I am only half way through the book, so far I find the material presented are too concise. It would be more beneficial to me if the material is more detail or thorough. I also find the line spacing are too narrow, that makes it more difficult for one’s ability to understand the materials compares to other texts. Perhaps good for someone that is looking for a refresher, not so much for a new learner.

Great for an intermediate text book on NT Greek.
David Black has a relaxed style and uses some terrible puns, all of which goes to making a complex subject easier to learn.
He covers topics in sufficient depth - and avoids getting bogged down in detail. Every category is backed up with examples from the Greek NT, which is very useful.
I found the chapters on infinitives and participles and clauses especially helpful and worthwhile.

Black's book makes Greek easier for the struggling student. It explains the whys and wherefores of Greek in detail. It not only defines terms, but it gives examples from Scripture, so that the student can know how these grammatical functions work in the text.
