Adding Latin Primer to GSWL?

We did GSWL stand-alone and were very happy. Now we're about to begin a different Latin Primer - not the Martha-something one - a very old one by a guy named Nutting. http://books.google.com/books?id=4YoXAAAAIAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=nutting+latin+primer&source=bl&ots=SVW7S9tv7p&sig=cOMFw5v1isPnszKqT9d_S4wjuPc&hl=en&ei=YKy8TIOpLIelnQfe9KmqDQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CB0Q6AEwAw#v=onepage&q&f=false The pdf is free on google books but I did end up purchasing the newly printed paperback at Amazon. DD9 finished GSWL a few months ago, so we're spending a couple of days doing review - hope to start on Nutting tomorrow! (It's fall break and we're afterschooling.)


If you're interested in Nutting's book, read the preface and the preface of his Reader as well, for an overview of what he covers. He believes that after both his Primer and his Reader are completed, a person would be ready to read Caesar. My guess is that you might get more mileage out of finishing GSWL - going at a faster pace, if you feel like it, rather than adding something to it - and then moving on to another curriculum when you're finished with GSWL.
