Welcome to Study Stack! This is my favorite study Web site, because it integrates studying not only by traditional means (think flashcards), but it includes studying by playing games. I love to recommend this site to my friends in class who are getting ready to take the GRE (Graduate Record Examination).
Start by selecting the subject matter you’d like to study from the list provided. You’ll then be taken to a much larger list that has study stacks for the specific topic you chose. Choose a study stack from the list and you’ll be taken to its page. There you can choose the method you’d like to study. Your options are: Notes, Flashcards, Study Stack, Study Table, Matching, Hangman, Crossword, Word Search, Unscramble, Type In, Bug Match, Export, Print, Edit, E-mail and Hmm.
Three options I really want to point out to you are Export, E-mail and Print. Export allows you to download the date to your cell phone, PDA, computer or even your iPod. The E-mail option allows you to send the address of the study stack to your friends via e-mail. Print allows you to print out flashcards in several different styles to use offline.
You can also add your own study materials if you can’t find what you need to study. To add your own, scroll down to the bottom of the list for the subject you want to study and then click on the Create Your Own link.
You’ll need to register to add your own material. It’s really easy if you have a Facebook account, because you can use that to log in. If you don’t, that’s okay too! Just register for Study Stack. To do so, fill out the registration form with a username, e-mail address, password and agree to the terms and conditions. It’s that simple!
Once you’re logged in, you can also create a study stack by clicking on the Create a New Stack link under your Stacks tab. You’ll need to name your stack, type in a description for it and decide whether you want to let other users edit it or whether you want it to auto-generate for the games.
Now, click on the Data tab. That’s where you’ll be able to insert the data you want to study. Type in the questions, then the answers and make sure you click on the Save Changes button when you’re done updating the data information.
Before you know it, you’ll have your study stack completed and you’ll be ready to start using it. Pretty neat, huh?!
