When I was in college I used flashcards to study for tests. They are a beautiful thing. I would hand write the vast amounts of information from my notes and books into small, little bite sized chunks. I would then flash those buggers till the cows came home. The ones I knew went in one pile and the ones I didn't have down pat went into the other. Only when I could rattle answers off willy-nilly was I ready to stop studying.

It was nothing at all for me to have hundreds of flashcards wrapped in blocks with rubber bands when all was said and done with a course. I credit those flashcard information bites as the main reason why I could memorize vast amounts of knowledge and graduate with honors.

Needless to say, I've passed that study skill on to our son who is now in college. He writes and writes and then I flash those cards at gun until his eyes cross. But, he hit the College Dean's List at the age of 15 and has never looked back so it's not in vain. :o)

I've said all that to say, I would have paid a small fortune to be able to EASILY type up and print flashcards. Sure I tried it but I could never get the things to print so that I could fold, cut and flash. Well, lo and behold my son sure can.

Here is the FREE flashcard generator. Print them on a thicker stock paper and your work is half done. Just zip a little glue down the middle before you fold and then cut. Voila! Easy, peasy!
