May 26, Brad Atchison rated it liked it 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. Pros: -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.

Pros: -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. He does well at the start but having to learn a few different stems in one chapter is quite challenging especially if you have to do chapters a week , along with learning the vocab.
If he include specific parsing exercises, it would have made learning much easier when it comes to learning my vocab words. Perhaps it was also due to having to learn this in ten weeks. Concerns on product non-bearing on review : - The book has really poor binding and is very flimsy. I never received a CD. From what I understand though, what was on the CD is now what is assessable online. Overall: If you are taking classes where you will have interaction with your professor and other materials, Croy is great.
But from my experience, this is a poor book to use when trying to learn Greek on your own. I would have given it a 2 star but I realize that some of my bias is due to the time frame of the course I had to take, not the book. So overall, I am giving this book 3 stars.
