What about Wheelock's and Moreland?

I am considering teaching myself Latin in my spare time. I might have half-an-hour to put in every day, with more hours available on weekends. <br /><br />I just read the rant against wheelock, in which the Latin:Intensive Course was given high marks.<br /><br />I do not have time right now to go full steam into Moreland and Fleischer, but would it be a good idea to start working on Wheelock now, and then switch ...

Hunc a tuis aris arcebis.

I'm doing a bit of revision, and have come across this sentence (again with no context). Does it mean 'You will keep him away from your altars'?

Oooh...

Some people give up smoking. Others give up drinking. I think I'm going to give up checking Amazon.com. I've just found Wheelock's 6th edition...$14.67. (Only $14.66 more than I have right now in spending money!) I"m practically salivating.

Libraries

From Klewlis, in the post "Do you Use Book Covers"<br /><br />In north america *most* houses are wood. Only the old (or rich) ones are made of brick, and I can't think of any made of stone.

Where are you up to in D'Ooge?

If you are working through D'Ooge's book, how far have you progressed? <br /><br />I myself am up to lesson XXV, the future active indicative of rego and audio, which means that I have finished about a quarter of the book.<br /><br />Also, I'm wondering how D'Ooge's work compares to a typical university course. Does the book correspond to a month, a semester, a year, or can such comparisons not be made?
