It’s Random Tuesday
Since I live in north Louisiana and the test is for Texas, the testing centers are only in Texas. So, today I am heading over to the city where I am scheduled to take my test. My plan is to get over there in time to look over things one more time, relax and get to sleep early. The hotel I’m staying in is walking distance to the testing center. Which will make it easy to get up, eat breakfast, calm myself with my YL essential oils, and walk over for check-in time at 7:30 AM. 😳 In other words, I’ll probably be up and dressed by 5 AM! Anyways, with all my studying I thought I would share a little information about a website I came across and have been using to help me with my studies. Let’s get started with “Quizlet….”
How I found Quizlet:
So, when I first started studying for my big test, I was making handwritten notecards. Unfortunately, there was so much information I started to get discouraged. While looking for something through Google, I came across this website named Quizlet with all these ‘notecards’ already made by other people who use the website. After exploring the site, I decided to use it instead of my handwritten notecards. About a week after using it, I was talking to my best friend and ironically she mentioned to be sure to use Quizlet.
Though I am still learning the ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ of the website, I decided a couple of weeks ago to start making my own notecards using Quizlet. I seem to remember things better when I rewrite the information whether it’s handwritten or typed.
On the website, you can do several things. If you want something quickly, you can do a search at the top. Within a ‘set’ there are options to review “Flashcards” of the information, “Learn” the information where you type in the answer, “Spell” the words if that’s what you are studying for, and there is also a “Test” option. The “Test” option on the website has various choices and it can be printed. This will certainly come in handy for teachers out there.
Other things included on the website are the three games. There’s “Match,” “Gravity,” and “Live.” “Live” is where you can play against others such as in a classroom, or use during a student study session.
Quizlet iPhone and iPad App:
On the Quizlet apps, you have the “Learn,” “Cards,” “Match,” and “Test” options. You can also search for particular study areas just like on the website. The “Learn” option is just like on the website as well as “Cards,” on it’s named “Flashcards” on the website. For the “Test” option, the various choices are the same except you cannot print the test out. Lastly, the “Match” option, is the only game available on the apps. I prefer using the apps as I can use them instead of being on my computer 24/7. Since I’ve been studying for my test, I’ve been using them before I go to sleep at night.
There you go. If you have been looking for another way to study for yourself or kiddos, this is a great website to use. I certainly wish I had this back in high school. Hope you enjoyed!
