- Buy physical paper flashcards: I was weirdly excited to see Amazon still stocks the exact flashcard make that I used to buy as a student! I was a bit picky – you want a good quality of paper, the right size, and a spine that’s not so bulky that it’s uncomfortable to write on the back of a card when it’s flipped over (if you’re right handed, your hand is resting right over the spine at that point). Available in packs of five. Only available in the UK unfortunately – elsewhere, try these.
