How to study japanese grammar?
there are many ways to conjugate verbs, so maybe that is why you are confused.
"desu" is also considered a verb, but follows "i-adjectives", "na-adjectives", and "nouns"
but sometimes when a verb is not in a sentence, but an adjective is, (for example "you are bad" = "anata ha warui desu"). but if you wanted to say "you are not bad" you could say "anata ha warukunai desu", which is "warui" conjugated. you must memorize how "i adjectives" and "na adjectives" are conjugated, and how they apply.
I use "A course in modern Japanese" published by Nagoya University and "JBridge" but these are quite advanced since I study Japanese at my university. These books use kanji immediately.
But the grammar explanation of these books are good.
Books are really the best way. Or try looking for a website that can help breaking it down. Conjugation is pretty difficult, but once you get the hang of it you'll be fine! There are only 2 radicals (kuru and suru) so the rules always apply. I have a book called "Oxford Japanese Grammar & Verbs" that's very useful.
