    Those of you who used flashcards as part of your preperation for the MCAT, which ones do you feel are the best. How did you like the ones you used. I think the three main ones out there now are:
    1. Exambuster MCAT flashcards
    2. MCAT Made easy flashcards
    3. Kaplan Flashcards
    What do you guys think?

    I liked the Kaplan flashcard format: down-to-the-point. The examcrackers are also good, but they tend to put a lot of the information on each card. The kaplan cards break things down.

    hope this helps.

    I.....
    1- made my own
    2- also used Kaplan flashwords
    Flashcards seem to be very helpful in reviewing the material to make sure you don't forget it....but man I really need to learn how to tackle those passages faster and read more efficienty. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    I used the MCAT Made Easy cards and made my own from the Kaplan review book and other sources. The M.M.E cards, if I recall, were not overyly cluttered and were very helpful. There were about 1200-1300 cards altogether (again, if I recall correctly). I spent about 90$ on them. Flashcards do not really help you learn the material, but they are wonderful for keeping what you have already learned fresh in your mind.

    I made my own flashcards, while taking the Princeton Review course and using their books. I found it helpful, because while I was making the flashcards, it helped me to memorize and know the material better.
