There are a few workbooks dealing specifically with English phrasal verbs, and this so far is the the only one I have tried in six years of teaching- most of my students are ones who talk with other non-native speakers of English, so they don't really need phrasal verbs. Occasionally I get a student who plans on doing business with native speakers, or lives in an English-speaking country, and in those cases I use this book.
The last reviewer said this is too British-specific, and on that point I can't entirely agree. There are some Britishisms which were novel to me, but really 95% of the phrasal verbs in the units I have covered with my students are part of US English, too. Each unit is two pages- a half page or so of explanations, then exercises for the remaining part of the two pages. The first unit starts by explaining what the particles mean, which already is a big help; afterwards, each chapter deals with one verb and several phrasal verbs formed from it. After each chapter, students really do know the group of words better, but I have some caveats to present.
-This book is OK for self-study, but really phrasal verbs are often COMPLICATED in terms of sentence structure, but also MESSY in their semantics, the latter of course being much worse than the former for learners. So a student's successful completion of a chapter, especially on his or her own, does not imply an ability to use phrasal verbs successfully, but rather an improved ability to understand a given group of words. One or two examples of each verb helps, but what's needed is a lot more exposure to them than just two pages in a textbook; for these reasons, I give the book four stars for classroom use, but only two for self-study. So- a three.

The Cambridge "In Use" series is a favorite of mine; however, this book is too British English specific. I wouldn't recommend it for use in North America.
