Since the best way to learn a new tool is to use it, we've developed ten easy sessions to familiarize you with the various features of WinFlash Basic, Scholar and Educator. While we hope that you'll eventually try all of the exercises, simply completing the first one will show you all of the steps needed to create useful text-based study files!
Just click on the appropriate topic below to start learning WinFlash!
1. Your First WinFlash Study File - Create a new study file and quickly develop a small, text-only review of New England's state capitals.
