Advanced French Grammar dives into the the most difficult aspects of French grammar. I think the chapter on the subjunctive and the distinction between "c'est" and "il est" are worth the price of the book.

Here is a list of the chapters in Advanced French Grammar

1. Understanding the verb
2. Compound tenses and agreement of the past participle
3. Use of the past tenses
4. Translating the -ing form into French
5. Relative tenses introduced by que
6. The subjunctive
7. Relative tenses not introduced by que
8. Articles
9. Other determiners
10. Relative pronouns
11. Neutral relative pronouns: translating a different kind of what
12. Determining a noun with prepositions
13. Object pronouns
14. Position of object pronouns
15. Expressing this is and that is: ce, ça, and il
16. Questions
17. Translating for, since, and a few other expressions of time
18. Negative sentences

I've already mentioned that my favorite parts of the book were the sections on the subjunctive and c'est/il est. I especially liked how the author gave a list of "trigger expressions" for the subjunctive. She also gave a list of expressions that do not trigger the subjunctive.

I liked the chapter on the past tenses, but I didn't love it. It seems to explain the imparfait the exact same way several other books and teachers explain it; they say it describes the scenery. And I really don't like this explanation because it's so unclear to me. When I tutor students on the difference between the imparfait and the passé composé, I use the acronyms HIDE and STARS.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I like the practice exercises at the end of each chapter, using the grammar of the chapter and building up to translating the English sentences into French. I found some of the grammar descriptions a little 'hard going' and tended to skip some of them and just pick out what was relevant to my needs. Overall a useful book to put your language skills to the next level.

Imparfait - HIDE

Habitual Actions (used to + VERB)
Incomplete Actions (was/were + ing form of verb)
Descriptions in the past
Emotions/Feelings (most of the time)

Passé Composé - STARS

Sudden Ocurrence
Time Limit/Complete Action
Action Disrupts Action of Imparfait Verb
Reaction/Result
Series of Distince Instances or Events

The other chapters explain prepositions, pronouns, making questions, negating, etc. I highly recommend this book to any intermediate or advanced French learner.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just what I needed 27 avril 2008
Par Nina Maxine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
After getting stuck at an advanced intermediate level of French, this book is exactly what I need. I've even spent a lot of time with native professional tutors who couldn't begin to explain subtleties like which preposition to use with each verb or the mysteries of pronouns (ce qui, tout ce qui, ce, cela - does anyone really know which one to use?) because it's just too instinctive for them. And there are enough examples that I can read and reread them until the rules really sink in.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Interesting Collection of Topics 19 octobre 2008
Par Voiceguy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The author has taken a number of trouble spots in French usage and organized chapters around each one.

I found all of the material helpful, and only have a few nits to pick.

First, I would have liked to see a few more examples, especially in some of the trickier areas. The author sometimes crams a lot of different possible combinations in the textual material, and then shows only two or three of them in examples. She assumes -- not necessarily correctly -- that the reader will be able to extrapolate in a number of different ways from the examples. I did not always find this to be the case. On the other hand, the examples that do appear are helpful and relevant.

Second, the author has an annoying habit of referring to the examples by number, even though they are not numbered, and in some cases it's simply not possible to figure out which example she is referring to because there seems to be a discrepancy between the way she is counting and the way the examples appear. It would help to number the examples and remove all chance of ambiguity.

For the above reasons, I would probably give the book 4-1/2 stars instead of five.

On the whole, however, the book contains much valuable material for the intermediate to advanced French learner.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great review of French grammar. 26 mars 2009
Par Baddest Chick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book has an extensive review of French grammar. I realized how much I'd forgotten while going through the chapters. However, this book is for people who have already studied French and need a good review. This book would be difficult to navigate for beginners. Overall, this is a great book for those who want to improve your French grammar.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Book 4 juillet 2013
Par Jeanette Hady - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I am a French-American instructor and have been teaching French for over thirty years. Good textbooks are difficult to find, especially for the intermediate student. This book is a sheer delight, as it addresses topics that can help the student to fill the gaps in his/her knowledge of the language. This is NOT a book for beginners, and I have recommended it to all my intermediate/advanced learners. The clear, concise explanations of grammatical issues are very helpful and the exercises at the end of each chapter are a bit more challenging than those one usually finds in most French books. My sincere thanks to the author for writing this invaluable book.
