    Yes/no and why?
    Yes as I find if I write notes out again in short form it sticks in my head and I actually retain the information then if I was to sit with a textbook.

    I would, but I'll just lose them so I won't ever have a full set for every subject.

    No, I make the flash cards but never really look at them. I just prefer to look at my notes.

    Yes i find them very helpful. You can summarize your notes without having to carry a bunch of papers around with you before the exam. They are small, so they'll fit in your bag ( or even pockets!) and take out 10 minutes before the exam to revise.

    I find them helpful to condense my notes and then I can apply them to mind maps etc. For Philosophy they are so useful as I can just write an argument per card and memorise them instead of looking at overwhelming mind maps/notes.
