Flashcards are the best way to study...
Studying for the various beverage qualification exams requires the memorization of a lot of material. I have created thousands of handwritten flashcards over the years and refer back to them frequently. Today, there are a number of very usful app's that have been developed to allow you to take your study material on the road with you and study anywhere at anytime. This is great because even a shortstack of flashcards can be a little unweildy, plus the electronic versions can be edited and updated easily as material and information changes.
The app that I have used for the past few study sessions is Cram. I have transferred and made literally hundreds and hundreds of well written and organzied flashcards on Cram, and still have many more to add from my own library. This is a great system as it not only allows me to make and keep cards organized by subject, I can access on my mobile and study them in a number of formats - I like the fast paced "cram" style for intense study. The Cram platform also allows me to add graphics and pictures to the cards, a decent amount of editing of the text, and to make these open for public access.
Here is a list of the card sets with links to my flashcard sets. Since I have been adding material to this for a number of years some of the cards are at the intro level and some at the more advanced level. I update these and add new cards all the time, so check back frequently. If you see information that is out of date or in someway incorrect, please drop me a note and I will reseach and update.
Each set title is a link.
