[b-greek] Noun Accenting

I am beginning to study the New Testament Greek language and have a
question about a word that is used in a book that I am using as a guide.
The book is entitled, "New Testament Greek For Beginners" by J. Gresham

My question is this...in the case of a noun, is the ultima..."pi, omicron,
sigma" ( pos) long or short? He says that the ultima is long, but this
confuses me drastically. Can anyone help? I'm just trying to grasp the
accenting rules before I attempt to move on to any more difficult.
