I am sure there are plenty of equivalent (and superior) methods of learning Latin, but this textbook gets the job done just fine.
New vocabulary is introduced in each chapter which is both thorough and relevant to the text. Additionally, Latin-English and English-Latin (smaller) dictionaries are provided in the back of the book.
In addition to the dictionaries, the authors have also provided appendices covering topics such as the Roman calendar, theogony, a bibliography of texts on mythology, Roman chronology, and a very useful guide to reading Roman poetry.
I would highly recommend this book as an essential part of any Latin learner's library.
My only complaint is the lack of answers at the back for the exercises. I'm trying to learn Latin on my own, and having the help of seeing answers would make my task somewhat less daunting. Still, taking enough care, and looking back at the examples and reading excerpt, I think I'll learn Latin well enough to read it on my own. Eventually.
