The Cambridge School Classics Project series of books has an excellent reputation for the teaching of Latin, and "Cambridge Latin Grammar" is no exception. Although it is only 127 pages long, it is nevertheless an invaluable handbook for any student of the language, particularly for those working at GCSE standard or above.

The book is divided into three main parts. The first, 'Accidence', sets out the entire system of Latin word-endings, with a number of tables that make it easier to learn all those pesky declensions and conjugations, pronouns and irregular verbs. The second, 'Syntax', is a complete guide to all the various types of sentence construction (ablative absolutes; uses of the gerund, gerundive and supine; subordinate clauses etc.) that the student will be faced with in translation. The third part deals with word order and sentence structure - helpful if you want to try your hand at composing your own Latin. A fourth and final part covers miscellaneous topics, from pronunciation to how to correctly use a Latin-English dictionary.

There is a lot of information densely packed into these pages, but it is all presented clearly and concisely, and without unnecessary waffle. This is not a book to read straight through, but to dip into as a reference; as a result, the index has been made extremely thorough, which makes searching for the topic you need incredibly simple. Throughout the book (generally at the end of every chapter) there are a number of short exercises and further examples - excellent translation practice and especially helpful when it comes to revision, although sadly answers are not provided.

If you are just starting out with Latin and need a grammar reference book, this is the one. Everything is beautifully clearly laid out and easy to understand. So it's not as comprehensive as Kennedy, but that is for more advanced students. This book makes nonsense of the oft heard criticism that the Cambridge Latin Course does not cover grammar properly. This is the best introductory Latin Grammar in existence! Just buy it!

I've perhaps begrudingly given this book four stars - if you want a modern Latin Grammar reference, it's probably the best one currently in print, and the most comprehensive, going beyond the requirements of GCSE.
I do feel it could be more clearly laid out, even just in terms of basic typography and tabulation, though. And I find it quite hard to navigate - it cross-references itself via rather obtuse section numbers when straightforward page numbers would be less confusion. My third grumble is the depth of explanations - these are pretty terse, and on several occasions, rather than actually explain the difference between two similar uses (e.g. reflexive pronouns and emphatic pronouns), it just gives a couple of example sentences and says "compare the two" - that's not an explanation!
I guess Cambridge University Press might defend themselves by saying this is just a reference book, not a text book. I can't help feeling there's scope to make it better though.

This is an excellent Latin refresher,to revive memories of Latin at school and to explain all you need to know about the Ablative Absolute, in case you were trying to recall it!

As I have mentioned in my reviews of the Cambridge Latin Course Books 1 and 2 this a brilliant book and I am sure it will be a great asset in my quest as I learn the language of Latin as I study the History of the Roman Empire.

I have had a copy of this grammar with me for at least 20 years.I bought this one so that I would have a grammar reference On hand during an extended overseas holiday.

It is a second hand book but looks as though it has not been opened;in contrast to my first copy, the binding of which has remained secure and intact despite many, many openings to clarify points of Latin grammar and usage.

this helped me when I was accessing a Latin course at the ou. it was particularly useful in placing the tenses of the verbs in a concise manner.

Well-laid out and includes all essential Latin grammar for anyone studying Latin at school. Bought for my daughter as it was on her school book list. She's taking Higher Latin in Scotland, similar level to AS level in England, but this would have also been a useful reference book for earlier stages of study.
