check these out, good fun way to review some of the material
Does anyone here use the powerscore flashcards btw?
I haven't used the ps flashcards yet but was thinking I might buy them. Have you used them? If so, what do you think?

What do you put on the cards? We put mini questions on ours (as in diagrams to interpret, conditional statements to translate, arguments to find the conclusion of, etc.). I must admit I wouldn't find the ones that were in the OP's link very useful -- too removed from context and with the idea of memorizing instead of grasping the logic. But, whatever works...

i put a list of things to look for in question types, then steps to solve the problem on it. I also make cards of examples of phrases and key words to identify the question type by. I find that its a helpful way to remember the key info to look for and to use to eliminate incorrect answer choices. For parallel questions, i do examples of how to diagram, make contrapositives, and so on

I have the powerscore cards and they're pretty good - especially for drilling some of the conditional/formal logic work. there's about 20 or more that give you random conditional statements and ask you to diagram them which i found pretty useful, and isn't something i could have just made up on my own. but, be warned - there are A LOT of cards, and some of them are really useless categorizing questions, like testing your knowledge of the official powerscore definition of must be true. you know how ps is with categories... but all in all it's a pretty good purchase if you're reviewing and need more material.
