4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 7 Nov. 2010
By Georgay
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For the average learner, Latin verbs require a considerable amount of time and this book is ideal for learning verbs. It not only encourages the learner to learn the meaning of the verbs, but gives the opportunity to concentrate on the verbs in their different tenses etc. Often, when reading Latin, it is easy to claim one doesn't know a verb when actually one does - its just that one doesn't recognize it. Constant practise with this book -the book provides many exercises - will sort that out.

The book is a good step to Cicero!

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful 2 Nov. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are plenty of useful practice exercises with answers provided. However, I am a beginner in Latin and have been slightly confused by the way the verb conjugations are classified. I think this book uses the American system (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 3rd io, 4th), while I am learning the British system with the Open University (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, mixed). If you can cope with this, the book is fine, but I have put it away for the time being as it does not take much to confuse me at the moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars I have not completed all of this book 30 Nov. 2012
By John R.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I find this book does indeed do what it says it does. The verbs are grouped together in their conjugations and they progress at quite a steady rate. You have to do the work but it is set out for you in a helpful way. It soon challenges you to start looking for the word endings and to recognise them for their appropriate meanings. I would certainly recommend this book. It is well set out and certainly a good buy. But, as I say, you are the one who has the work to do if you wish to progress.

I used to learn Latin at school and I was quite good at it, however it is good to look back at what you learnt, it all jogs the memory bank.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent For Review of Latin Verbs 15 Aug. 2013
By Grandjete - Published on
I finished 10 hours of college Latin, over two semesters. By the time the second semester ended, Latin from the first semester was leaking out of my ears. That is to say, I was losing what I had learned pretty quickly. Not good.

This book is the best I have seen for a complete review of Latin verb forms, starting from the very beginning (the four basic conjugation forms) all the way to the various forms of the subjunctive, deponent verbs, and much more. I found it very useful to me to review one chapter at a time, usually over a cup of coffee at Starbucks. This made the review not tedious at all. There were exercises at the end of each chapter to make sure you have understood the material.

A second use of the book is as a reference encyclopedia. Just turn to a particular very form - one chapter per topic.

One thing I was particularly impressed by were the Latin/English and English/Latin dictionaries at the end of this book. Unlike most dictionaries, the only entry was a single basic word which enabled you to quickly understand the meaning of the verb you were looking up. Thus, the author could have a pretty lengthy list of words in a small space.

Recommended especially for the purpose of review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as advertised 21 May 2013
By Adelle F. - Published on
If you want to brush up on your Latin verb tenses (or maybe FINALLY understand them) then this is an excellent book. It presumes a basic knowledge of Latin grammar, true, and does not focus on noun endings, vocabulary, etc, but instead focuses entirely on verbs. That is actually a good thing, or at least was in my case, because it allows one to really work on the verbs themselves. To really know Latin it's best to learn verbs inside and out: everything else is easy once you've got the verbs down, and going through this book methodically will get you there.

3.0 out of 5 stars If practicing verbs is all what you want... 3 Sept. 2007
By Gelly - Published on
...then this may be the book for you. Practice Makes Perfect has a super Spanish book, but I didn't find it so easy to use for Latin. Unlike the Spanish version, Latin Verb Tenses does not provide a lot of background information or equivalents that would allow a new student to work independently. Don't get me wrong-- it's not a terrible book. I was just expecting it to be as great.
