To me, Machen is a useful source of tables and summaries, but nothing you 
could teach yourself with. Mounce is much more tutorial and approachable. 
The one irritating thing about Mounce is his theological summaries at the 
beginning of each chapter, especially since some of them seem to imply that 
a Greek text says more than I think it says.

If you want my take on some first year grammars, see the Little Greek home 
page in my signature.
