I found that one really good way to do it was to write a key term or name of a study on one side, then on the other write a few short prompts about it, and then try and recall what it was just from those prompts. It could also help to make a glossary of the terms and studies separately where you define everything in full just so you have something to refer back to. Hope this helps!

so you really need to reduce the info down to the bare minimum and what's needed- problem is some people will think all the info from the textbook etc needs to go on the flashcard. if you're struggling to put just the facts down just put key words onto the flashcard that act as prompts- the more revision and exam practice you do etc the more confident you'll be with these prompts.
