I haven't checked to see if either are available, but there is/was an
answer key for Machen that was done by Ziodhiates (pub. by his outfit: AMG,
1976). I also have an early draft of a workbook for Machen that was done by
David Thompson at Marion College (also 1976). I'd be surprised if either
were still available, however.

A far better choice is to use Bill Mounce's textbook (Basics of Biblical
Greek, Zondervan, 1993) and accompanying workbook. It is far better
pedagogically as well as much cheaper than Machen.
