And don't worry about the text used here. Again, I have used this book a lot along with my NA diglot and I have never had any problems going back and forth. The few times it differs from NA-27 are in footnotes. People make a big deal about this not having a critical apparatus, but this allows the book to get all the defintions in and still be portable.
Now UBS has joined the band wagon and their own Reader's Edition is out. But this one is cheaper, more portable and includes several options for translations whereas the UBS just gives a single word gloss. The UBS does have parsing info, but vocab is the main thing you need. Everyone who reads the Greek NT should have this book, and everyone should read the Greek NT!
I use four version of the scriptures more commonly than others, the Revised Standard Version, the New Revised Standard Version, the Revised English Bible and the New International Version. I still fall back on my beloved King James Version, the version of my youthful reading, and the New English Bible, the predecessor of the Revised English Bible. My desire in improving my NT Greek language skills is to be able to use the Bible in English, in whatever translation, more effectively.
When translating, it is easy to be stalled and even frustrated by rare words or difficult word forms. There are manuals which one can use with one's Greek New Testament that help identify these forms. However, that requires handling more than one book. This volume is a Godsend in that regard. It provides the words and definitions most likely to stump a student at the bottom of the page.
I would add a friendly caveat. The Greek Test presented is eclectic. It conforms to the choices of textual variants chosen by the scholars who translated the New International Version. From time to time it will vary from the Novum Testamentum, 28th Edition, which is the text most commonly used in undergraduate, graduate and seminary biblical language courses. However, the introduction to the book explains why this text was chosen, and it is easy enough to compare the Greek text provided here with other editions of said text. Any inconvenience is minor compared with the value and ease of using the notes and definitions provided passage by passage and page by page.
If you are a new student of the language or one seeking to refresh one's skill, this is a very useful volume. Also, it is bound in really posh Italian leather and feels wonderful. It is nice for a book to be useful and aesthetically pleasing. My cat loves to sit on it when I am not using it because she also thinks it feels good. Cats have excellent taste in texture.
