Of special note are the "just for fun" activities for each special topic chapter. Enhanced with appendices that list of derivatives broken out by chapter, as well as a list of phrases used in English, Word Mastery through Derivatives Designed for Students of Latin is an ideal and unreservedly recommended addition to academic library Latin Studies instructional reference collections in general, and as a Latin Studies curriculum supplemental studies reading lists in particular.
