If you are a self-starter and have the discipline to stay with it, this is the way to go. It teaches Classical Latin and prepares one to read the Classics in the original (Virgil, Ceaser etc.). Chapter exercises and self-tutorials (answer key in back of book) let you guage weaknesses before moving on. Highly recommend this text.
This is a review of the ebook version. Once again, these guys replace letters with images (see the reviews for Sribblers, Sculptors, and Scribes). Do we really need macroned vowels WITH an acute accent mark? Just leave the letter with a plain macron. I haven't ever seen another Latin textbook do that.
