They have a box labeled "Winners Gallery" to the left on the page with the
alphabet in it so you can choose a list of products beginning with that
letter, of course, V did not work! I choose U instead and went up into the
url and changed the U to a V and clicked GO. That worked. This is a neat
trick if you are reading an online book with multiple chapters and one link
is not working or the "go to next chapter" hyperlink is dead. Figure out how
the urls progress from chapter to chapter and make the modification in the
url and GO.
For instance, at http://www.newble.co.uk/anderson/texts/texts8.html is
chapter eight of a book. At the bottom of each chapter is a hyperlink
Chapter Seven etc. which takes you to the next chap. Well, the above page
has Chapter Nine at the bottom which is a dead link. I changed the above url
to http://www.newble.co.uk/anderson/texts/texts9.html and clicked GO which
took me to chapter 9. Each chapter progressed: "texts1", "texts2",
"texts3", etc for each chapter, so I changed "texts 8" to "texts9".
As far as flash card programs go, QuickMem Greek is very useful but I prefer
VocabWorks because I can follow along as I listen to "Vocabulary Words For
New Testament Greek" read by Jonathan T. Pennington. I copied the two CD set
onto my notebook and now I can see and hear the words together when I
review. Both use Wenham's vocab lists. Mounce's and Dobson's vocab lists can
be downloaded as well for VocabWorks.
