Keeping it simple: Buy these cards!

Zondervan's Greek vocabulary cards are dramatically superior to the VisEd cards. The printing is in a large easy to read font and the card size is just right. For those familiar with the VisEd vocab cards, these are about 1/4 of an inch higher and about 1/4 of an inch narrower. This makes the cards much easier to hold and flip through.

Mastering the vocabulary on these cards is absolutely essential to reading the Greek NT. One of the "lies" I was told in Seminary was that you only needed to learn those words used 50 times or more. If you follow that advice, you will need to carry a dictionary with you everywhere you take your Greek NT. The joy and usefulness of NT Greek depends on your memorising all the words used 10 or more times in the NT - and these cards from Zondervan make it easier than ever to do just that.

I have been amazed at how helpful Mounce's Greek flash cards have been. Actually, this is my second set of cards because I previously used the cards that came with Parson's Greek Tutor software. In fact, the usefulness of the Parson's cards led me to buy Mounce's much larger set.

Mounce's cards are both more numerous (a thousand instead of about 150) and more detailed listing different word forms and word frequencies in the NT. Mounce's cards also tie in with his grammar book.

My cheerfulness about the cards arises because I can review a few words in time that is normally lost. I leave the cards next to my computer and pick them up when I am waiting for the computer to boot or download. They also good for reviewing when you are stuck on the phone for long periods of time.

More to the point, reviewing these cards has helped me focus on vocabulary independent of text. I am prone to skim over NT passage with an interlinear text and be too easily content to know the gist of the sentence than the meaning of particular words outside the context. The cards help me focus on that weakness in my study.

I wish I had ignored the advice of my Greek professor and purchased these cards from the outset of my second year of Greek. These cards are great for vocabulary memorization and review. A great feature is the size of the cards (different and easier to handle than the Vis-Ed cards) and the inclusion of the principal parts on the verb cards. Buying a set of these would have saved me a lot of unnecessarily spent time creating my own cards (I have a wife and four kids and better things to do with my time). Fortunately, for the rest of the year I can do other things with the extra time I'll save.

These cards are great for learning vocabulary. However, William Mounce, as part of his "system" for learning verbs, stresses the exact memorization of verbal roots as the key to recognizing all the different tense stems. For verbs, these cards list all the different tense stems that occur in the NT, but no verbal roots. In fact, "Basics of Biblical Greek" (the textbook) does not include the verbal roots for any verbs other than those occuring more than 50 times in the NT. Maybe memorization of the roots is not really essential. While it's not a show stopper by any means (you can usually figure out the root) if you are really trying to use the Basics of Biblical Greek "system" for learning verbs these cards lack a key component. Perhaps this is a way to get us all to purchase the Mounce morphology book.

I am just starting out on a journey to teach myself NT Greek and I purchased a set of these cards without also purchasing the author's text. I strongly suggest you get both, as the cards are much more useful with the text, to which they are indexed.

I must also not that these cards are NOT printed to flip in the most logical way, top edge back to reveal the English translation of the Greek word. Instead, they must be flipped the more awkward side edge to the back to reveal the properly positioned English.

I was also just a bit disappointed that there was no more complete information on the parts of speech on the cards, but then, I expect that will all be revealed in the text, which I have just ordered.

While these vocabulary cards are not an essential to learning Greek, it is a great help. With 1000 words, it beats having to write you own cards, and offers frequency of appearance of each word, along with the genitive case ending. They have been worth every cent.

The entire study package of Basics of Biblical Greek which includes the textbook, the study guide, the vocabulary cards, the summary sheet, and the lecture CD's is a blessed fruit of a long, thoughtful, meticulous, and high-tech labor of one of the world's best New Testament Greek scholars. I have to admit I have not studied Greek from other professors, but after studying Mounce, I simply can not imagine a better way to teach students an introduction to Biblical Greek than the one Prof. Mounce implements in this study packet. The structure and methodology are so impressively organized that I believe, without trying to diminish the role of an instructor, one can study by himself or herself without taking the class at a seminary. From start to finish, Prof. Mounce designs the lessons with solid exegesis skills as the goal in mind. He wastes no time but immediately exposes students with translation exercises using real Scripture passages in the study guide, even early in the first few chapters when he barely starts with nouns.

The lessons are divided into three major parts; nouns, adjectives and verbs. Each chapter begins with exegetical insights related to the topic being taught in that particular chapter. He then moves on by explaining the English and Greek forms. The nouns and adjectives are not too bad. They are usually divided into three types of declensions. While the nouns usually take on one of the three declensions, the most common configuration of adjectives is either 3-1-3 or 2-1-2 where the first, second and third numbers indicate the declension type for masculine, feminine and neuter genders, respectively. There are some discussions on special-case nouns having slightly abnormal endings; pant and ent, for examples.
