I'm out of practice and looking to brush up on my Latin. Is the Cambridge Latin Course book series decent? Looking at the "interactive" series that Cambridge listed on iTunes as well as the more traditional books elsewhere.

Looking to pair the series with Lingua Latina per se Illustrata, which is what my teachers taught from, and maybe Wheelock's Latin.

Would either of you know where to snag the series for free? It's fifty bones to buy the entire interactive series on iTunes, and the traditional series isn't listed on bookz, MAM, or bibliotik. Cambridge's own site has the annoying embedded versions, but only up until unit 2.

Also interested in this.
Where would you recommend a beginner starts?
I took only one level about a year ago, probably forgotten most of it.

get lingua latina and a grammar reference id say, both are easily gotten on book, and just try to read a lot.

Am I the only one that thought the ending was extremely grim?

You develop attachments with all these characters then BAM! Vesuvius explodes they're all dead lololololololol

I used Cambridge and hated it. The stories are nice enough (not infrequent typos, though, mostly misplaced macrons that can be confusing to newbies), but they don't explain ANYTHING.

The example I always give, which maybe is too particular to me, is that I needed the future perfect explained to me by my teacher the first time I encountered it. For some weird reason I couldn't jigger my mind to properly picture "something will have happened before something else happens in the future." The book gives no explanation at all. It doesn't give a diagram of temporal aspects of verbs. It's so weird.

If you're just out of practice, use Shelmerdine or Wheelock. Stay the fuck away from Lingua Latina, it's a worthless meme.
