But note that Gramcord uses the Bible Companion Software framework, and you
can buy other study aids for it or simply buy the teacher's edition, which
comes with many aids. This is what I use. The most useful aid for me is the
online grammar notes, which is sort of like a help system for interpreting
Greek syntax.

I have 21 Bible translations, 15 commentaries, 4 lexicons, and 9 "topics",
which all came with the Teacher's Edition. Unfortunately, the BAGD and
Louw/Nida lexicons are not on this CD.
