“On the whole I thought this was an excellent resource. It is ahead of the market and was well illustrated, which leavened the in depth factual material. I also liked the page numbers which made for easy cross-reference. It enhances learning by stretching the more capable, while providing a framework re word order for those who find Virgil difficult. Its educational value is to provide everything a student/teacher might want thus giving reassurance, without being patronising” – L Ashley, HoD & Peer Reviewer

“This is a fantastic resource… I found it to be a comprehensive overview of the content required for the Virgil unit of the exam, with a mix of exam-appropriate activities. I particularly liked the use of sources scattered through the resource to break up the texts. The paintings in particular are a nice touch to encourage secondary-source discussion. It is a super comprehensive overview of the entire topic, which makes most planning and delivery easy. The information is comprehensible enough that an absent student will be able to catch up independently.” – D Lester, Teacher & Peer Reviewer
