Format: Paperback
I have never before come across a grammar book that explains not just the meaning of grammatical terms but also their etymology - their literal sense. For example:
"Latin verbs fall into four main patterns called 'conjugations' (= joined together, i.e. families of verbs)."
"The word 'perfect' in grammar means 'completed' (rather than 'faultless: compare 'imperfect', page 71). The perfect tense refers to a completed action in the past."
"'Pluperfect' literally means 'more than perfect': it refers to something that 'had already' happened at a point in the past referred to by a perfect or imperfect tense."
Writing in a refreshingly relaxed style ("A vocative is usually easy to spot in a sentence. It is often separated off by a comma or commas."), the author pinpoints common mistakes throughout the book, and includes lists of "Important words with more than one meaning" and "Words easily confused".

With its contents carefully designed to encompass everything needed by those sitting GCSE, this book will provide reassurance and an excellent structural basis for revision.

This is, without doubt, THE BEST handbook of Latin grammar for GCSE. There are many Latin grammars available, indeed I have a handful of others, but this is the one I turn to first every time. None of the rest sets out the material so clearly, and in very manageable portions. There's just enough detail to be thorough, but not so much that the pupil is overwhelmed. And, as a bonus, there are practice exercises at the end of nearly every short section. Thank-you very much indeed, Mr Taylor.

Format: Paperback
Absolutely brilliant. Everything you need to know for GCSE Latin set out clearly and explained incredibly well. Excellent sections such as that on easily confused words are also extremely helpful, as is the use of real examples from previous exams to demonstrate common pitfalls and how to avoid them yourself.

Just a very well written book which attempts to make Latin, which can seem overwhelming at times, incredibly simple -and succeeds!
