I took two semesters of Latin in College.
Then I got a real job, and my Latin was growing rusty. Oh I have Wheelock's, and the accompanying materials. Then I found "Latin Via Ovid."
Suddenly, I rediscovered the joy of studying this "dead" yet very "living" language by reading passages of the great Roman poets, in the original <more or less>, without the tedious declensions <which are included>, or conjugations <which are also present>, but I could READ Latin! I could READ and UNDERSTAND Latin! Suddenly, words became living organisms. . .I could listen to someone, and mind go into Latin, and make almost miraculous comebacks. . .breaking ordinary English into Latin roots. . .
Never mind that.
If interested in the Language of Scholarship, but don't know much about it <and I didn't learn the rules of grammar until I studied Latin>, this is the book (and please, get the accompanying workbook!) for you.
