Whether you find your genetics class fascinating, or it falls outside of your interests, you should try your best to earn a good grade in your class to maintain a great GPA and a college transcript that you are proud of. Genetics classes can be challenging, so Varsity Tutors' Learning Tools offers several genetics study help activities that make studying more convenient and fun, including free flashcards online.
The genetics study flashcards cover many important concepts you may be expected to learn in your genetics class. You can study the whole deck of flashcards or take advantage of one of the smaller sets that each focus on a specific genetics concept. Specific genetics concepts you can quiz yourself on with the flashcards include recessive and dominant genes, gene mutations, DNA sequences, recombination frequencies, genotypes, gene inheritance patterns, recessive disorders, co-dominance, gene crossing, alleles, the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, reproductive strategies, genetic loci, gene silencing, and many more.
Squeezing in small study sessions throughout the week can be very helpful. Flashcards are perfect for quizzing yourself when you just have a little time to spare and don't have time to sit down and take a practice test. The genetics flashcards can be accessed from any computer, smartphone, or tablet, and that makes them easy to study at home and on-the-go.
If you have other bulky study materials you would like to make easier to practice with or want to create your own genetics-based questions to answer, you can do that with the flashcards maker. To access this Learning Tool, just click on the “Create Tests & Flashcards” icon. You will then be directed to the flashcards builder, where you will be provided with blank flashcards templates. Enter your own genetics review questions right into the templates and you can then add the correct answer along with incorrect answers to choose from in multiple-choice style.
Enter the questions from past quizzes and tests, homework assignments, or the practice tests in your genetics textbook. You will also be provided with a space to explain why the correct answer is the right choice, so take advantage of this space to help you remember how to come up with the right answer in the future. You can even create equation-based questions and answers.
Be sure to make the flashcards you create with the flashcards maker challenging. One tip is to make sure that the correct answer choice doesn't stand out too much among the other multiple-choice answers! Instead, add other choices that you often confuse with the correct one. Also, don't worry about having to re-enter questions and answers into the flashcards creator before every study session, because you can save each deck you create to pull up later when you want to study them. It is a good idea to save all the decks you create during your genetics class until after you take the final exam. You can then be sure you have them to study when you may feel like you need them most!
It can be difficult to study as much as you would like to when you have a jam-packed schedule and can't carry all of your textbooks around all day. The Learning Tools Flashcards offer the perfect way to squeeze in a little study time in small sessions throughout your day without lugging around your genetics textbook.
