    Jenney's, transcending its title

    I've taught this book for two years now to middle and high school students. It is adequate for explaining grammatical concepts and provides sufficient exercise through drilling, but I'm in agreement with other reviewers--later grammar introduced in this book is far beyond what should be taught in first year latin--that is, for middle and high school students--and translations, especially, become more complicated syntactically than any translation in a standard first year college textbook, such as Wheelock's. When we proceed to Wheelock's after completing Jenney's, my students confess, translation actually becomes easier!

    I completely disagree with the other reviewers. This was my high school Latin book, and I loved it. Currently, I'm a Latin major, and I've worked out of Wheelock's as well. I found Jenney's to be extremely simple and easy to get through. To me, it was great for someone just starting out in Latin. Wheelock's, on the otherhand, seems more for someone who already has a Latin base - or at the least a strong background in grammar, who already understands the cases, verb tenses and moods, etc. I like Jenney's so much because it actually takes the time to break things down and give you examples. It's perfect for someone who has no knowledge of Latin or another language which relies heavily on case endings!

    The textbook for my Latin class

    Whew! Memories! This was the book that *I* used in my high school classes Latin I and II. The book starts off as only a *little* difficult (everything up to Chapter 10?), until you start learning DEMONSTRATIVES, the many different kinds of pronouns that exist, the BILLION clauses that exist with the prepositions and adverbs and conjunctions, and SUPINES and deponent and irregular verbs... Definitely not for the uninitiated. *Especially* if you're in high school, with no sort of Latin training beforehand (like I was). This book is the KING of ugly surprises: Beware.

    Latin can be Fun!

    This book is farely good but it tends to mix up the cases and it doesn't break down sentences but it does tell more about greek myths and the greek gods. It is good for people who have learned latin before. I would not recomend it for people who are just learning latin.
