Perfect preparation for Common Entrance. Michael Webb, Northbourne Park School Although the books are designed for a prep school market, I've been using Latin Prep volumes 1 and 2 with my Year 7 and 8 classes here and they've been great! I'm surprised more senior schools haven't latched on to this and if you run a pseudo-CE level 2 course in the 1st and 2nd year, then by the end of the 2nd year, you've effectively covered 330/450 of the new GCSE vocab list! Kristian Waite, Caterham School The second volume in this series exhibits the same high standards of scholarship, presentation and production with which we are already familiar from Book 1.
