-- I don't really understand this. Let's say I come up with five general and key questions about the most important ideas on chapter 1 in econ. I follow this up by devising 1 question for each heading and subheading, totally 30 questions on a single chapter. How would I organize this? 5) Would EACH question be assigned to a single flashcard (30 separate flashcards) or would I ask multiple questions on each flashcard (5 flashcards for the general key questions and another flashcard containing the remaining 25 questions of the chapter). 6) How would I continue building and adding onto this and making it into a cogent whole not only regarding the book, but the entire economics course?
We'll take the time to explain it agin. Suppose you have a chapter divided into sections, and that these sections are divided into one-sentence questions (which form the end of the chain).
You can proceed as follows:
1. Write the flashcard for the whole chapter.
2. Clone it (i.e. copy-paste on a List window), thus creating one flashcard for each section of the chapter.
3. Take one "section flashcard" and remove the information about the rest of the sections.
4. Clone that "section flashcard", thus creating flashcards for the one-sentence questions.
5. Take one of those one-sentence flashcards and remove the exceeding information from it.
