How do you use them properly? People always seem to use them for definitions and things like that. How would you revise the other important stuff which cannot be done on flashcards?

Yes they are helpful for key words and definitions however you could put a sample question on one side and then the answer on the other

1. create a timetable and plan all your days from here to the exams (tips here https://www.kent-teach.com/Blog/post...-learning.aspx)
1.1. study more than one subject/topic per day because it's better to do small chunks than loooong periods on the same thing
1.2. study the same subject/topic again a few days later. You'll always forget stuff, so if you revise again, your memory gets stronger

2. use visual elements
2.1. things are harder to understand when it's only words.
2.2. examples: mind maps, colour coding, timelines, diagrams 3. practice questions

3.1. you`ll learn so much more if you test your memory than if you are simply passively reading notes
3.2. flash cards, past papers, and revision websites such as www.senecalearning.com (great and free!) or tassomai (good but not free)

Hope that helps! If you want more details, look for The Learning Scientists blog, they are actual scientists and have a podcast giving revision tips to students
