“Not going to lie, I usually don’t want to study for my classes. That may have something to do with Netflix and YouTube being readily available, but either way, with Quizlet, I find myself studying all the time. Quizlet offers two different study methods: the familiar flash cards (which you can practice with an added feature of receiving a score on how well you’re remembering), and diagrams, which are composed of pictures with information you can input. It sounds cliché, but it helped me study without really feeling like I was studying.”

Can I rate it a 10/5? Quizlet has millions of flash cards created by its users and even suggests definitions based on the terms you type in when making your own. I actually found the majority of the terms I needed to learn on the app—which means I spent about a third of the time I usually spend making flash cards by hand when creating them on the app. And the time I saved I used to study!

The diagrams on the app are composed of a photo with information you input. You can take a picture of a room, for example, and then tap objects to input that information. It’s super cool and works really well for visual learners like myself.

I got a high score on my computer information technology test after reviewing the material with Quizlet. Can Netflix do that? Probs not.
