WHAT IS IT?
Leveraging three cognitive principles—active recall, metacognition, and spaced repetition— flashcards help you learn TWICE as efficiently as any other study method.
Flashcards are hands-down the most effective way for motivated learners to study and retain factual knowledge, especially when the flashcards are used properly. And there are good scientific reasons for this. Flashcards are effective because they make you pull information out of your memory (instead of just reading or recognizing it), and this helps you build memories quicker and perform much better on tests.
