I'm using Kaplan, FTR.
I used them as a resource after the lecture. I took my lecture notes and added to the cards where I think I was lacking. Until I really had a subject down, I would go through like five or ten at a time. Once I got them well enough, I would go through the next five. In the last two weeks I was going through a subject at a time. Usually took about a half-hour to an hour once I had them really down.
Did you do anything to prepare for the lectures?
You're right. As much as I'd like to make my own flashcards, that time and energy is better saved for practise and memorisation.
It's only been a week, and I'm rebelling against Barbri.
I just use them with Barbri. I read the CMR to "prepare" for the lecture. I then watch the lecture and fill out the lecture notes while also adding anything the cards are lacking to them. It's mainly bar tips and then all caps for things like "always tested," "rarely tested," or "know this well." I plan on using them for my after subject review if I can ever get around to actually doing it.
Essentially what I did, although not the rarely tested part. If you guys want, I can make a doc that has my notes on each card with the card numbers listed. Only will do this if people actually want it because it is a ton of work.
I won't say no! I think everything in here has been tremendously useful, so if you have the time to do this, I would very much appreciate marking my cards accordingly! Thanks again for your time and efforts.
