Don't just take our word for
it. Here are some of the things users and magazine reviewers have said
These are some of the many
comments we receive on our registration cards.
"I wish you could know
how much I use your program! I use it at least once a week in my
classes, and many of my students have me copy my lists for them onto
a floppy and they download the quizzer." S. Shaffer, K-12 teacher,
"I am very impressed
with your service and very thankful for the CD. I am a 64 year old
studying Spanish, and I found your program great for making my own
flashcards, but was delighted to find those on the CD with the spoken
words - - - Thanks again for your kind service--it's quite a different
thing from what we are used to when it comes to software." H.
Wolfe, Miami FL

Globalshareware.com reviewed our quiz only version of Memorize·It
and gave us a 5 star (5 Gold Disk) Award. If you are a skeptic like
me, they do have 3
and 4 star awards as well.
Jerry Pournelle - Chaos Manor
for both Mac and Windows, makes electronic flashcards which can
include art and sound. It also does quizzes. I made 3x5 flashcards
by hand when I was learning things, but I think it's nifty. Recommended.

Do you ever
get tired of drilling math facts or state capitols? Then Memorize·It
is for you! It will flip flashcards for hours on end and never
tire and is specifically designed for those subjects that require
memorization, drill, or review.
Let's say you
want to drill the periodic table of elements. So pretend you begin
with a blank, untitled deck of "cards." Give your deck
a name - table of elements. Type "What does 'Au' stand for?" on
the front of the card. (The answer is "gold." by the way.)
Click "Back" and type the answer.
You can choose
true/false, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, or honor system.
Under the honor system, you answer aloud and flip the computer card
over to see if their answer is correct. It will ask you if you answered
correctly and record how you did. Next time you may want to drill
the cards with a 50 percent or less success rate. Maybe you'll want
to drill only the medium hard ones. You choose.
for new creations are endless. How about a fill-in-the-blank set
for spelling rules? Or make Bible trivia cards.
A set of drawing
tools and a wide range of fill patterns are available to decorate
your works of art. My only complaint is that there are no colors,
so the screen is a bit drab. But wait! You can import pictures (with
or without colors) and text, add sound to your cards, or import word
files, using a specific format.
What happens if
you get tired of computer drilling? Print them on plain sheets of
paper or Avery index cards of various sizes. Cut or separate at the
perforations. Now you can do it the old-fashioned way.
Sample decks come
with the program and include: Spanish, German, and French with sound;
art history; math; chemistry; U.S. capitals; vocabulary and more.
Side-Eight also offers a catalog with pre-designed decks on disk
won't make flashcards more fun than a day at the beach, but if you
need to drill, then do it the high-tech way.

Exams test you
on what you recall, what you understand about what you recall, and
how you can work with what you recall. Each aspect has at its core
your recall, i.e., your memory.
is the mother of learning, one way to build your recall is by testing
over and over again. One approach to that is by using flashcards:
those you make up yourself, canned ones or software created ones.
Here's a look
at a combination software canned cards approach to develop and strengthen
What is Memorize·It?
is a multimedia flashcard application that allows you to create your
own decks of flashcards incorporating sound, text, pictures, drawing
and even video. Using several testing methods: Multiple Choice, True/False,
Type-in and Honor System, Memorize·It can be used for any
subject from preschool to medical school. Cards can be easily moved
between decks or copied to build new decks. Interactive quizzing
with Memorize·It tracks your hardest cards so you can focus
on those areas for greater efficiency. Decks can be printed front
and back on five styles of perforated card stock paper. By using
a program like this you can study or teach any subject. Memorize·It
allows you to easily create the cards with exactly the information
you need to study.
For example, an
English word (with sound) is on one side and a foreign language equivalent
(with sound) is on the other. This allows you to see the spelling
as well as hear the pronunciation. You can flip over the deck and
quiz from foreign language to English. The sound input device is
used to annotate each card with sound. You can even import word processing
files to expedite creating decks. (Have you used your microphone
for anything useful yet?) You can print them on four different sizes
of Avery perforated paper (and regular paper). The flashcard data
files are interchangeable on the Macintosh and Windows platforms
- a truly cost saving approach.
Creating your own flashcards
In most cases,
creating the flashcards with Memorize·It is faster than doing
it by hand! All the tools you need are included to quickly create
your own flashcards. Card editing features allow you to place pictures,
text, drawing, sound and video on any card. All the standard drawing
tools and patterns are also included.
The second way
to create whole decks is by using a word processor. You create a
text file with all the cards included and import the file into Memorize·It.
All the cards are created automatically and Memorize·It centers
all the text for you.
