I'm using "First Year Latin" 1958 revised edition, by Minnie L. Smith and Harold G. Thompson. I'm not very far into it, and cannot give any comparisons, as it is the only book I have ever used. Consising of LXXV lessons, it divides subjects clearly. Every multiple of 5 is a review of the previous four lessons, as well as a refresher on all previous lessons. Each lesson contains an explanation of the sunject at hand, helpful hints, 15-20 vocabulary words, examples of words from the lesson in the english language, Translation excersises, and a reading excercise. At the end of a the book, a small latin-english and english-latin dictionary is provided, along with a grammatical index, and charts explaining all declensions, conjugations, etc, etc. I seriously don't know where it can be found, as it was a gift from my spanish teacher, but if searching for it, it may be helpful to know that it was published by Allyn and Bacon, INC.
