Read here how to make the best flashcards step-by-step. From a thick book to a handy stack of learning cards that you can take with you everywhere.
Read the text carefully a few times, so you know how much you have to learn and what you have to learn.
Highlight the most important definitions, keywords and key phrases. These form the basics of your flashcards
Write the definition or keyword on one side of the flashcard, and the meaning on the other side. Don’t forget: make it fun!
Make learning more fun!
It always starts with going through the subject matter, be it a complete book, a chapter, a summary or a list of words. You must know what to learn before you know how to learn.
We prefer to go through the material twice. The first time globally, so you get a feeling about of the quantity and structure.
The second time, we start working more intensively and start marking definitions, key-phrases or other important items. See step 2.
After you’ve read the text for the first time globally, start again and now read more closely. In this step you create the foundation for your flashcards. Mark every important definition, term, key-phrase, formula or anything else.
The key is to shift through the subject matter and distinguish the important stuff from the unimportant stuff. So be critical and don’t mark everything, just the parts that matter.
You can now transfer the terms, words, definitions or key phrases from your book (or from your summary) that you have marked onto flashcards.
This is the example of making flashcards when it comes to a lot of learning work, for example for an exam. But you can use them for many more things. Think of formulas, schedules, question & answer and mutual connections.
