its to test yourself and repeat, the repetition commits it to your long term memory, put the question on on side and the answer on the other

I use flash cards by organising things into paragraphs, and then writing one word of each sentence onto the flashcard. Then I repeat the paragraph over with the key words until I know it from heart

Just a way of making condensed notes for me, but easier to sort out the key points and keep reducing them.
