BOOKMARKED

GMAT Flash Cards Competition by GMAT Club!

Have you ever dreamed about the perfect product? We did and we looked around and found many sets of flashcards available. Some are free, some are okay, and some are worthless. We are not looking to create yet another set of flashcards - that will be a failure. We are on a quest to create the ultimate GMAT flashcards that will replace them all and will never be rivaled.

The final results are posted here:
gmat-flashcards-108651.html

Lofty goal? Maybe, but we've done it before and we are even more serious about it and pay in cash for each section separately. If you are proud of your work, we need YOU. Submit your set of Verbal or Math GMAT flashcards and you can get paid $750 or all$1,600!
It is a good idea to create notes while you study, so think of it this way - we pay you to study

List of Participants:

1. whiplash2411 - verbal
2. kissthegmat - TBD
3. Dreamy - Quant

Verbal GMAT Flashcards - posted as submitted

1. Submission #1 - Whiplash2411

Winner of the First Prize for Verbal Flashcards!
Attachment:
Whiplash Verbal Flashcards.pdf [358.91 KiB]

Strengths:
- Overall very well put together flashcards set covering all areas of verbal: CR, RC, and SC
- Includes both strategies/core material and also tricky questions including a collection of idioms with correct/incorrect examples
- The design for flip side was done well for the questions cards
- Well formatted
- Feel complete/finished
- The design was also good enough for me to consider it as a suggested design for the future flashcards

Weaknesses:
- Not yet found anything that is an obvious weakness. Some suggestions could be put additional links to extra examples or questions for practice as well as questions tagged appropriately for each area/error type

2. Submission #2 - Harshsingla

Winner of the Third Prize for Verbal Flashcards!
Attachment:
Harshsingla verbal GMAT Flaschards.pdf [251.9 KiB]

[highlight]Strengths:[/highlight]
- This set has a number of interesting features
- Good usage of "fun" approach to studying
- Good design
- Great and innovative way to display idioms - I am not sure if this makes studying easier yet but I like the representation

Weaknesses:
I could see a number of areas improved to make this a contender for prize 1 or 2 (We won't award a prize unless a contender earns a certain number of points; however, happy to award the third prize to reward the thinking, effort, and hopefully motivate for more!)
- Would be great to have more than just Idioms covered in more details and in-depth (RC and CR could be expanded as well ac SC)
- Idioms could use examples and usage guides

Quant GMAT Flashcards - posted as submitted

1. Submission #1 - Dreamy

Attachment:
Dreamy Quant Flashcards.pdf [581.52 KiB]

Strengths:
One of the two submissions for the Quant flashcards and I am not able to award it the first/second prize unfortunately (at least not yet) - i think if they could be reworked, it would be a very solid submission.
- Comprehensive coverage of a number of areas
- Good material
- Packed with information
- Good graphs and illustrations

Weaknesses:
- Not technically flashcards - i printed them out and I am not really able to read them - would be great to format them to fit on smaller size paper
- Not in flashcards format of "front" and "back" side. Where the front side asks the question or tests a concept and the second side provides the explanation/answer

Verbal + Quant Flashcards - posted as submitted

1. Submission #1 - N2739178

(Awaiting clarification about copyright) - they are based on MGMAT Books and I am trying to figure out if I can actually use them or if MGMAT has the copyright on these

I would like to try for quant flash cards.

But are we doing page design here. I don't understand what bb means by Layout/Design. What format we should be submitting the flash cards.

Thank you! Would love to have you do it!

It's pretty open - they need to be in word.
1. You can partition the standard 8x11 page into 4 or 6 sections
2. You can create custom paper size
3. etc

As to design, you need to pick font, any colors, bolding, any accents, touches of design etc. There is a separate consideration for design as good designers are not always good at math and vice versa.

Does this make sense?

bb: Can you make the format PDF friendly? It might be easier to make the flashcards that way (Especially if you're using another software to do this)

Yes. This helps. I need to work on my quant and the flash card. Thanks bb for making us push towards the common goal.

BB, count me in.

Also thought it would be good idea to have the winning flashcard template published in here and GMATClub members could use the template to add important properties/info/tricks in it. The moderators could then periodically analyze/evaluate/refine and release a "GMATClub member's choice" version of the Quant/Verbal flashcard every quarter or so.
