4.0 out of 5 stars If you need help with advanced grammar, look no further!, 3 Aug. 2004

Mrs. M. P. Small "Grammatica" (HARROW, Middlesex United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Via Plana: Graduated Readings in Advanced Latin (Paperback)
This is an exceedingly useful book for those studying Latin and 'A' level and beyond. Eleven grammatical constructions are dealt with, with ample practice provided for those doing A/S level, then A2 level, then the first, second and third undergraduate years. Firstly there is a detailed explanation of the point, complemented by charts and examples. Then follow various exercises/translation passages from Latin authors graded for the five levels. One is made to think and reason. In the introductory pages there is advice on how to make one's own vocabulary book and a glossary of technical terms. There is , however, no vocabulary section and some could find this a disadvantage. It is a challenging book and should help students gain command of the language.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for grammar, 20 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Via Plana: Graduated Readings in Advanced Latin (Paperback)
I bought this because I'd been told I had to for a uni class this term. Initially rather resented having to buy a book of translation passages, but actually it's quite a useful book, better than most I've used before. The translations are arranged with sections explaining the grammar in between them, which makes it more likely that you will revise the grammar before doing the work than if it's in a separate book. Good, clear explanations too, with the essential info and then the more intricate exceptions to rules/difficult bits.
