    A must own for anyone with an interest in the French language

    For people who are trying to learn French, I cannot emphasize enough the need to be comfortable with conjugating verbs. It is impossible to express very many thoughts in French (or English) without using a verb. '501 French Verbs' does an excellent job explaining how to master French verbs. Not only does this book cover how to conjugate regular and irregular verbs and use them in speech, it also does other things, such as thoroughly discuss when to use the subjunctive mood and list phrases that may come in handy when traveling to a French-speaking country. I do not recommend this book for a person who has little or no experience with the French language since it is somewhat involved. On the other hand, people who have an interest in the French language and have studied it for at least a year should strongly consider getting this book.

    A must have if you're learning French!

    I just got hired as a French teacher and was browsing the website when I came across this book. You see, I studied in Paris many years ago and I have the 3rd Edition of this book! It really is a gem. I recommend it to anyone who is truly trying to learn the language. It's hard to form sentences if you don't know verbs! I will recommend this book to all of my 1st and 2nd year students!

    Very helpful

    I got this book a few days ago, because my French teacher recommended it, and now I can conjugate irregular and regular -re, -ir, and -er verbs. This is very helpful for those who are willing to learn French the easy way.

    CD doesn't work with newer versions of OS X for Mac

    The book itself is comprehensive and very useful. However, the CD -- which is declared to work on both PCs and Macs -- isn't supported by the current Mac operating system (gIven that this edition came out in early 2007, I suspect it might not be supported by the current Windows OS, either). Hence the middling rating.

    A necessary reference for writing in French

    After a break of about four decades, I decided to take a conversation refresher course in French. Although we didn't do much writing, we worked on verb form crossword puzzles. This book helped to fill in the blanks of my faulty memory. I have one of these books for Spanish verbs which I used extensively when I had to do any writing, so I knew what a handy reference the French one would be. Since there are so many verb forms, it is hard to remember them all, especially the ones not used very often or the dreaded irregular verbs. I would recommend this to any serious student of French. It makes choosing the right verb form easy and accurate.

    C'est tres bien!

    After working for years with 201 French Verbs, I didn't know what I was missing until I purchased 501 French Verbs. Not only are all the tenses of the verbs explained and conjugated, but also there are practical phrases and uses with each verb. Combined with quizzes and helpful commentary, the French student has a resourceful companion in 501 French Verbs.

    Love this book!

    I am currently taking college french and this book has been so helpful! I don't know how I took my other french classes without it. Not only does it teach the conjugations, but in the front it explains all the different tense and when it is appropriate to use them. This book is fabulous and if you want to learn french, a must have.
