In a final reading, immediately before the Examination, all important points in it should be carefully committed to memory.In reading the Text the chief object should be to arrive at the meaning with as little help as possible, but nevertheless to ensure perfect accuracy. There will probably occur, even in the first sentence, (a) some words which you do not know, and (b) some difficulty in seeing the exact construction. For the first, turn to the Vocabulary- for the second, to the Notes. If there occur any words which you do not know and which do not appear in the Vocabulary, write them neatly down, with their meaning, in two columns upon the blank pages left for the purpose, adding genitive cases or principal parts, etc., exactly us has been done in the case of the printed words.After doing your utmost to make out the passage in this way, turn to the Translation, and see how far you were right. The Translation is not intended to save you the trouble of making out the meaning, but to serve as a test of your accuracy and to correct your errors.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
