Because Henle's Second Year Latin is a graded reader and does not contain all the readings required for the AP Caesar & Vergil, students who eventually take AP Latin will have to reread some sections, and read others for the first time. Nevertheless, by the time he has finished Henle 2, the student will be thoroughly comfortable with Caesar's style and vocabulary (which remains constant throughout his writings) and prepared to move on to Cicero in Book 3.
The conscientious student will find in the Henle series an almost flawless presentation of vocabulary and grammar with more than enough exercises of all kinds to firmly fix the material in his mind. Supplementary Latin readings from history (both ancient and modern), material from the Vulgate Bible, and interesting linguistic insights make this the book of choice for me and my students. The traditional pedagogy is sound and represents the best methods and techniques for teaching Latin. There is also an accompanying Teacher's Manual for the first two volumes which offers an overview of the teaching method Fr. Henle uses (and why he uses it) as well as practical suggestions on using the text, pacing, etc.
Finally, while the Henle series is not "glitzy" with color photographs, it is extremely effective in teaching a highly inflected language such as Latin. It is a private regret of mine that Fr. Henle never wrote a comparable series of texts for Greek. But he knew what he was doing, and he knew how to do it well. The series is designed not to satisfy a mandatory two-year sequence of instruction for students to get their foreign language requirement out of the way. It is designed for those who really want to learn Latin and read the ancient authors (primarily Caesar, Cicero, and Vergil, but others as well). If all you want are simple stories about farmers or a Roman family, this text series may not be for you. For those, however, who want intellectual access to the great Latin writers of antiquity, and the rewards of reading them in the original, you will not find better than Henle.
