Leitner Flashcard System
Flashcards are a fantastic way to revise. However, producing a set of cards is not enough to help you learn effectively. You need to revisit the information regularly and test yourself until the learning sticks, which is when the Leitner Flashcard System comes in handy.
German science journalist Sebastian Leitner created the Leitner system. It uses several boxes to track when you need to study each flashcard. Using The Leitner Flashcard System will overcome the forgetting curve and improve your performance significantly.
Below is a guide to using the Leitner Flashcard System (we’re presuming you’ve made an effective set of revision cards, if not take a look at our guide to producing effective flashcards).
