    I use them for everything at uni. People learn in different ways and do whatever suits them.
    If there's one thing I can't abide, it's a know-it-all who want to tell everyone else how to study, when I have been up since 5am making my flash cards for my next class test. X

    It's a card which flashes at night. It boosts your memory as if "flashing" your brain capability.

    Research has shown that flashcards help. Look it up if you don't believe me.

    I don't think they're uselss if used correctly. I make them using the exam spec so that I know all the information I need to know and don't revise pointless information. Obviously they are no use at helping you with exam question technique but they're great for learning content.

    I use flashcards for all my exam based modules. Past papers are limited and don't have answers, so making up your own questions on all the content and memorising the answers is extremely helpful.
