This workbook for third and fourth year high school Latin students is designed to assist students in reading Latin. A broad selection of Latin authors and texts, only four of which are unadapted, provide practice in reading Latin for comprehension. In addition, the first ten chapters systematically review all of Latin grammar. Two chapters present rhetorical devices, scansion and meter, along with passages for reading comprehension. The passages are taken from a wide variety of genres and texts and offer practice for students preparing to take the SAT II, the National Latin Exam, and the Advanced Placement Latin Literature tests. Every chapter contains exercises for practice and the grammatical and syntactical explanations are keyed to an appendix which contains the forms of Latin words.

Lest title or names of authors should leave you in any doubt, this is a book from the states, and very much aimed at the US market. The bulk of the book is a review of grammar, accompanied by a wide range of passages from both prose and verse authors. These are used to focus students on specific grammar points, although there is also a wider aim to work on fluent reading at sight. The explanations seem clear enough, perhaps with a little more formality than CLC.
Much use is made of both multiple choice and then comprehension questions focused on the topic under consideration. There is certainly plenty to make students think about the language and teachers might well find they could make selective use of material to supplement their chosen course. There is a particularly interesting section on rhetorical devices, metre and scansion, once again accompanied by a range of passages to illustrate and test. This is followed by a section of comprehension passages, which might well be used to ease students into working on unseens, with questions on both grammar and content.
Finally, there is a selection of free response passages, that is, a passage followed by 2 or 3 short essay questions for students to get their teeth into after 13 sections of carefully guided and focused work. --Tim Wheeler, JACT
