All in all, this book really is "Essential GCSE Latin" and together with "Latin Momentum Tests" by Ashley Carter, it is all the material a GCSE candidate will need for their exam.
It is very easy to follow. Only downside is there are no answers to check when you are working independently........perhaps authors could be persuaded to produce a separate answer book.....................
Clear defined sections; brief but apt excercises after each; it is a perfect revision guide.
Subjunctive uses are especially well explained.
My favourite part is the unseen practice texts towards the end which help you see if you've understood well enough.
Obviously it's only for a GCSE level but I think this book explains far better certain aspects of fundamental Latin and, therefor, helps to consolidate that essential but basic knowledge which can be forgotten as we progress to higher levels of study.
It is much more than just a reference book though. Its teaching is pretty comprehensive even for someone completely new to the language and a treasure trove for those more advanced in their learning of it. This book is in my opinion an indispensable addition to the bookshelf of the Latin student.
If you are new to the subject, getting back into it or revising this will set you on the right path.
