This is my review of Difficultes expliquees du francais…for English speakers: Livre by Francois Rabelais.
This is not for beginners as it is a rather intense and dry way of learning French from scratch, but a useful revision and gap-plugger guide for someone like me who studied A Level years ago.
I like the systematic approach of devoting each of the forty-six short chapters to a specific aspect of grammar, each broken down into main learning points. However, it would be helpful to have the answers supplied in the same book, with perhaps a bit of discussion where "the correct response" is open to debate, or depends on the circumstance.
Also, it might have been useful to indicate "more advanced" points and "trickier questions" to avoid more experienced students wasting time on questions testing basic knowledge
