“I would definitely purchase this. Its hallmark was thoroughness and it maintained a high standard, from the start, with the illustrations of Cicero, to the exam questions at the end, which rounded it off nicely.The contents were detailed and followed the usual reliable format of other ZigZag classics resources. It enhances learning by giving students of all abilities confidence, through following a consistent house style viz in the separate sections = Latin, translation, grammar and translation notes, then context and style notes. Its educational value is to stretch the more able by providing signposted extra material, while not overwhelming the less able. It matches the spec superlatively, with no omissions.” – L Ashley, HoD & Peer Reviewer

“On the whole, I like this resource. I think it is a thorough discussion of Pro Caelio and would function well as a resource to teach the entire topic. I like the amount of detail given in the resource. I feel there is enough there to stretch more able learners to the A/A* grades, while supporting the less able to achieve. I really like the line explanations, looking at the specific grammar and vocabulary in each line which could be easily overlooked. I feel that this encourages students to think carefully about the Latin they’re reading and encourages deeper thought processes.” – D Lester, Teacher, Wycliffe College & Peer Reviewer
