It's not hard for someone who has no experience, to buy a top Bible codes program and begin doing codes research in a credible way. Even if you have no experience with Hebrew, you can learn as you go, and utilize the bilingual Hebrew-English dictionaries in the software to begin doing your own searches. Of course there is a learning curve involved, but it is not that hard. Link to full article comparing all codes programs.

All three programs come with fonts, texts, and everything you need, including bilingual Hebrew-English dictionaries. They are easy to use, and have tutorials. Even 3 years ago, it used to take hours to do searches, while now with CodeFinder, Keys to the Bible, or Bible Search PRO, it takes seconds or a few minutes. The following speed tests show a few types of representative searches:

Test Computer: AMD XP 2000+ running Windows XP Home with 256 mb of DDR ram.

Test 1: 6-letter term searched in the Torah with an ELS range of -20,000 to 20,000; statistically expected number of matches is 60.2.
Test 2: 4-letter term searched in the Torah with an ELS range of -20,000 to 20,000; statistically expected number of matches is 3132.

 Keys to the Bible  19.5 seconds  61  4.5 seconds  3161

As far as speed goes, CodeFinder: Millennium Edition is fastest and Bible Search PRO is second best.

What becomes of more importance in selecting a codes program, are the additional tools for the user.
