  • One of my all time favorite ways to use sticky notes

  • is to use them to replace flashcards.

  • Instead of carrying around all of your cards,

  • you can simply stick them in your notes

  • and test yourself whilst you read.

  • For this, you only need two sets of sticky notes,

  • preferably in different colors and of the same size.

  • First, I will write the answer in one of my sticky notes,

  • which I will normally do in bullet form

  • so I know which topics I should mention to get the right answer.

  • And, in the other sticky note,

  • I will write the main title, topic or question.

  • Now, all you have to do is stick them on top of one another,

  • and you have your improvised flashcards.

  • You can either arrange a whole notebook with these sticky notes

  • or just incorporate them into your study materials,

  • so you can assess your knoweldege on the way.

  • This can also be a cheaper alternative for some people

  • since, in many countries,

  • a pack of flashcards can be quite expensive.

  • Another great way to

  • make the most out of your unused pack of sticky notes is

  • making mind maps

  • The good thing about it is that

  • you can re-arrange the topics as you go along since

  • each sticky note is independent from each other.

  • And also, reorganize your mind maps on notebooks,

  • your table

  • or as I like to do during finals,

  • on an empty wall.

  • You can either use your regular sticky notes or,

  • like I recommend

  • get these Magnetic Notes from Tesla Amazing.

  • These don't have any glue on them,

  • and simply stick to any material.

  • They come in a whole array of colors and sizes

  • and you can simply slide them along the wall to reposition them

  • and, if you need to,

  • take them away and put them in your notebooks

  • when you are tired of seeing everything on your wall.

  • If you are a very visual learner,

  • studying with colorful mind maps can really

  • help you on the way for better grade

  • because your mind will associate certain information

  • with a certain color

  • and a certain position on a chart.

  • That will let you reference better your material,

  • and you will remember much more while you are taking an exam

  • or writing an assignment.

  • Also, keeping these mind maps on your wall during finals

  • can help you memorize better since all the information you'll need to remember

  • will be sticked on your wall

  • and you will end up looking at it everytime you enter or leave your room.
