How it works

Quick Guide: Getting started with eFaqt

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain

This article shows you how to make, find and study your summaries with eFaqt in 4 simple steps!

Step 1: What would you like to study?

Let’s say you are taking 5 courses this semester. You might also have different books, articles, slides to study for every course. That can get a bit confusing ?? Don’t panic, in eFaqt you can organise your study materials per course. Let’s start!

1. Set up a course

Create a course from scratch, or check whether your course already exists in the eFaqt Community. The good thing about joining an existing course is that you can find summaries already prepared by others. Of course, you can also decide to skip this step.

2. Add a material to summarise

In eFaqt you can study all kinds of study materials. Most students summarise their text books, lectures notes and slides. You can also add materials made by other students.

Step 2: Create your summary

Create flashcards with questions and answers or make simple notes with keywords! You can format and add images to you flashcards anytime!  Creating your own summaries has a huge benefit. When you use your own words to summarise a topic or definition, you have a much easier time to actually memorise it!
