I am currently preparing for several exams this semester and I am using a flashcard service, called “Repetico”, for the first time. I am using it to help me prepare on three modules which a high amount of slide and a wide variety of subjects which must be learned by heart. The modules are:
- Distributed Systems I (Verteilte Systeme)
- Datenbanken und Informationssysteme (german only – also known as “Implementierung von Datenbanken”)
- Information Visualization and Visual Analytics
Up until now I am happy with the solution even though the final success of this study approach will only be judged after my exam result.
But for now everybody that has the same modules can apply for learning with those flashcard sets. You can write an request by clicking on the links above.
Maybe it helps some of you as well.
Please not that I am not solely relying on those cards especially because there are a lot of exercise on those topics, but rather to know definitions, principals or procedures.
Especially in distributed systems and Infovis it is crucial to know the protocols, procedures, algorithms and to have created so lattices, serialization-graphs and visualizations by hand.
