Other resources include language lessons elaborating translation and morphology issues, convenient vocabulary reviews anticipating vocabulary exams, an answer key, and indexes of vocabulary, principal parts, paradigms, and subjects. The method is deductive and the goal focused on grammar and exegesis.
