My copy is a 2007 reprint of the original.

The grammatical section is concise enough not to be daunting and thorough enough to be helpful. Examples were really enlightening because they stuck to simple Latin, making it easy to translate without looking at the English. I could see myself using this with my high school students as a reference. However, the grammar is not exhaustive; Allen and Greenough is a much better place to turn for fuller explanations.

There are many, many composition exercises. I did just a few, but they were for the most part good practice for the grammar discussed in each section. Often, though, they are pretty diabolical. Thankfully, there is a good English to Latin section at the end.
