This is THE standard 2nd+ year grammar. For all intents and purposes, it's to be used immediately upon finishing the Mounce 1st year curriculum. Though, generally this is pushed to 3rd year as the abridged version is now often considered the 2nd year. Ultimately, it's the footnotes are what make it 3rd year and put it in a class of its own.

The one and only problem with the Accordance version is the lack of an index. Indexing has been, is now, and always will be more profitable than blind searching.

The index is a Scripture index with bold text in places where the text goes into depth. For years, I've been using the index as the STARTING point of teaching a lesson. Usually, I start with the text, but sometimes starting with the INDEX is the way to go. For example: "What parts of John 2 have special emphasis in this grammar?" This changes the entire flow of a month of lessons.

With Accordance? This is gone. Thus, while the text is the best-in-class (well, ONLY in class as it stands in a class of its own), the Accordance implementation of it is extremely flawed.
