Learn Latin verbs with ease
Most Latin verb books offer little more than charts of conjugations and a few mechanical exercises that do little to help you understand when and why a particular verb tense should be used. Practice Makes Perfect: Latin Verb Tenses, by contrast, provides hundreds of verbs with their conjugations, along with clear, concise explanations that pinpoint why a certain tense works in a given situation.
