Research Shows Flashcards as Best Learning Technique

by Sarah Prosory 15. January 2013 10:54

Law school is all about studying. Reading and studying.

This article from Time magazine caught my eye, as it discusses the best learning techniques for retaining information. Surprisingly, reading and highlighting are mentioned as not being as effective as using flashcards! The article goes on to explain how taking practice tests and using flashcards are great because, "[r]esearch shows that the mere act of calling information to mind strengthens that knowledge and aids in future retrieval."

 
Be sure to check out the Law Library's flashcards, located in the Academic Success collection. They can be checked out for 4 hours, no renewals.
 
Search the Law Library Catalog to find the flashcard set that is right for you!
