Overall, an excellent resource: it is everything a teacher or student would need to study this option – despite the fact that the Introduction for Teachers suggests this resource is designed to complement rather than replace the OCR edition, it seems to me to entirely supersede it. The grammar and translation notes give the right level of support to both guide students through the translation, and to reinforce language learning, which is particularly valuable for the Group 3/AS texts. The inclusion of practice questions is an excellent selling-point of the guide – the inclusion of two papers, of which the first can be used part-way through teaching the text, is extremely useful. Lastly, the appendix 2 is outstanding: what is especially useful is the references to line numbers; having an index of grammar topics as they occur in the set text is a god-send to those teaching the language side of the course – introducing new topics, or even better, revising, we will be able to start from parts of the set-text; two bits of revision at once! – S Thomson, Head of Classics & Peer Reviewer
