I have Teach Yourself Latin. I found that it required too much memorisation before one reached the relatively small number of exercises at the end of each chapter.<br /><br />I would say that it contains plenty of info, though, and that it serves as a good reference. Sure, it isn't the physically biggest book around, but the writing is free of any verbosity and is very upfront. The style is almost harsh. <br /><br />In its favour, the exercises are long and are "real" latin, and it has a companion website, tylatin.org , with additional exercises. <br /><br />I myself prefer D'Ooge.
