Make Your Own Flash Cards

You can make your own flash cards in any subject if you are struggling with specifics of that subject. But what exactly are flash cards? Flash cards are widely recognized as a brilliant educational tool for memorizing things. You can go out and purchase some pretty impressive and easy to use flash card sets but a lot of people pick the cheaper option to make your own flash cards.

Do you remember the types of cards you 'dad' would use to label and file the various VHS copies that were hanging around the living room. These cards are referred to as 'Index cards' and they were usually came with those nasty little plastic book binder cases that made the VHS tapes look like hardback books ( very tacky! ).

These index cards are perfect if you want to make your own flash cards. They are basically lined cards with a larger header. The idea of these cards is that students can simply write the question on one side and the answer on the opposite side and test themselves repeatedly. This really does work. When I was younger I attended two music universities and went through my fair share of exams and tests.

During this time I used to take flash cards on the tram or bus to University with me to brush up my learning ( work cramming ) first thing in the morning. I used the index card type as I was a student and could not afford to purchase any. Another way to make your own flash cards is to use computer generated flash cards.

These again, can either be paid for or done using a free offer from a website. This is a great way to make your own flash cards if you fancy jazzing up your cards a bit - making them more interesting. Flash cards work best with the question on the front and then you write the answer on the back. A lot of students ( including myself ) found the most beneficial part of using the cards was the writing of the answer on the back.

This is a well known way of getting facts and figures to stick inside your head. Always make sure you use wipe clean pens to write the answers so the cards can be reused again and again. Anyway, there is no wrong or right way to use make your own flash cards or use them for that matter - what works for some students will not for others.
