Studying for Success from: Prep with Jen

We’re excited to share these super helpful videos of Prep with Jen’s review of our flashcards! 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 & general educational advice. We were thrilled to be included in her most recent review videos, so here’s an over cap:  

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 onThe 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 learningIt’s important to know which learning technique will work best for your studying goals.  

Digital vs. Physical Flashcards: 

In this video Jen reviews our products & talks about the pros & cons of Physical vs. Digital Flashcards by themselves. She then transitions to talking about hamelin products & how we offer the best of both worlds with our SCRIBZEE integration. With hamelin you’ll never have to choose between physical or digital versions of your notes or flashcards again! 

Here’s a screencap that outlines the major differences between our flashcards & competitors 

“Within the app there’s also a really cool quiz feature where you can go through the cards within a category. Where you’ll swipe right if you got it right, if you swipe left means you didn’t know it and at the end they’ll tell you a percentage & you can just continue to drill the cards until you get a really good handle on them” - Jen 

We hope you enjoyed this informational & hands on review of our Flash 2.0 product line. Many thanks to Prep with Jen for putting together great content like this to help students of all levels succeed! To celebrate, we're offering 25% off your entire order with promo code: PREPWITHJEN
