      It doesn't take forever if you are smart about what you put as cards. It works best when you only put things like pharm or "what chemical activates macrophages" or other discrete pieces of knowledge. More complex knowledge is probably better learned by reading a book or doing practice questions.

        This here. My cards are all discrete knowledge and are basically things that I've missed in practice questions (QBanks, etc.). No point in making cards for things you already know.

          Only an MS1, haven't taken micro, but I usually just make cards for any question I can think of with a one- or two-word answer, and then put extra info or a picture of the ppt slide in the answer field so I can read up if I got it wrong.

            Ya I do that already, It just takes forever to do it for each and every slide except for a few slides per lecture that are just illustrations I get or information thats not really tested. I never get time to do practice questions with this method plus I lose a lot of time unlike just re-watching lectures because I get bored quickly making Anki cards.
