MemLok Video Overview
I have accumulated a number of cards now. When will my cards start showing up less frequently?Research shows 30 independent reviews (different days) is when one can fairly safely start reviewing less frequently. So, the default rotation make that happen. The cards will start moving out to a Weekly rotation schedule soon. If you're curious to see how the rotation works, go to Preferences->Rotation and toward the bottom you'll see Rotation Demo.
I prefer to do long passages.
Fantastic. No problem! When on your Review Screen, click the Edit/Create New Card menu option. Then type, for example; John 14:1-14 in the reference edit box. Click the link: "Bible Study Tools". This opens the Bible Study Tools website from which you can copy your scripture. Then, return to MemLok and paste your scripture into the card editor. There is a 4000 character limit.Watch the video below:
I have lost my review record. How can I can add these verses back.If you've backed up, you're in good shape. If not, hopefully you printed out your Completion Record so you know the order in which you learned them. You can also put your verses (cards if you printed them) in order from oldest to newest and "Accept" them one at a time in the software. MemLok3 auto-backs up for you in the background. Consider backing up to an external source. Consider sending an email to yourself and attach the backed up file to it.
I have learned a lot of verses already and want to load them into MemLok initially.Open the Card Library, browse, and select a card you wish to add to your review list. Click the 'Add to Review List' button at the bottom. You will be shown a confirmation dialog. If you have many cards to add, you might want to turn off the confirmation dialog. Check the box at the bottom. Then, browse for as many cards as you wish to add to your review list. You can use the arrows on the Completion Record to put the cards in any order.
I want to create my own list of verses, and not all are in MemLok.
The Roman Road to Salvation would be a good example of this or, maybe you have a core curriculum at your school. There are two ways to create custom verse lists:
Go to Print Shop/Card List/Custom List/ click on "New" Name it Roman Road. .
On the right hand side, click Add.
Then browse your "Card Library" for the verses below and add them.
Create a new user from the User Manager
Name the user, "Romans Road". Or, 6th Grade
Using the card Library, add the cards to complete the list.
Note that for Method 2 above, you can 'Fix the review list' so that the list is constant. MemLok won't attempt to add weekly cards to it. To fix your review list see the Rotation Parameters tab in the Preferences dialog.
Is there any way I can put the scripture reference on the side of the card with the picture?Most certainly. At least for printing cards. Go to Print Shop, and find a Card design closest to what you like. Click 'New', and give it a name of your choice. Click 'Edit' at the bottom of the card design list. Then, while the front of the card is highlighted (blue box around it), put a checkmark in the 'Reference' box and you'll see the reference appear on the front of the card.I want to my printer to print cards with the pictures on the front, and the scripture on the back.Your printer manages duplexing. MemLok is not able to do that. When you get to Step 4 of Print Shop - read the simple instruction set that is given. When you press 'Print' in step 4, you'll get your printer dialog - this is not MemLok's dialog. Press the properties button. In your printer's properties dialog, you will find an option to print double-sided, or duplex. Select that option.

(While supplies lasts, MemLok notebooks are discounted from $49 to $24.95 - NIV notebooks are gone.)
Can I add my own verses to MemLok?
Yes. You can add or edit verses, pictures and topics too!
What ages use MemLok?
All ages! Every age wants a hint to start the verse. The picture provides it. Mnemonics works! Yes, a seminary with 200 students and a high school with 600 students have proven it.
Can I use MemLok for memorizing long passages?
Absolutely! You can create any memory card you like that contains any scripture text, and any picture association you want. It's easy - below are two suggestions:
Consider breaking up your passage into smaller chunks - each chunk on its' own card so that you can make picture associations to help you remember each part of the passage.
Consider making two review lists. One list to contain long passages, and the other to contain the individual chunks.
There are a lot of Bible Memory systems available - What makes MemLok unique?
We've dedicated an entire web page to answer that! There are many Bible memory programs - some for free. We just believe MemLok is the best.
Can I use MemLok with AWANA or Bible Bee?
Absolutely! Most of AWANA'S verses are in MemLok. You can add the others for AWANA and Bible Bee from within MemLok by typing the reference (John 1) and you'll go directly to an Internet site. Copy. Return to MemLok. Paste! And, ANY translation or language. Plus, you gain DAILY accountability and application with MemLok.
My home school curriculum has memory verses. How will MemLok help?
The review system is what will help the most! Old verses continue to be reviewed from year to year. Yet, the daily review remains 5-10 minutes. You may change curricula. MemLok remains as a constant. Kids love the pictures. It puts a grin on their faces, uses both sides of the brain, and doubles retention. Often memorization is done but application get's left out. "Can you say your verse?" isn't enough. With MemLok, application is part of the process.
How does MemLok compare with THE NAVIGATOR's Topical Memory System?
MemLok will definitely work in tandem with the program, and be a great supplement to your learning.
The differences are:
MemLok is a flip card system using both repetition and recall.
You select the verse you want each week, or add your own, and learn them in any order in MemLok.
With MemLok, you can print any size memory verse card.
Does MemLok help with remembering the reference?
Yes! MemLok will let you choose from a selection of references. Using "Recall" in addition to "Repetition" helps you remember the right one. Recall uses a different part of your brain than Repetition. Also, it is set up so you repeat the reference 4 times (before and after while viewing both the back and front of the card.)
Does MemLok work in my language?
Yes. You can create memory cards of your own, and include whatever scripture text you like on the card. The actual text of the software is in English though.

When I install, it says 64-bit, won't install on my computer!You're trying to install MemLok2 which does not work on a 64-bit operating system. You'll need to purchase MemLok3.
I've lost my code...my computer crashed...I got a new computer...I've lost my CD…No problem. We sure hope you have kept a backup. You can easily retrieve your code again - see "My product unlock code never came".
Can I install MemLok on more than one computer?Yes, MemLok is licensed for a single home and includes all the computers that belong to individuals in your home - including laptops and work computers.
I cannot find the MemLok I downloaded!Press Start/Find/Find Files. Type setup.exe in "Files Named". If you weren't paying attention, and have no idea of the file's vicinity, look on your entire hard drive (usually C:). You might find more than a single "setup.exe". Launch it - if it isn't MemLok, you can always cancel the setup process. Hint - if you see a Date column, you can click Date so the most recent setup.exe is sorted by date.
I click setup.exe and it won't finish installing.Usually this means your virus protection software is trying to protect you. Disable it until you've completed the installation, then enable it again. Often you will find an icon on your taskbar. Right-click it and you may see that option to disable it. Or you may need to go to your Control Panel and look for "Security" or something like that.
I used up my 500 print quota and bought the Print Pack. Now, what do I do?
If you're currently an owner of MemLok and want to add another 500 to your print capacity, do NOT use the code you receive when buying the Print Pack to re-install MemLok. Open your MemLok3 normally, go to Print Shop -> Print Account (upper left) and enter the code you just copied -> Click 'Validate' and you're good to go!
My uploaded URL won't open on my mobile device.
Very few have this difficulty, but some devices require a shorter URL. Go here: http://goo.gl/ type, or paste your long url. The resulting URL will definitely work!
You could also copy paste that URL into your browser. Or, come up with a shorter MemLok user name - your choice. And...in MemLok where you entered your email to upload? Try clicking that link to the right Copy URL. Then, open an email, paste that URL in the email and send it to yourself.
When I click Send Email, nothing happens?
You don't have your computer set to default to your main email client. Go to your computer's Control Panel. Search for Default Programs. Under e-mail, you'll see your favorite program for sending e-mail. Put a checkmark beside it. Save it. That should work!
Open the website link MemLok sends you in an email. At the bottom of the Safari screen you'll see an icon depicting an arrow that looks like it's trying to get away from a square. Tap it. Then tap "Add to Home Screen". Name it MemLok. This will be synchronized with your Windows laptop or desktop. So, you'll only upload once a week, and it will go directly to this bookmark.
