Critical Apparatus

New Greek student finding trouble....

Hello, everyone. I just joined this wonderful community today, and I've been taking advantage of the incredible useful resources posted on the site. Kudos for this; it's exactly what I've been looking for. Anyway, I consider myself a student of language, but other than a terrible first-year Latin class, a year of French and two years of Spanish, I don't have much formal training.

Anyone know of Greek Grammar Guides?

I am not sure if anyone knows of those laminated grammar guides for Spanish, French, and German, and other popular subjects - does anyone know if they have one for Ancient Greek? I have even found them for Latin, but not Ancient Greek.

Has anyone made their own small, compact grammar guide on Word or Word Perfect and might be willing to share? Thanks a bunch.
