I have found Warren C. Trenchard's book on NT Greek Vocabulary very good.


The Student's Complete Guide to the Greek New Testament: Complete frequency
lists, cognate groupings and principal parts

Published: 1992 Zondervan - Grand Rapids
ISBN: 031-053-341-4
OCLC: 26767217

This has all the GNT vocab in frequency order (so ho, hn, to is first down
to the words that occur only once.) I have found this very helpful for
learn vocab. I have used the book so much that I finally had to have it
rebound (into a ring binder which is better - the bounding seems to be less
than the best.) Hope this helps.
