Should I use the flashcards from physics and maths tutor a level biology? It contains notes that are beyond the specification such as exocytosis and it has a possible error. It claims that glycogen is also found in plants and I can't find anywhere in the web that says it does.

the second source says that glycogen is present in plants that do not contain chlorophyll, so your sources do not contradict each other

It isn't mentioned in any if my textbooks so for my A levels should I just say it isn't? And in my distant learning source it says that plants do not store glycogen.

I think rather saying that it isn't in plants, say that the main storage polysaccharide for animals is glycogen, whereas the main storage polysaccharide for plants is starch
or something like that

Also this doesn't explain the extra content such as exocytosis and such.

I am. I'm currently using ANKII to retype the flashcards and using other sources to make new flashcards using active recall and spaced repetition

STOP bumping your thread - it's against the rules.

Many people don't find commercial flash cards at all useful - save your money.

it's fine to use them along with other resources and your specification. if something comes up on the PMT revision cards that is definitely not on your spec then there is no need to learn/revise it, might be interesting to look into if you want to
