Tips and Tricks for Studying

Flash Cards

One of my favorite tools for study are the infamous flashcards. They are simple and effective. Not only do you learn as you flip through them, you also learn while your create them. Flashcards are a tried and true method of learning. If you are always on the go and want to bring your cards with you, they can become pretty discombobulated. Thank goodness for smart phones and the app developers for solving this problem. Check out the links' below for great tools while studying. One of my favorites is Quizlet. You can you create flashcards but the website/app will quickly and effectively create practice quizzes and games with the information you provide! Wait I thought we were studying here not playing games?
