I would probably rather not be doing this, so I'm doing a lot of work on the side. You will probably only learn about 1-3 new things each chapter until you get to the last few, although the quantity of exercises will pretty much ensure that you understand whatever you were unclear of previously.
And yes... my Wheelock book is delapidated, and so is everyone else's in my class!

It might be good to quickly go through the chapters of M&F, unless you want to study A&G like me ;) There's always learning from literacy, but that can be frustrating and you might not know what you are overlooking.
