Mounce Tips?

Postby Geoff » Thu Jan 06, 2005 3:24 pm

Just curious,

For those who are using or have used Mounce's BBG,

1) What did you consider the faults of the book?

2) What was the most difficult Chapter?

3) What Kind of Pace did you keep (whether in a school or self study)?

Thanks

1) What did you consider the faults of the book?

I think it would be a good idea if more vocabulary had to be learned rather than only the ones that occur 50x or more in the NT.

2) What was the most difficult Chapter?

I am not sure if I found any one chapter, the most difficult.
As you progress you find that the ones you have done, seem easy,but the one you are working seems confusing.

3) What Kind of Pace did you keep (whether in a school or self study)?

I did about 1 chapter per week untill about chapter 21-22. After that probably 2 every 3 weeks.

Thanks

We didn't use Mounce, but I believe in the first year we also did only down to 50x. In the following years we went all the way down to 10x, plus the vocab of the various books we studied.
