Made it through my first year of Biblical Greek.
Brad Atchison
Croy has its uses. I have heard it is great for classes where you have a lot of interaction. However, if you were like me, who had to learn the language in 10 weeks on an online course, this is not a good book to use.

-Assignments come in with the book
-Considerable interaction with the New Testament right away, which is a plus
-Great for class room interaction when used supplemental material.
-Free access to Review Guide at the end of each chapter at Eerdemas.

-I'm not the biggest fan of

The book itself is very good. But the Kindle edition is hard to use. It would be nice if the "Go To" bar allowed me to go immediately to a particular chapter.

Good source to use alongside other Biblical Greek learning tools.

Although the basics are covered, the explanations are very difficult to understand and the exercises within the chapters are too far advanced. The translation, from the beginning, is preposterous for a beginner. To the author's credit, there are other exercises which one can access online and print out, that are easier.
For all my complaining about him, Croy has actually written a good introduction to Biblical Greek. If this is the text you're using, rest assured that you'll be given ample opportunities to try out what you learn with each lesson. The practice/review sentences are very helpful.

Truth, I am reading this cover to cover. From it I am learning biblical Greek, sort of... sort of again. It is listed here simply so I can get credit for the fact that I am actually reading the entire thing, as is required of me.

Read this back in the fall during Elementary Greek, but reading through again to review during Exegesis class now. Thought it was pretty good the first time through, and execellent as a resource for review.

It is easy to read and understand which is great for online students who have to do a lot of self teaching. The book also has some online supplements that are helpful as well.

Much more accessible than Lambdin's book for Hebrew, but better geared for aided learning, rather than independent study. Can be overly technical at times.

Well organized, easy to understand, good exercises from both the NT and LXX. You could actually use this grammar to teach yourself NT Greek.
Emma Morgan
This is a great book to use to learn Biblical Greek. Fairly easy to understand and read.

I like Croy's method a lot. Not for a learn it yourself person however.
Ben Laur
Its strength is also its weakness: brevity.
