Excellent Study Aid Apr 24, 2001
This book is perfect for any student (Highschool or College) who wishes to preserve what was learned during the school year. It contains 12 weeks worth of daily reading passages and parsing questions. The length of the reading passages only require about 15-20 minutes a day and the 3 parsing questions are perfect for paradigm maintenance. Each chapter has a small vocabulary list which is easy to memorize in a small amount of time. Also, students can check the back of the book which contains full English translations of the daily passages. It would be helpful if it had a comprehensive Vocabulary list in the back but, if a word is forgotten, it is not that difficult to look through the lesson lists. Overall, this book is a terrific collection of daily 20 minute studies.
