Vocabulary that occurs less than 50 times in the NT is supplied with each lesson, making it easy for the student to dive right in. As well, an introductory paragraph adequately informs the student about the context of the text to be translated.
Each lesson has a built-in 100 point value (though a few have more than that, with some bonus points built into the lesson). The numerical value of each question is listed in brackets, with the constituent elements broken down. Thus, for example, on p.Read more ›

I worked through the WB with a friend last summer and found that it more than prepared me for my Intro to Exegesis course at Dallas Theological Seminary. The WB challenges those who have labored through Wallace's grammar to wrestle with actual syntactical issues throughout the NT. Two of my favorite elements were 1) that it presented a structured context for doing syntax in various areas of the NT and 2) that it did NOT include a key. I was glad that it did not. Too often, as we do course work or personal study, we depend too much upon keys, and they become more of a crutch rather than a help. Without it, the student is forced to wrestle and labor over the syntactical options that he or she has been learning about in the grammar. I would suggest working through the WB first without the key, and then requesting a copy from the appropriate source - either your prof or if you are using the WB for personal study, directly through Zondervan Publishing. I have found Zondervan to be more than accommodating in similar matters. Important note: the answer key is FREE through Zondervan for profs and self learners: email Jesse Hillman at jesse.hillman [at] zondervan [dot] com.
Good studies to you; keep wrestling with the issues!
Since the workbook is designed for an intermediate level, the texts are grouped around syntactical issues. The difficulty steadily increases as one works through the material. Instead of working through a lengthy biblical text and randomly happening upon a syntactical issue, the issues become the framework and example texts are given as case studies. I think this is a great way to tackle NT Greek syntax; since it immerses the student in the text while primarily focusing on the syntax at hand. Furthermore it give a "real life" feel"to working through these issues. At bottom, I cannot think of a better way to regularly involve students in learning Greek syntax. It is a must have for intermediate students.
Educators can get an answer key free of charge from Zondervan. I am glad for this. Otherwise, there would be cheat-sheets running around everywhere. Also, educators can get a free instructor's copy from Zondervan, and if they approve of the text then order their student's copies through Amazon (of course!).
