Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book certainly doesn't substitute for any of the existing course books (such as the Cambridge or Oxford courses), nor is it meant to, but it does convey exactly what the title claims, and any student who pays diligent attention to it can count on good success. I have encouraged students to invest in this extremely helpful book and use it myself in teaching. John Taylor is a great gift to the world of classics teaching!

Format: Paperback
This book helped me to get an A* in my Latin GCSE after having to start the subject from the very basics four to five months before my exam - it is very user-friendly, starts from scratch and covers all the main topics of the Latin course - grammar and vocabulary. The contents page is detailed and very useful and the information in the book is usually helpfully concise with no waffle, giving you what you need to know. I also found the harder translation practices at the back very helpful as I was doing that section - however, answers are not provided.

All in all, this book really is "Essential GCSE Latin" and together with "Latin Momentum Tests" by Ashley Carter, it is all the material a GCSE candidate will need for their exam.

As a wacky wrinkly attempting to do GCSE Latin in one academic year [language in just over a term!]Just wish I'd discovered this earlier.
It is very easy to follow. Only downside is there are no answers to check when you are working independently........perhaps authors could be persuaded to produce a separate answer book.....................

I was just wondering if anyone had any answers for the unseen translation passages at the back of this book. It is such a shame that I can't check if what I have translated is correct.

This is THE essential grammar book for GCSE students. If there is a point of grammar they are struggling with, it is easy to find the right section. There are good practice sentences too. The translations at the back are hard, but are good for last minute practice as the exam approaches.

Format: Paperback
It does what a more complex grammar cannot.
Clear defined sections; brief but apt excercises after each; it is a perfect revision guide.
Subjunctive uses are especially well explained.
My favourite part is the unseen practice texts towards the end which help you see if you've understood well enough.
Obviously it's only for a GCSE level but I think this book explains far better certain aspects of fundamental Latin and, therefor, helps to consolidate that essential but basic knowledge which can be forgotten as we progress to higher levels of study.

Very quick delivery and was exactly as stated. A big help for my son. Especially as Latin books are virtually impossible to find on the high street.
