All the above manuals are reflected in these notes. Students considering purchasing a book on Greek Grammar are probably best to leave the "oldies" behind, although Dana and Mantey's manual is worth having. Brooks and Winbery is a simple beginner, while Porter is good at explaining the workings of Greek Syntax. Wallace is the master of detail in simplicity and there is no other modern manual to challenge his supremacy in this department.
