Michaela, Latin student

“A fresh look at the prescribed text. Good informative comments and information all the way through, which students could incorporate into essays… Good thought that the solution to the scansion example is given… The appendices are an excellent addition to the book, giving students practice in exam type questions… Good mentions of places where there are alternative versions of the text… I like the way the poems are laid out, with the Latin, then a translation, then grammar notes then stylistic/context notes. It makes for easier reading than having to look up notes in the back, which is the format for most books of this kind, and would give more encouragement to students… [While the prescribed text] is old-fashioned in manner and not always easy to follow, [this resource] has a modern feel to it.”– S Henton, Latin Teacher & Indepedent Reviewer
