Rating: 3 out of 5 stars - Neat for reference, not for studying.
I have received several inquiries about this product, since I'm the author of the Flip Flop Spanish series. I'm not at all related to the Kaplan series. But I wanted to get it, so I would be familiar with Flip O Matic to best answer questions I'm receiving. I agree with another review - these are NOT flash cards. It's more just a little perfect bound book, that has great bite-size information on each page. You can't flip it all the way back without breaking the spine, but they do have a little triangle in the corners to dog-ear the pages you have conquered.

However, for study, flash cards are useful so that you can divide up the words you know and you don't know. With this book, you don't see your stack of words getting smaller, and you can't put the ones you need to study on the bathroom mirror. For reference, the information is great - very nicely laid-out. But as a study tool, I would pass.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars - This item is not flash cards!
Although the information and the format is quite good, shoppers should realize that this is not flash cards -- at least not like I knew them while I was studying languages. A flash card is something individual that you pick up. What I was expecting was small cards one could reorganize and carry in a shirt pocket while traveling on the bus or metro. This is a BOOK! Kaplan ought know what a flash card is.

I was really disappointed.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - A good learning tool to build your vocabulary. . .
While taking Spanish classes, the lessons have been turning toward conversational Spanish. My BIGGEST weakness in Spanish conversation is that I don't know enough words to converse in Spanish. I purchased the Flip-O-Matic cards to help build my Spanish vocabulary.

I like using flashcards to learn. When I was in grade school, I used flashcards to learn math. You can find similar Spanish flashcards on the Internet, but the Flip-O-Matic is more convenient and bound so no loose papers to lose. The Flip-O-Matic is also small enough to use anywhere, e.g., on the bus or walking around the park.

The Flip-O-Matic has 360 frequently used words and verbs. The words are shown used in a sentence. Only the most common definition of the word is given.

The only real downside that I've found is that I have to consult my Spanish dictionary (I use the Velazquez Spanish English Dictionary) to know how to pronounce the word. It would have been nice if the book had included a pronunciation guide. I ended up writing in the pronunciation in the book.
