Question about Syriac Grammars and Learning Tools

What Syriac grammar is the most accessible for learning independently? Any opinions? Does anyone know of pronunciation guides like CDs, and/or other learning tools?

It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I've always liked Nöldeke's classic "Compendious Syriac Grammar" currently available at Amazon. Brockelmann's "Syrische Grammatik" and Uhlemann's "Grammatik der Syrischen Sprache" are great, too, but I am not sure whether there are any English translations available.
Gorgias Press ( has published some learning materials worth taking a look at.
