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'.

Little boring

I have read the book word power... which included 2 or 3 pages to read and en exercise after that nd this was same throughout the book....which made it good to read...though word power was for improving english vocab and this is for a whole a new language maybe it is a liitle boring with any book........but if u r plannin to start french without any previous knowledge.. try out some other books first as this is more of a dictionary than a step by step learning book...
