Student Workbooks supplement the Latin for the New Millennium textbooks with additional exercises and passages designed to reinforce the material presented in each chapter.
• Content questions test students’ comprehension of each chapter’s Latin reading, background material, and grammar/syntax presentations.
• Exercises reinforce the grammar and syntax lessons presented in the Language Facts of the student text.
• Translation exercises from Latin to English and from English to Latin improve students’ abilities to read and write Latin.
• Student Workbooks expose students to adapted Latin passages not only from authors introduced in the primary text but also from other authors, for example, Sulpicia and Kepler, not presented in the textbook.
• Black-and-white illustrations provide visual context for the Latin readings.

LNM employs a fusion of the reading approach and the traditional grammar/translation method. Lessons on Latin morphology, grammar, and syntax flow from and employ examples from the Latin readings that are adapted from Roman and post-antique Latin writers. Such readings provide students a literary-rich vocabulary. Ample exercises build students' facility with reading and writing Latin. A Talking section in each chapter provides contemporary Latin and lends itself to practicing oral Latin while the Teacher's Manuals feature a bounty of aural-oral activities and exercises.
The Second Edition includes a list of English derivatives for the Vocabulary to Learn of each chapter (and a new exercise in the workbook) as well as an additional eight new exercises that provide laddering and reinforcement as suggested by teachers using Latin for the New Millennium. The Second Edition also includes corrections and minor changes to macrons and illustrations.
