I'm a beginner in French and I'm learning pronunciation in French with this book. Would anybody come up with any good books/resources which contains the rules of pronunciation of different verb (in each conjugation) forms?

Not a book, but an excellent resource for pronunciation guidelines is forvo.com. You can search for almost any word with pronunciations recorded and submitted by (supposedly*) native speakers.

Some examples for a verb (jouer - all present tense forms + past participle, imperfect and future):

As you can probably here, there is little to distinguish between quite a few of the verb forms, especially joue, joues and jouent.

(* I say supposedly because, as far as I'm aware, you don't have to be native. It's always a good idea to try and find more than one recording / cross reference just to make sure you're not learning a non-standard accent etc.)

    I did not understand OP was asking for audio files but rules of pronunciation. Here are some good audio files. But the method OP uses already has a CD with audio files.

  • @Laure I don't think he was asking for audio files, but you can learn the rules quite well just by hearing plenty of examples.
