Now that the format for GCSE has changed, this book will replace the excellent Momentum tests which perfectly replicated the old format. There are 4 sections, with translation passages and comprehensions (Sections 1 & 2) for the Latin Language 1 paper, and the same again (Sections 3 & 4) for the Latin Language 2 paper. There are no answers, so not ideal for the self-taught, but brilliant for classroom work. There is no grammar, so you'll need it alongside a book like John Taylor's Essential GCSE Latin.

Hi gents! Me again. Came across this little jaffa in the dressing-room at Lord's. Was playing for the England over 50s against the old enemy and had just snicked off to a Terry Alderman dobber...again. Got back to the dressing-room and this little pearler was just the ticket to calm me down after another failure. Packed with cheerful stories of young, athletic, muscular, heroic men and shapely, well-formed, pliant maidens my mind was set free like 'luo' in the Aorist Passive. What a cracking read - kept me riveted until stumps.
