Does Quizlet work in the long-run, or written cue cards?

Hiya! I'm in Year 12 and since September I've been using Quizlet for things like small tests in class and just whenever I'm unsure of a certain topic and need to recover it.
However, over the summer I intend to make/complete revision resources for all of my subjects, so I'm not sure whether it's reliable long-term?
So far, I've achieved high marks in tests after using it and I'm hoping it will come in handy with memorising statistics, but would it be best to write flashcards out instead?
Thanks!

I use Memrise, which is very similar. It is perfect for learning vocabulary but it’s reliability really depends on which course you take. If it is an official list provided by Quizlet, it should be perfect. However, if it has been made by a third party member and you are using their course be prepared for some spelling errors or typos along the way. Overall though, it is best used for vocabulary but of course you are going to need some notes on also grammar points and such to get the highest marks
Good luck!

Thank you ! I'm making the sets from scratch, but completely agree about the spelling errors because I type quickly and keep making them agh! Haven't heard of Memrise before, I'll be sure to try it out.

Wow! I know how long that can take so I commend that! Memrise is very similar to quizlet, but try and stick with quizlet so you don’t get your resources in a tangle, speaking from experience
