  • Amazing. Would of paid $20

    by AndySanchezCheats

    Best flashcard system I have come across. The rating of 1-5 on how confident you are with the card determines how much that and will randomly keep popping up. Genius! Strongly suggest it. It's a must! And no, I don't work for the app developers :)

  • Great for MCAT studying.

    by lambs quarter salad

    This is exactly what a flash card app should be like. Easy to use, super helpful, definitely a keeper. I wish I had this while I was studying chemistry in college...

    I'm not taking the MCAT for another 2 years ... but I figured it's good to get started early. These are actually pretty helpful for my summer Gen Chem class material. Glad I found it!!

    Bleary-eyed from reviewing for MCAT in June. This won't replace wikipedia - but it has all the content in easy bite-sized bits so you can go back and review better later. NECESSARY tool for MCAT prep. Good work.

  • So many cards!

    by Simonaator

    I've looked at a bunch of flashcard apps, and this one looks to be the most comprehensive and well put-together. This is not one of those stupid "what is an electron?" kind of products. The cards test the content at a level appropriate to MCAT preparation, and is definitely going to be a big part of my preparing for the MCAT. Hundreds and hundreds of cards, testing everything I'm going to see in chemistry questions on the MCAT? 5 Stars!
