Help in general, amabo te.

I use Wheelock's Latin, 6th, and I find many confusing sentences:

1) Supera (macron over 'a') animos et iram tuam.
(What does this sentence mean?)

2) ...bellum convivam Caecilianus habet!
(...handsome guest Caecilianus has!) Why does it not read
'bellam convivam' since adj bellam must agree with noun convivam?

3) Satisne sanus est? (I translated this as "Is sanity sufficient?", but I think I err.)

Verb question and pronounciation question

I've started Wheelocks, and still working on the first chapter.

I have a couple of questions.

I try to speak the words as I'm studying them. I'm having trouble with

"conservavi" (mark over the i)

Second, I want to use words in sentences of my own. Can you use a verb like this?

Peccare cogitant.

They plan to sin.

Thanks and I'm sure this is the first of many questions!

Edition Differences?

I have the 5th--is there a big difference between it and the 6th? I would suspect not, but before I buy Dale Grote's accompanying book, I would like to know if there have been any significant changes.

What study techniques do you use?

I am thinking about changing the way I am studying and I was curious how other people study. I have not been using any sort of organized study plan. I was previously just doing the excercises in each chapter of Wheelock. I also have the Workbook (3rd edition) but was not using it yet.

I am considering the following method:
1. Read the chapter
2. Do all the excercises at the end of the chapter ...

Translation question

I am having trouble with a Latin to English translation and was hoping someone here could help me. I always seem to have more trouble with questions. Here is the Latin (it is from Workbook for Wheelock's Latin 3rd edition page 34 # 4).

Quid de me et exitio patriae meae cogitas?

My problem comes with the "me et exitio" phrase. I believe that "exitio" is in the ablative case and should be translated as ...

I have decided to start teaching myself Latin and thanks to help from benissimus I decided to get Wheelock's Latin. I picked it up at my a local bookstore. Soon I will buy 38 Latin stories and I have been wondering about a few other book type things that are offered.
