X-post: Prep materials for NRCE exam (Roman Civilization, history)

Recommended Posts

Hoping to get some responses in this forum:

 am looking for prep materials for next year's National Roman Culture Exam.

https://www.njcl.org/Online-Exams/National-Roman-Civilization

If any of you have tips, websites, recommended books for prep, I would be extremely grateful. My DS  has taken the exam in the past after watching the Great Courses videos on Roman culture. I am wondering if any of your kids have taken this exam and what materials they used to study for it. Thanks.

I think that this one, the first one listed on the NRCE book list ....

A Handbook to Life in Ancient Rome (TMRC-B0461) by Adkins and Adkins (ISBN 0195123328)

… might be the most accessible.  It is interesting to read, not too academic.

Thanks @LJPPKGFGSC ! I found a used copy of it online and am going to get it to see how much information is available in it.

I also found Mary Johnston's book "The Private Life of the Romans" online and it seems to be a good reference for learning about the daily roman life in case someone else is searching for this information:
