Are you teaching yourself? My Greek textbook is Greek: an Intensive Course by Hardy Hansen and Gerald Quinn. It's pretty good for explaining things. My prof actually just read out loud from it in class and did virtually no extra explaining. Get a lexicon too if you want to read the New Testament. The Liddell and Scott abridged version is good because it gives you more direction than the intermediate version.

The Pimsleur Language series is by far the best way to self-study any language.

Each language will have their own best books. For example, for Russian, the New Penguin Course is bar-none the best, but that's not the case with other languages.

Don't waste your money on Pimsleur. Its often sneered upon.

I recommend finding a good Greek language community online. Ask in their forums. Textbooks are the way to go. That way you get interaction with fellow learners.
