Flashcards have a reputation of being a slow and boring way to study but, studying using flashcards does help students remember information and perform well in their exams.
Below are two reasons why flashcards can help you study smarter
1. Active recall
- When students study, they are attempting to remember the information from just staring at PDFs and their textbooks. Flashcards allow students to engage more with their content and allows for active recall of information they are learning.
2. Confidence in repetition
- Flashcards allow for students to continuously test their own knowledge of the content being examined. By using flashcards to stimulate the memory, students can become more confident when revising their content
Flashcards are an extremely useful and reliable method for students to recall information and become more confident when learning.
