I seem to be having better luck with Collins' Primer. As has been mentioned by previous posters, I am beginning to see how Scanlon is not well suited for self-study (I'm currently in the middle of chapter 3 of Scanlon). Collins' explanatory notes and especially the vocabulary notes are wonderful... and seem to suit my own personal style of learning (to each his own, I suppose). Scanlon seems to omit too much of what I have thus far found in Collins to be quite helpful. What say ye?

The problem is, we will never go anywhere if we restart the group yet again.  Use either of them as suits you best.  You could use Scanlon as good review if you go through another grammar first.
The greatest of all misfortunes is never to have known Jesus Christ: yet such a state is free from the sin of obstinancy and ingratitude. But first to have known Him, and afterwards to deny or forget Him, is a crime so foul and so insane that it seems impossible for any man to be guilty of it. For Christ is the fountain-head of all good.  --- Leo XIII, Tametsi

My approach is to use them concurrently :)

I posted my answers a week late, but I figured it was worth it since nobody else seemed to have.  Perhaps people could look at my answers and if there is something they don't understand, ask questions about it.  That might be easier than doing the whole thing.
