Keep track of your progress

As you learn each flashcard, mark them as “mastered” to keep track of where you’re making progress, or any areas where you need to spend a little more time reviewing material. You can also search the entire division library by a specific term or concept, so that you can easily find the content areas you want to focus on the most.

Though you can use the flashcards on their own, they work best when used in tandem with our other study materials. Use the digital flashcards as a piece of your study strategy to help you keep key terms, formulas, and ideas on hand, so you can quickly recall them as you go through your exam.
