8 of the Best Linux Flashcard Software
A flashcard stores information on a set of cards, with the
information being typically portrayed as words and numbers. The purpose
of flashcards is to enable individuals to store verbal and visual
information, often as a learning drill by way of spaced
repetition. The Leitner system is a popular method of studying with
flashcards using spaced repetition.
When you learn flashcards of new words each day
for a number of days, this information is stored in your short-term
memory. Flashcards also exercise the mental process of active recall.
This is an efficient learning principle where an individual's memory is
stimulated during the learning process. Unlike a passive review (e.g.
reading a book), active recall is designed to consolidate long-lasting
memory of information. Transferring information from short-term to
long-term memory is essential in studying for an examination.
Flashcards are one of the best tools for memorizing
information. This is partly because of their versatility.
They can help teach multiplication skills, learn a foreign language,
recall facts, historical dates, in fact anything that can be learned in
an intuitive way.
To provide an insight into the quality of software available,
we have compiled a list of 8 excellent flashcard applications.

in-depth analysis of its features, together with links to relevant
resources and reviews.
