In my review of the Dillard set, I stated that I liked it the best. I still think I do, but I might have been reacting a bit to what I thought was an unfairly negative review of the Dillard cards by one reviewer. The same reviewer in a shorter review of the Van Pelt and Pratico cards says the Dillard set is "plain awful." I strongly disagree. Basically, the two sets are quite similar: Hebrew on one side and English on the other. There would not be many people who could learn from one but not from the other. But in this review, I will highlight the advantages of the Van Pelt and Pratico set, which I will call Van Pelt for short.
Van Pelt cards are keyed to four Hebrew grammar texts: one by Van Pelt and Pratico themselves, and the others by Futato, Ross, and Seow. I'm not using those at the moment, but if I were that would be very helpful. Some of the cards have some ancillary information such as alternative spellings and irregular plurals (but in smaller print).Read more ›
lack of an index sheet for those of use who need to find cards out of the order they were numbered in, and the cards 'flip' sideways rather than over.
They outshine the Vis-ed series because the Hebrew font is more readable, and the order is more practical for students who use a modern textbook. If you need and will use vocab cards, these are the ones to buy.
One of the drawbacks was not having an index to the cards so that you could easily find a particular card, but today on the [...] website I found a "hidden" link to the Index for this list!!! VERY helpful! I've been searching for this kind of thing for a long time! Here's the link: [...]
I'll start with the obvious: no roots on the cards, no transliteration (which would be a big help for pronunciation). Then I find missing cards, and duplicates (same word, different numbers)! (one duplicate so far) Sometimes the number is on the left corner, sometimes on the right. (most are consistent, but not all). And why not print them so that flipping them up, instead of to the side gets you to the reverse?
Here's what is really irritating - there is no way to find the cards for your particular chapter except to riffle through the whole deck of 1000 to find the ones you want! Yes, I know there is an alphabetical index .pdf file which can be downloaded. I took the trouble to download and print this. And what did I find? NONE of the numbers on the index that I looked at were correct! Incredible. (example: the index gives "torah" as card 201, but the actual card number is 40)
C'mon Zondervan, why do you sell such a shoddy product? These cards are not worthless, I'm dealing with the issues and do find some value here. If a real index was offered, I'd give 2 more stars. I can't believe someone went through the trouble to create a detailed index, with all wrong numbers. Did I maybe just get a bad (misprinted) box?
