Would you be willing to share your flashcards?

Students could get help with the questions and were given a grade (20 to 30 points). Starting in the 2nd week of May, we held afterschool review sessions 2 to 3 times a week for 45 minutes. Each review session covered one unit. In addition to all of the above, I made flashcards on all the required skills/concepts, and yes, even painstakingly cut them up with a paper cutter, put them in plastic bags, handed them out about 3 weeks before the exam and begged my kids to study them at least 15 minutes a day. We held evening review sessions the Sunday and Monday before the exam.
