When it comes to the benefits of handwritten notes, researchers Pam A. Mueller (Princeton University) and Daniel M. Oppenheimer (University of California, Los Angeles) teamed-up to track the test result differences between students who took handwritten notes versus typed notes.
The results: Handwritten notes were more concise, more accurate, and students retained and recalled more information when tested.
Simply put: Physically writing your notes helps you learn the information better. Now, where do flashcards come into play?
Now that you’re aware of the benefits of taking notes by hand, let’s catch you up to speed on how flashcards enhance those benefits.

When you combine handwriting with active recall techniques, flashcards become the optimal way to study.
