The Everything Essential Latin Book by Richard E Prior

This product was recommended by Lynda Fairly from Numlooker

I read the free version on my kindle app. It’s written in a way that’s easy to follow and has many different types of questions and exercises. The first chapter talks about the main characters of the Latin language and how it differs from others. The second chapter talks about verbs and how to conjugate them. It was great to help me visualize the Latin phrases I learned in class. I used this book to supplement my Latin classes in college, and it helped a lot! It is written in such a way that it really clicks with you when you start using it.
