Bug Fixes and Performance Improvements
I first found out about Brainscape Senior year of high school. My friend recommended it and I absolutely LOVED it! I got it when everything was free, but I liked it so much that when they came up with "Pro" I chose to buy the one year subscription (thinking I wouldn't use it after high school). However, I continued to use it through college and STILL love it! So much that when the year was over I upgraded to the lifetime subscription. This app got me through some of my toughest classes. It also helped me study for HOSA state which I then qualified for HOSA nationals and went even further! I couldn't have done it without this app! I will do anything for my grades and success in life, and Brainscape proved to me that I'm even willing to pay for a subscription to help me study! Definitely recommend! Even if you're not planning on buying the Pro.
The only flash cards you'll need for life
The system has you rate the cards as to how well you know the material. The research that has gone into the making of this application is phenomenal. The program shows you the cards based on the confidence that you assigned each card and is set up to show you the cards in a particular way that is the fastest way to memorize anything. It shows the cards that you know the most the least, and the cards that you know the least are shown the most. It's so good that I can't but help to write a review on it. Abandon quizlet and abandon the old fashioned way of buying index cards and handwriting them out. This is the only app you'll need to memorize anything from a new language to postulates, proofs, and formulas in mathematics. Even alcohol facts for those bar tenders out there are available for download.
Many great features, a few deficiencies
I have the full Bar Boost set, which I love! I've told many of my classmates about it. However, I've noticed quite a few spelling, grammar, and even content errors, which is worrisome.
Then there is the issue of the main app. I downloaded the free version and it mixed in with my bar cards, which just created a mess and I could no longer get an accurate assessment of my progress on the bar cards. Also, it wouldn't let me study any cards from the main categories. I think it was counting the bar cards as my daily free ones? Even though I paid for the full set.
I ended up deleting the main app after about 10 minutes. I may try again after the bar exam.
