Flashcards use both sides of the card so you can test yourself by checking you know what’s on the reverse side.
Revision cards are often larger than flashcards. This means they can contain more detailed information and key points can be emphasised with colour or highlighting.
The TSR flashcard tool is designed to help you make great online flashcards. You can test yourself online or print and fold them to make two-sided cards.
You can make revision cards on TSR too. Use different fonts, colours and formatting to make the key information really stand out. You can print these for maximum value.
If you’d prefer to use existing sets of flashcards and revision cards then TSR has thousands of sets covering every subject at every level. You can search for revision cards, flashcards or both
How TSR members use flashcards and revision cards
• Examples of how you can use flashcards:
key terms definitions
date what occurred
name what they said
• Make your revision cards memorable and easy to read by using different colours and highlighting.
• Go through each card in turn. Place them in one of three piles according to whether you know them, partly know them or don’t know them at all. Focus on the cards you don’t know and partly know – try to move cards from pile to pile until they are all in the ‘known’ pile.
