Quizlet Makes Studing Fashionable

It is 9 on Thursday night, that means it is time for me to cram vocabulary words for the quiz tomorrow. The traditional way to do it would be to wait till 11 and then make flash cards, but that is unglamorous and would give me raccoon eyes tomorrow.

The new way to study vocabulary is online via games, flash cards, and quizzes. I found an amazing site called Quizlet. A high school student started it, and I love his idea. It is ingenious and I wish I invented it. Quizlet has online flash cards, but what makes the site so amazing to me is the fact that there are two fun games for vocabulary memorization. You can also use the words for a practice test with multiple formats: multiple choice, true and false, and matching.

Here is a screen shot of scatter, my favorite game, where you drag words to match their meaning. It is timed so its a challenge to beat you best score.

It is truly a great study tool and it has improved my grade by a few points since I started using it. An increase in test scores is like buying new outfit, it makes you feel like you can take on anything.

Start studing the fashionable way!
