Rated 3 out of 5 by from A practice book Good for extra practice, Not for self-learning though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok book I bought this book a month ago and it was fine at first but it got more confusing later. It is not the french but the English that confuses me. Also, this book is supposed to be a new book but I was reading through it and found hand-writings all over the book. It is pencil but I am still very mad because this book isn't new and have pencil marks all over the book
