I am currently studying Latin and a friend has recommended Traupman's "Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency" book.

Can I trust that the vocabulary within this book is accurate, or should I be concerned about learning incorrect Latin?

I have not seen this book myself, but this review in an academic journal might be of interest to you:

    It seems like they are up to 4th edition now; I wonder if they improved upon some of the criticisms of the first edition.
