Rated 3 out of 5 by from Requires Discipline I was recommended to self learn through this textbook because Wheelock is known for it's easy to follow style. Although the basics of the language can be learned through this text, it is buried in over explanations. It's possible to learn through this text, but you have to be devoted to learning Latin. #plumreview

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A poor reworking of a decent title The original version of Wheelock's Latin, designed as a "teach yourself" volume, was simple, straightforward and provided a good introduction to the basics of Latin grammar. This edition, however, replaces the simplicity of the original with a bloated, verbose approach and a poor choice of readings in Latin. Avoid this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As an Introductory Latin Student I ordered this book in prior to starting my introductory course and it has been invaluable in helping me learn the subject. It establishes all the basics a fairly clearly and provides a clear ascension from basic noun form to complicated passages from authors such as Cicero. The book focuses a lot on the reader getting immersed in the material and makes what may be otherwise dull drills quite enjoyable. I have nothing to say that hasn't already been said by other people on other websites and in different reviews elsewhere; it is an outstanding text and I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn Latin.
