French books  
After buying HarperCollins Robert Unabridged French Dictionary (the ultimate bilingual dictionary), I want to know what is...

1) the best French Grammar book. My teacher told me that Schaum's Outline of French grammar is good, but I want to know if there is a better option. I am not familiar with Le Bon Usage and Langenscheidt Pocket French Grammar, so I need information about those books too.

2) the most concise (but complete) conjugation book. There are so many conjugation books out there, but I don't know which one to buy. I cannot find Bescherelle here (by the way, what's the difference between their « La Conjugaison pour tous » and « L'art de conjuguer » ? are they the same book?). My next option might be the "501 French Verbs".

N.B.: bilingue, monolingue, ça m'est egal

I've got the English Edition of Bescherelle - Complete guide to conjugating. I don't know where you live, but in Canada I found that this was easily found, considering..well, it's Canada. I'd been taking french since 4th year and then continued until 12th year. I really need to get back into it soon, though. I live with 2 french girls, one 1/2 french guy and another girl who's like a 1/4th french (She's the only one that I'm better than at french. lol)
