Flashcards should be something that you've taken from a reduced version of your initial notes. Fifteen is too much, you shouln't have more than two per page. I suggest that when writing flashcards, make sure you're making them about 2 weeks after learning a topic, as in those two weeks when you revisit and answer questions to do with the topic you will know what is actually important to remember.

fifteen a page is an awful lot especially from one page of a revision guide, a book where the information should already be condensed down. make sure you only have the key words and facts on your flashcards.

I think it depends on what you're putting on the flashcards. I used to make them for my GCSEs and they'd focus on quite detailed bits. So I'd put a question on one side and the answer would generally be a sentence or less so I could make plenty out of one page of a revision guide.

If you're using flashcards to try and practice active recall for specific facts/figures, then I don't think the number matters. If you're trying to condense a page of notes into a smaller set of notes, then as people have said above, you probably want to look at exactly what you're extracting from each page so you only focus on the key bits.

Hope that helps
