I have used this book for second semester classes in Biblical Greek and as a guide for review in second year Greek. It has worked well in both contexts.
The first section of the book lists words by their cognate group and is obviously the section to use in order to rapidly build a working vocabulary. Trenchard also lists the frequency of occurence of each word in this section, so students can decide which words are most important to memorize at first (however, with the cognate approach, it's easier to memorize many words that occur infrequently as well). Following this section is another section that lists words only by their frequency, from most frequent to least frequent.
The third major section provides the principal parts of all the verbs in the GNT. It is best used for review or for reference on those occasions when your mind just goes blank. If you are not careful, however, you will come to rely on this section as a crutch and will likely never memorize the principal parts of all verbs. Again, when used as intended, this section is valuable, but if you let it become a crutch, then it will actually become an impediment to learning Greek verbs.
Trenchard also provides a list of all proper nouns, which (for reasons I've never yet been able to figure out) tend to be omitted from a great many lexicons. He also has a catch-all section of 'Other Lists' that provides number words, Aramaic words, Hebrew words, and a slew of other useful items.
This is the definitive book for students who are building their NT Greek vocabulary. If you find this volume to be a valuable tool, then check out Trenchard's "A Concise Dictionary of New Testament Greek" as well (see my review of that book for more information).
The fact that all prepositions and their definitions are listed in one place is worth the price of this book by itself! You will find this list is near the very back of the book, along with a list of all counting numbers used in the NT (why not add the few more?). Proper nouns are listed in the back, which I find quite interesting. In fact, I have found the lists in the back section of the book more interesting than anything else at this point.
This book is so well organized that I can pick it up daily and review; yes, it now has a permanent place in my bathroom!
Why only four stars? There is one page that did not print well in the frequency lists (down around pi-words occurring only once in the NT). The Greek words themselves are obscured. I will consult other sources to reconstruct the list, since it will be too painful to return the book.
