I actually don't, because I wouldn't use such an animal. When as an
undergraduate I learned Hebrew, we used a text in which everything was
transliterated and exercises printed from left to right for the first
half of the book, and then it made the switch to non-transliterated,
right to left text. It was a major jolt and took a few weeks to make
the hurdle.

Greek wouldn't be as bad, since the alphabet is basically recognizable,
and is usually printed left to right. But nonetheless, I think that
learning the letter forms and how to read the Greek alphabet at the
beginning of your study will more than pay off later. That's just my
.02, for what it is worth.
