Reading Greek: Text by Joint Association of Classical TeachersThis is the text volume that goes along with the Grammar and Vocabulary volume -- they could very well be incorporated into one volume, and perhaps they should be. (Both volumes, and the Independent Study Guide, are essential.)
But the texts are the key to Reading Greek, so maybe there is a pedagogical reason (obviously unknown to me) for presenting them in a separate volume.
The early readings are heavily adapted for the beginning student, but they are rooted in the original texts, which makes this approach far more rewarding than translating sample exercises. From the start youre looking at Demosthenes, Plato, and Aristophanes -- and by the middle of the course you have enough Greek to get the jokes in Aristophanes that are nearly untranslatable into English. That is worth the price of admission alone.
As I mentioned in my comments on the Grammar and Vocab volume, this is not the easiest way to learn Ancient Greek, and is probably not for the absolute beginner. But it is great fun if you have the foundation in place.
