[B-Greek] Suggestions for self-teaching Greek

If I were stranded on a desert island with
  a Greek New Testament that I could not
  read and I could only bring two grammars, 
  classical or NT, I would bring two copies of
  Machen's "New Testament Greek for
  Beginners," in case one got wet.
  Dr. Buth in a recent post said that all 
  Greek grammars work equally well
  except they don't work.  I think he is
  at least half right. 
  May God bless and keep you in
  your self study of His words and Word!

  Hello All,

I've been lurking here for a couple of weeks now and I have a question. I
want to learn Greek (hence my lurking here), but don't know the best place
to start.

Basically I want to learn on my own right now with an eye toward taking a
more formal course later. I've looked at a lot of different materials, but
I'm just not sure where to start. I don't want to end up backing myself
into a corner where I have to unlearn or relearn when I move on.

Originally I was leaning toward Mounce's materials, but then discovered
Athenaze, but I did't know if that would be suitable for self-study. Would
you recommend either of those or is there something else that would be

Thanks for your help.

By Faith and in His Grace,
