Study First - Live Later

Well, first week of classes is behind us now. 
This is a good thing. 
So it's time to buckle down, breathe and get to work.

This is my motto for the month of September -- "study first, live later." 


New ways to make and use flashcards


Here's a link to an article I wrote for PA ADVANCE about using spaced repetition flash cards.  I've been creating and using these cards in Anki to help me recall facts from anatomy and pathophysiology lecture.  It seems helpful.  I can report more fully on my progress in a few weeks. 
Though one blogger told me that Anki works better for long term memory rather than short term memory such as employed in semester exams, I'm trying it anyway. 

I like the fact that I tell Anki when I want to review a card again by my response as to how well I remembered the answer.  However, one downside of Anki is that it is clumsy to use as a last minute quiz or test review because you can't really call the cards up on demand if you have already reviewed them for the day.  So an outline or other resource is best if you want a brush up review for this purpose.
