‘Another essential tool for all serious teachers and learners: thank you. It includes everything needed to help teachers and learners approach all aspects of the A Level examination of the text. I particularly liked the author’s authoritative voice: here is a resource that one can depend upon to do its work reliably. The resource goes so far as explicitly to correct errors overlooked in the exam board’s recommended textbook. This lends confidence to teachers and learners alike: the resource is clearly exactly in line with the examination specification; furthermore, it knows what it’s talking about. It provides practice examination questions throughout, covering all the various types of question possible, according to past papers in this specification.’ – J King, Head of Classics & Peer Reviewer

‘Overall, an excellent resource that would work excellently either as a textbook for a class to use, as a revision resource given out before the Easter vacation, or even as an individual purchase for a student. Everything is clear and well-explained. Pedagogically there are some excellent elements in the notes, taking the opportunity to reinforce grammar knowledge in general, rather than just give a crutch for translation. I particularly like the way that more complex/ stylistically rich parts of the text are broken down into sub-paragraphs for analysis: it’s very clear and very easily digestible. The practice questions and mark schemes at the end are fantastic – one of the chief values of these guides!’ – S Thomson, HoD & Peer Reviewer
