2008 ! (at least that's what it says on Amazon)

Are you guys using this reading course? Is it any good and how does it compare to Pharr?
The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.

This link to the publisher is advertising the book for sale atm.

I am not using this course myself until I get my copy of the key. I shall begin then, having been convinced by various threads on this forum of the value of beginning with Homer.

I talked to Focus' sales department, and the reprint of the key will be available on April 1st, 2007. The date on Amazon is just a mistake.

For more info, go to the Focus store

http://www.focusbookstore.com./index.as ... ProdID=560

and Amazon is already accepting pre-orders

I've given my opinion of this book, and Pharr's, on this thread

and ten lessons later I still feel the same way.

im thinking about getting this book as a general help in my greek studies... anything that i quiet dont fully understand in pharr i could read about in this one... is that a bad idea?

also i was under the impression there was a 'book 2' aswell... or is it just the one text book and the key (book 3)?...

Will Focus publish Volume 2?
Yes. It is in the works with a tentative publication date of 2008. The second volume is designed to be appropriate for a second year college text in reading Homer for those who have had a first year background in Attic Greek..


I don't think you'll need volume 2 once you complete 1, you should be able to read Homer with the aid of a dictionary or Homeric Vocabularies

For some weird reason Amazon took some time to correct the release date to the key, despite e-mails I and the publisher sent them. It's now available.

I would do exactly the opposite, use Schoder and consult Pharr.

also i was under the impression there was a 'book 2' aswell... or is it just the one text book and the key (book 3)?...


There's book 2 as well (2nd ed only), besides book 1 and the Teacher's Manual/Key. You'll find it used with some ease. The first book (2nd edition, not 3rd) is hard to find.
