How to make the most out of studying with Flashcards: Prep with Jen

We’re excited to share these super helpful videos of Prep with Jen’s review of our flashcards + the difference between physical & digital flashcards + Flashcard Hacks! If you don’t know her already Jen is an amazing online tutor & studying expert who shares her knowledge & tips about everything from SAT prep, to algebra & generaleducational advice. We were thrilled to be included in her most recent review video which you can watch below.  

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.  

Fun fact: Did you know flashcards are more suited for ‘contained’ fact-based learning?

It’s important to know which learning technique will work best for you and your studying goals. Take a look at this overview on the basic differences between Digital & Physical Flashcards, and how each can impact your studying differently.

Digital vs. Physical Flashcards:

In this video Jen reviews our products & talks about the pros & cons of Physical vs. Digital Flashcards by themselves.
