Having taken a semester of Classical Greek, and currently in the second semester, I've been using this for the entire time. I recommend it.... if you have a good teacher, also. On its own, the book will not give you an intuitive knowledge of the Greek of Athens. As well, some of the exercises are... peculiar. Consider that, in the unit introducing participles, one of the English sentences concerns a cyclops having "consider digestive trouble" because he ate a man. Also in this unit are sentences in English about eating boiled spinach and broiled liver. If life informs writing, someone might have been having a bad day...
TL;DR: This book is good, but not on its own. Try and get a good teacher, and beware of digestive troubles.
