An extra tip. If you like, you can use the method above along with the lessons and with My Vocab to export the text and audio. Then, you can use www.memrise.com to create your own personal course to help you memorize.
The memrise site has an iPhone and iPad app that then allows you to download the material offline and study it. Their application is very beautiful and functional and gives you another way to study the materials provided here at Rocket Languages.
Maybe was can ask for permission to create a course on memrise for members here and everybody can help to add and correct the materials we put on memrise. If somebody at Rocket Languages can take time to manage the sharing rights, they can provide access to the memory tools available on that site as a bonus learning tool without needing to develop and maintain their own iPhone application.
What is nice about memrise, is it allows you to also upload your own memory technique (called a "mem"). They give guidelines to make these effective, but let's say we want to learn the case system in German. We can take the phrases in the case lessons, we can upload them with the audio from Rocket Languages (or create our own audio) and we can attach to each phrase the grammar subject that goes with the phrase. How cool is that? From my iPad, I just snap a screenshot of the case table, I open Skitch and add a circle around the case I want to study, and I upload all the phrases that include that case. Then while I study them, I can test myself.

Terrific idea, Jason. I hope Rocket Languages takes up the idea.

I LOVE it! Once I figured out how to add my vocab from here, into my own personalized course on memrise, it's great!! I can study my giant vocab list, test myself, and it keep track of words I have trouble with.
Memrise makes it feel like I won't lose track of all my prior difficult words and phrases, and since I'm in the Platinum level French, it's nice to have somewhere else to study what I've learned (and it's mobile on my phone too, so I hop on there when I have down time waiting in the car for my kids at their various extra-curricular things.)
Can't tell you how glad I am that I found memrise. :D
