Supplemental exercises/extra practice?

I've been working through the book for the last week I'm finding the need for extra review of the chapters. Is there any way better way to review than returning to the old chapters and going over the vocabulary and grammar again? Are there any other resources I might look to to make review a bit more interesting or thorough -- especially more translation exercises with an answer key?

Scansion of Iliad I.14

στέμματ᾿ ἔχων ἐν χερσὶν ἑκηβόλου Ἀπόλλωνος
Iliad I.14
I cannot figure how to scan this line. All I doubt is that βό in ἑκηβόλου is long. Could someone tell me how to scan this line and why?

Lesson XII: ἀνάσσω, ἁνδἀνω, ἔιρω, φέρω

Hey, all-

I've been working thru the lessons, & have taken some time out to ensure that I really know the vocab up thru Lesson XII completely. It's been helpful for me, in learning verbs' principal parts, to understand the patterns of sound changes. I know that some verbs will just be irregular, & that we might not be able to identify them as part of any pattern. But to the extent that this pattern-finding ...

Pharr and Wheelock - simultaneously?

Hello folks - lurking for a while, brand new as a poster to this wonderful forum.

I have tried to find some fairly consistent experience points, but as I haven't actually seen too much on this, here goes.

I really desire to read both Homeric Greek and Latin, as I tire of reading some much-beloved authors in translation. My "Greek" plan, using Pharr, is to gain some fluency with Homer, then Hesiod, then Lyric poets ...

Difference between ψυχή and θυμός?

According to Pharr, both mean "soul," among other things. I'm having a little trouble understanding the distinction.

Answer Key?

Is there an answer key available for Pharr? I would feel a lot more confident if I could check my translations.

Iliad recorded?

Does anyone know of a recording of all or parts of the Iliad in the original Greek?
How wonderful it would be to listen to someone pronounce all that lovely language who really knows how.

Partially deponent verbs?

I have come across some verbs that seem partially deponent, such as θνήσκω (fut. θανέομαι, aor. ἔθανον) and κιχάνω (fut. κιχήσομαι, aor. ἐκιχησάμην). So the first is regular in the present and aorist and deponent in the future, while the other is regular in the present and deponent in the future and aorist.

What does it tell about the other tenses? I would have guessed that it should remain consistent within the primary/secondary tenses groups, ...

Pharr Lesson XVIII §103 E-G

I'll begin with the first three and continue with the rest later:

1. We have freed the beloved daughter of the priest, because we reverence the free-shooter Apollo.
ἀπολελύκαμεν φίλην θύγατρ' ἱερῆος, οὕνεκ' ἁζόμεσθ' ἑκηβόλον Ἀχιλῆα.

About ἅζομαι: this verb is defective. The vocabulary shows only one form. What does it mean regarding tenses? Does it have all forms in all of them? §898 doesn't seem to be specific about it.

2. All the Achaeans ...
