Need Students' Advice for my Book

I am currently working on a Latin Textbook (Wheelock's gives me tons of students to tutor but I'd rather they be able to learn from an awesome textbook/teacher).

What I would like to know is:
1. What do you find lacking in your textbook? (and, of course, which book are you using?)
2. Which parts of the Latin language do you find most confusing?

Answer Key for Dana and Mantey's Greek Composition Exercises

Recently, while looking for available helps for Greek composition, I noticed that my copy of Dana and Mantey's intermediate grammar for NT Greek had some English to Greek exercises in the back and an English-Greek vocabulary list.

De crinibus flavis

Olim vetus caecusque centurio perperam in cauponam Amazonibus plenam vagatus, lecto suo attacto poculoque post paulo accepto, num pincernae iocus de femina flavis placiturus esset interrogavit. hoc audito, quaedam proxima recumbens voce rauca et mascula sic ei roganti locuta est:

Ode to Cam Newton of Auburn

translation of one passage of In Catilinam 1

Non deest rei publicae consilium, neque auctoritas huius ordinis;
