I'm looking to start making flashcards for revision of each of my leaving cert subjects and I was wondering would any of you have tips to do this? Do any of you have pointers that you didn't figure out till it was too late? Thanks in advance.
I was actually wondering the same thing. In 5th year I made some history ones but they were covered in writing and were basically the book information written small on a card. My teacher this year suggests that when making cards you put the name of the topic on one side and then keywords/headings on the other. Flashcards shouldn't be a means of learning all the information, they should be a means of testing yourself. You should see the keyword and all the info should come back to you and you should be able to talk about it, let me know if you have any tips yourself
