   Useless as a Study Aid
Do not buy this as a Latin study aid, as they have refused to provide answers to any of the exercises for some reason. I got this thinking that it would be handy to check my Latin for a coming exam, but there is no way to brush up your answers, so what is the point?
   It would probably be a great resource, but obtaining the answer key for the ...
It would probably be a big resource, but obtaining the key for the book is next to impossible. I would certainly purchase the text book for this study, but unless you are in a class situation and this book is required, I would pass on it. Unless you want to use it for practice only and have an alternate source to check your answers.
   The Classic
The classic text is useful for learning Latin. I studied Latin in college. My sister ganged me into service to prevent my nephew from failing Latin. He would have been sacked by his football team if he picked up a subject from the Wheelock textbook and work book and was up to speed in no time. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn Latin from scratch or brush up from scratch. Ipsa scientia potesta is :
   Answer Key Never Sent by Publisher As seems to also ...
Answer key never sent by publisher As seems to be the case with others who have bought the book, despite writing variously to the publisher, I have been unable to obtain the answer key for the workbook. Though the book is still of limited use, its value is greatly reduced since as an independent student I can not check the answers to the questions to see whether they are right or wrong.
   Great for Reinforcing and Practicing
This workbook contains many exercises and questions to practice the material presented in each of the chapters of Wheelock's Latin. I found them very interesting and a great help with drilling the material into my thick skull. I particularly like the Exercises of translating Latin into English and vice versa ''. As a note, you will need to follow the information in the beginning of the book to gain access to the answer key to check your work. I found it easy to do and '' I gained access within a day. This book adds to the exercises for each chapter in the textbook itself.
   Key Problems
The workbook itself merely alerts you that you have to memorize word for word, the Wheelock 6e, as a bard. One small grammer mention has to be memorized and the work book tests you on your barding skills. You are not Latin with Mime Wheelock. He says : You say :
   No answer key
The important thing is that for a Latin - woorkbook there should be an answer key inside, in this case there isn 't! And it is mentioned on blue print paper, do not get surprised because it isn t published.
   Independent Student
I have noticed a lot of reviews that point out the difficulty of obtaining hold of the answer key. I simply copied Wheelock's Latin Workbook answer key and found this PDF is scanned for the entire workbook. Please take all efforts before insulting the publisherseller simply because the first route you chose to take was not as easy as it was probably intended. Outside of the book answer key issues I would have to agree that especially independent students would greatly benefit from this book. It contains a large number of exercises that increase the repetition and critical thinking required to master the text and language more efficiently.
   Review of Wheelock's Workbook
This is an effective companion to Wheelock's textbook. It contains a variety of different exercises that are consistently given throughout the book, including English-to-Latin, Latin-to-English, Latin vocabulary exercises, declinations and conjugations, and Latin grammar reviews. The work could be rendered useless if one makes careful use of the review exercises now available at the back of the textbook itself, which are sort of a mini-workbook. This would save the need to travel with two sizable texts.
   OG Book is 5 stars, a workbook with no answer key is -1 stars
Key answer is no. At all costs, avoid. Get the original book or Started with Latin '', which is also excellent.
