When Professor Frederic M. Wheelock's Latin first appeared in 1956, the reviews extolled its thoroughness, organization, and conciseness; at least one reviewer predicted that the book "might well become the standard text" for introducing students to elementary Latin. Now, decades later, that prediction has certainly proved accurate.

Workbook for Wheelock's Latin is an essential companion to the classic introductory textbook. Designed to supplement the course of study in Wheelock's Latin, 7th Edition, each of the forty chapters in this newly updated edition features:

Transformation drills, word and phrase translations, and other exercises to test and sharpen the student's skills"Word Power" sections that focus on vocabulary and derivativesReading comprehension questions and sentences for translation practicePerforated pages for hand-in homework assignments and space for the student's name and date
