Cool Learning Tool: Flashcard Exchange

Flashcard Exchange is one of many free tools available to help you study. The idea is based on the principles of repetition and memorization.

You can create your own set of flashcards or use one of the many sets of flashcards made by other students.

FlashCards search

There are 48 subject areas listed under the “Browse By Subject” Medical heading, including pharmacology, hematology, and USMLE. For any of these subject areas there are hundreds of flashcard sets available. Once you select a set of flashcards, you can view the front or back or both together. There is also a memorize and test feature with each set.

FlashCard example

Keep in mind, however, that there is no one reviewing these flashcard sets. The flashcards are only as good as the students who developed them.

Flashcard Exchange has an app store so you can use the flashcards on your iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry devices, allowing you to take your flashcards wherever you go. Now you can study on the bus, at lunch, or while you are waiting for an elevator!
