This is one of the two big (about 1000 cards/words) sets of pre-made Biblical Hebrew flash cards readily available for purchase on Amazon. Recently I reviewed the other set, the Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary Cards by Dillard, which sell on Amazon for $12.95. The Old Testament Hebrew Vocabulary Cards by Van Pelt and Pratico (part of the Zondervan product line) sell for $17.95, a bit more. As I noted in my review of the Dillard set, if I were still a starving college student, the five dollar difference alone might have inclined me toward Dillard. Now that I've got a real job in the real world, I sprung for BOTH of them. I have been using both of them in my personal study of Hebrew and I like them both, though each is a little different from the other with different strengths.

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).

I've been using these cards to great effect for some months now in tandem with the Pratico/Van Pelt Grammar (which is very good). They're great cards, with one major problem: not all them are properly keyed to the Pratico Grammar. The cards are organized by frequency, and a few words here and there will have a disparity between what's in the book and what's on the cards. This problem isn't a big deal when you're dealing with the high frequency words (as the jump in frequency will be larger from word to word) but when a rarer word isn't keyed correctly it can be very difficult to find. This oversight is especially infuriating because both the cards and the book are put out by Zondervan. The problem may be due to different editions (I can't think of anything else that would cause it) but it's still unacceptable. The cards are still definitely worth the money, but know that you're going to be getting angry at them from time to time.

These cards are well printed, with clear Hebrew fonts. The cues to various [Christian Hebrew] textbooks may be useful; the OT wordcount cues are definitely helpful. Two problems limit the usefulness:
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.

Hebrew is difficult enough - and then there are those itty-bitty tiny dots in the textbooks and related material. The cards have large symbols - allowing the ability to finally tell the difference between and r and a d....and so-on. I'm just beginning and they've already been a tremendous help.

I love this card set. It is very helpful that it is keyed to several different grammars. The font is great, and the frequency counts are helpful.

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: [...]

These cards are designed to work with 4 different Hebrew grammar books. I can only comment on how they work with Seow's book, since this is the one being used in my class. Yes, they are useful (if you don't want to make your own), but I feel compelled to give this product a 1-star rating because of its drawbacks.

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?
