Format: Paperback
At this level it comes thick and fast. It isn't so much being thrown into the subjunctive (you get plenty of practive throughout at those) but the rate at which the complicated odds and ends get introduced: ablative absolute, future particple; consecutive and conditional clauses, gerunds, passive intransitive verbs, etc.
These are presented almost one-per-lesson and their comprehension is essential to understanding real Latin, of course. Among this, we're hurled into Latin poetry...for which you need the patience of a Saint...the jigsaw puzzle without being shown the picture.
I felt there was insufficient practice material, texts in particular, both in prose and poetry. Here we have that dreaded break from "school" Latin to the real stuff and it isn't nice.
To compensate, the Teacher's Guide does have full translations, allowing lone students to check if they've understood each passage (or find out why not). In the absence of adult education on Latin in your area, you may be happier with such help.
I looked at the Cambridge course but inspecting the Teacher's Guides revealed no translations of Latin texts, an omission in my view - one needs to stack as many odds in ones favour at this level. Presumably Cambridge think everyone has a classical language school just around the corner.
In short, the Oxford is the more succinct, provides translations and model answers (in the Teacher's Guides), but is consistently hard work. I would have been a lot happier had Stage III been divided into two parts, each perhaps a little longer so that one's deflowering into "real" Latin was a little less painful.
Oh, those innocent days of Stage I!

An easy to follow book with exercises that are clear, focused and don't try to trip you up by throwing in all sorts of peculiarities. Wish I'd found it earlier. Shame no answers available for independent study....

I bought the three book series of the old Oxford Latin Course second hand. I then waited two weeks to get the teacher's book which I bought from America assuming it would have the answers to the exercises and translations in: it does not! For the home learner this makes the whole series utterly useless. Do not buy! Do not think it's a cheaper option than forking out for the new series: it isn't.
