Today, I made exactly 400 flashcards of my vocab that I had to memorize. It took me over 3 hours to make them and hours to remember them. Proud of myself, I showed them to my friends. Then my friends notified me I had memorized the wrong section. FML

oh crap you're from Michigan... we need to send all the dumb people away, so we can get educational funding, if no one buys our cars( Ford, GM, Chrysler, __[others I'm forgetting if any]__).

400 flashcards? Really? Why couldn't you just memorize them out of the book instead of wasting several hours to make them in the first place? This bothers me more than the fact that it wasn't even the right section to begin with.

Because (and this is a proven fact) some people remember things better if they write them down and read them over. It's like taking notes in class, it doesn't just give you notes, but also leaves a better memory in your brains.
It's actually a really good way to memorize things that don't really make sense, like loose words. If it's something like history it also works, but reading and understanding is also a really big part of it.

I've done the same thing except I wa outlining pages from my history book. I ended up doing 4 extra sections that weren't part of the assignment. We never covered them in class either after that :(
