By the time the Latin student has reached Chapter 5 in Latin Made Simple, he or she will have realized that the title of this book is simply wrong. Doug Julius has failed to make Latin Simple. It will take more creative and competent hands than his to succeed in this task. I pick Chapter 5 because in it Mr. Julius explains and illustrates the various permutations and combinations of the third conjugation. Few if any students will think that mastering the perfect, pluperfect, and future perfect tenses in the indicative active and passive voice is going to be easy. Let me also mention the imperative, and subjunctive moods for verbs as well as deponent and irregular verbs. At this point it will be clear to anyone studying Latin Made Simple that it will take years of dedicated study to master Latin, a complex and difficult language.

Additionally, to add to the complications of this difficult subject, Mr. Julius has decided not to use macrons to help his readers. As any beginning Latin student knows, macrons are marks placed above vowels to show that the vowel is a long vowel. The Romans would not have needed macrons because they would have heard the difference between words with long and short vowels. We, who are not listening to Latin spoken, need these macrons to assist us with our reading of Latin. Also, macrons are an easy way for us to distinguish between second and third conjugation verbs mentioned above. The future tense in the second and third conjugation is different and the macron or lack of one in the infinitive of a second or third conjugation verb will give us useful information. Also, macrons help us to identify the ablative case in first declension nouns. In my opinion macrons always should be included in introductory Latin texts.

This book gives you a very good explanation on how the language works and gives Latin poems to help give you confidence in reading it and interpretating. Lots of practice problems, and by the end, you can read all sorts of Latin texts.
Biggest flaw however is the title. It is not introductory since it essentially covers every bit of Latin grammar and has lots of the common vocabulary. It isn't really made simple either, since it gives you loads of paragraphs on explaining.
This book shouldn't turn you off however, if you are a Latin learner that wants to learn it more in depth, but at the same time, in a more compact manner than other alternatives, this book is just for you! Others, probably not your first choice.

Ive been taking Latin for the past 2 semesters, and we never really go over any sort of grammer in class. Because of the lack of real teaching, I had to find a book online to help me. After getting 3 other books I finally got this one, and it was the best choice I made. It tells exactly what should be done and why. If I didn't have this book, I wouldn't be continuing on to 3rd Semester and probably 4th semester latin. Love it!

I wanted a Classical Latin book and bought "Latin Made Simple." I beg to differ with the title! This book assumes you already have a lot of knowledge of Classical Latin and are able to jump in and move quickly through the material. If you already know Classical Latin and need a refresher, this would probably be a good book. If you're beginning your Classical Latin study, pass on this book.

I like all the grammatical details. I took 3 years of Latin in high school (MANY years ago) and wanted a refresher. I feel this book does that. The book itself was in great shape, received promptly

I'm having a terrible time with this book because it does not take a step by step approach. Within the first few pages the student is expected to master the first declension of each of the cases together, rather than mastering one case at a time. Though Latin is admitedly a complex language, beginning with information overload only serves to frustrate the learner. I would only recommend this book to someone who has already learned a fair amount of Latin and is looking to refresh their memory, but it's not a very good beginners' course.

Straight forward, no-nonsense, plain-language latin training with consistent quizzing and reviews. I truly enjoy reading this. I just began chapter two and this book makes a great supplement to my Rosetta Stone training.
