The book is ok but without exercise it is not as useful as I thought it would be. The author has said that the exercise are coming soon but he has said this for a very long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent digest. 15 Aug. 2012
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author has laid out the many, many rules and even more exceptions of Classical Greek grammar in a clear, concise, and easy to follow style. This book works best as a refresher course and as a quick reference for someone who already has some acquaintance with Classical Greek but does not want to go poring through a more ponderous reference grammar such as Smyth, which although a masterpiece, can be quite intimidating. The format and sequence of presentation is logical and easy to navigate. The information is dense, fast-paced, and will be confusing for the total beginner; this is not the fault of the author but simply the nature of the language. The material has been streamlined as much as is possible while still remaining a useful reference on Greek grammar. For someone completely new to Greek learning on their own, I would recommend using this book in conjunction with a more slow-paced introductory text. For someone taking a course, this book is perfect to have on hand from the beginning. In all, the author did a great job with this book and it is well worth the price. I look forward to Dr. Coderch's forthcoming books on Latin grammar and the accompanying exercise book, which will make it much easier to practice and retain the information presented in this grammar!

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern and useful manual. 12 July 2012
By STYLIANOS SMYRNAIOS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very valuable handbook for both teachers and for students of ancient Greek language. With simple and orderly manner and use of many examples, gives the grammatical and syntactical structures of the Greek into English. Congratulations to the author's deep knowledge and most importantly it gets to teach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, clear Greek grammar 30 Mar. 2015
By Harold jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the best books to use to learn or to review Greek grammar. Very clear and above all succinct. As an MD with an MA in Latin- Greek, I have found this writer one of the finest grammarians of the classical languages. The book reguires close, careful reading and the examples used to illustrate the rules of grammar very well chosen. A book even for those with even a cursory knowledge of ANY grammar!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and to the point 2 July 2016
By BVasconcelos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I own several grammars of ancient greek and this one is by far the friendliest to use. It is a great addition for the library of any student of ancient greek.

If I need an authoritative source for a paper I can always go to Smyth, Goodwin or Schwytzer; but if I need to learn or clarify some point of grammar I think Coderch's work is much more to the point and easier to understand.

This is, by far, the most clearly written Greek grammar I've been able to study. The service by the dealer has been completely satisfactory. I'll continue to use your site for my needs.
