Yes I do, that is if you mean the paradigms. What I do is go to his site and look at the teachers pack and slides. In the slides he has all those charts and all you have to do is print them. He also has the answers to the Workbook, which is a plus after you go through the book or chapter on your own, then see how you did. Here's the link, if you don't have it.
My main ones are the full master case ending from chapter 10, all those person charts, ie relative pronouns third person AUTOS, basicaly most of those from chapter 10 to 14. I also print every chart he does when doing the verb tenses, LU + W, LU + EIS from chapter 16 you'll see in the slides he has a chart for each tense form. The final four ending from chapter 21 is very important and the Master verb chart from chapter 25.
We hit short of a milestone in our class, we are at chapter 21, I am amazed how far we came and how much we've learned. I can actually see some sentences or verses and read them almost as good as reading english. It's starting to happen, it's a great payoff from such a hard job as this is. This is for sure the most intense thing I've ever tried to do.
Best with your studies John and the rest of you also!
