Reviews

'This is a book of very great value and will be eagerly received by classicists… Its great virtues are lucidity of explanation, utterly authentic ‘scholarship-style’ questions appended to the passages…and sheer scope of relevant practice delivered.' —Chris Jackson, Head of Classics, King’s College School, London

The explanations are sound, the exercises and passages are really useful. It makes teaching Latin language a lot easier!' —Claire Le Hur, Head of Classics, Rugby School


'Mike Seigel’s book, building on the strengths of its previous edition, gives an accessible and succinct account of Latin syntax which will be very useful to students from pre-GCSE to A-level.' —John Taylor, Head of Classics, Tonbridge School
