track no. 18 & 19 didn't play well. The audio wasn't clear. And there was a hole in Page 75 of the book.
