Sometimes the latest and greatest bleeding-edge technology is what's needed to get the job done. If you're a trailblazer and boldly going where nobody has gone before, this may be the approach for you. If, however, your goals are a bit more modest, the tried-and-true approach may be more your style.

Flash cards as a learning aid have been around since forever, or at least as long as there have been index cards. It's easy to write a question on the front of a card and the answer on the back. Or if you'd like to modernize the process, maybe you can enlist your computer to give you a hand, along with the folks at Printable Flash Cards. This site has dozens of sets of ready-made printable flash cards covering a wide variety of topics, including geography, science, literature, and more. Or if you don't see the set you need, they've got a free flash card maker you can use to generate your own custom flash cards. Choose from four- or six cards to a page, or you can add additional pages to your flash card set. Print 'em out, use them to study, and next thing you know you'll be a Rhodes Scholar (well, maybe not, but why not aim high?).

Printable Flash Cards is a free service. Any flash cards you download will be in PDF format, so you'll need a copy of Adobe Reader to print them out.

    One day, when you lack inspiration, you may want to look into other free PDF readers 😉

    Wow you took the words right out of my mouth, PeeJay! I hate Adobe. It’s like going shopping with a 10 ton truck when all you need is a loaf of bread.

    A very good (and free!) PDF reader I’ve been using for a long time now is Foxit PDF reader. It does exactly what it needs to do, it’s fast and it’s free!

    One of my favorite (and often overlooked) features of OS X is native PDF support with Preview.
