I think it is one of the best resources of this kind on the planet, I wish every language had such a series. Sure, there are other good choices too. But one of the advantages of this one is the continuity. Have a look at Intermediaire, Avancé, and Perfectionnement books. They make one great bundle, tackling details and levels the other series don't even try to touch. As you are thinking about the grammar books' usefulness over time, I think you should judge these three levels of the series together, not separately.
Thanks for the recommendation! Is it true that there are separate answer books? Would I then need to purchase each book and its answer key?

I was describing my experience with it rather lenghtily here https://forum.language-learners.org/vie ... q&start=70 As far as the digital tools go, this one is the best and it is the only website that can rival the paper based grammar exercise books.
I signed up for Kwiziq and I'm having a fun time exploring the website. My Easy French Step-by-Step grammar book has apparently done me well, since I scored well into the A2 level, hooray!

The book is excellent. It's well organized, comprehensive and concise without getting too granular if that makes sense. One of my better purchases for French learning.
Thanks, this is helpful, from viewing a few pages on Amazon, it looks like it would be an excellent reference book.
