Thanks for joining me as we wrap-up the memorization series. Today I want to introduce you to one of my favorite free online tools for memorization, Quizlet.com. This is my go-to tool for working on lists of terms and definitions.
I love this site because it is very easy to get started and create a set of terms and definitions. Once you’re set up there are a ton of ways you can work on the set including games you can play, traditional flashcards, and a customizable test mode (my fav).
They also have a free mobile app for Apple and Android devices. I find it very useful for studying on-the-fly and maximizing my time. If I am waiting in the school drop-off line for 5 minutes I will pull out my phone and run a quick test.
Quizlet allows you to search through user-created quizlets and you can use any of their pre-built term sets to study from. If you are studying something extremely popular, this may be helpful, but most often you will want to create your own Quizlet to review exactly what you need to know.
Quizlet for Memorization
