Supercharge your SAT studying with Flashcards:
In this video Jen goes over the importance of flashcards for memorization & how the practice of ‘active recall’can open neural pathways in the brain. This means that physically writing down the information can open up a new memory link when your brain goes to recall that information later on. The more unique you can make the handwritten content the better chance you’ll have of remembering what was written down, so try to include pictures, colors, new phrases or synonyms to make it even more effective. Jen goes on to tie these techniques specifically to taking the SAT test & how flashcards can help you get a better score.
