History is complex subject to study. As well as being able to recite facts and figures, you also need to answer in-depth essay questions. Therefore, preparing for a history exam is different to other exams, as it bridges the gap between factual subjects like science and more subjective discussion and essay-based subjects like art.
So how can iFlipTips help you with this?
Images, audio and video
You can also take pictures of timelines and store them in the app. This saves you time as you don’t have to write them out. Make your own flow charts showing a chain of events or mind maps that provide an overview of a topic and store images of these on an iFlipTips card. Doing this allows you to study on the go instead of having to carry around paper copies of charts and diagrams.
Using iTipsIdeas cards to create study notes. If you have time, it’s helpful to do this straight after each class or module while the information is still fresh in your mind. However, you can also do this separately in preparation for exams.
IFlipCards are useful for testing your knowledge of facts, or to create mock essay questions. You can use the ‘answer’ side of the card to either contain a simple answer or, in the case of essay questions, a list of points that you need to include. You can also include the marking specifications for that particular module to grade your answers and give yourself an indication of how thoroughly you know the information.
Using iFlipSlides, you can create slide shows, either for class presentations or as part of your study program. The act of simply creating a slideshow on a particular topic, even if you don’t publicly present it, can be a helpful way of studying for an exam.
Separate your cards up into different folders for each module or semester. Organizing your history notes will make it a lot easier to streamline your study process. For example you can use different main folders for different historical periods, and then use sub-folders for different events or topics within that historical period.
The app’s calendar is helpful for organizing your study program. Once you’ve finished learning something, you can archive it so it no longer appears in your main notes list but is still viewable through the ‘settings’ part of the app. Organization is one of the most important components of successful studying so keeping your notes relevant will help you focus on what you still need to do.
