I didn't get in on the discussion about beginner's Greek texts; I do like 
Wenham and have used it several times. But a great text for review and 
"beyond" is Paine's "Beginning Greek" from Oxford. After 38 short lessons 
reading from John, the student is routed into Xenophon's Anabasis and Greek 
is never the same again. My recommendation - Dimitri
