The Importance of Creating Custom Cards

Every test and
teacher is different

Rarely tests are standardized. In reality, each teacher has it’s own plan and tests vary greatly according to his subjective opinion of what is important and what not. This is why one key skill of successful students is to adapt successfully to their teachers or schools individual game plan. You don’t achieve this by copying standard knowledge from a “neutral” base. You achieve this by adapting your learning strategy to the specific testing environment. This testing environment can vary according to teacher, the specific knowledge required for a certain test or your own needs about the knowledge which has to be covered. Also you want to make sure you only learn the subjects relevant and matching your own learning style, without covering unnecessary overload of things which are clear for you anyway. Only writing your own cards will help you to achieve the perfect preparation without wasting time on unnecessary clutter.

Creating your own cards is vital for understanding the topic you would like learn. Going through all your material while separating the important facts from the clutter is guaranteed to help you to get a thorough overview of the topic. You will be forced to think about your methods of organizing knowledge which makes writing cards and filtering out the clutter worth your time and effort.
