What is flash cart and for what purpose it need?
Flash card is simple carton cards where one side is question and another side is answer. It need for memorization some conceptions or can be used for learning api (memorization).
It used this way: you have a deck of cards you look at question side and try to remember what was answer. If you be good you just put this card to the bottom of deck and try next card.
if you not good you place this card 5-10 card after first card (so you get it sooner, and try one again).
if you have a lot of this cards you can place card you spot after 10 or 20 or 50 card or at middle or at end.
You just use memorization -> thing that you know you repeat later.
For my own opinion it is very useful when you study.
You can use paper, but i think most cool is electronic variant of this.
There are many such program i will show how to use anki for pc and same anki there is for android.
http://ankisrs.net/ - site where you can download program for pc.
for phone you can get it from play market https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ichi2.anki&hl=ru
i think you will able to install it and first start.
lets begin the interesting part how to create cards in MS Excel and import it to program.
1. First of all you create table in excel where: 1 column is question (you can use <br> tag to break line), second is answer (you can use <br> tag to break line)
2. Than you safe it as Unicode text
3. Next you open it in notepad++ (or same) http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.7.5.html and change encoding to UTF-8 without BOM and save file.
4. Next you open Anki on PC and create deck (give to it meaning name) and open this deck
5. Click File -> Import . Select file file from step 3 and open. Next configure option to import (i show options i choose in picture)
6. Next you can study this deck on pc, but i like use this program from phone for this next steps:
7. Click File - > Export
8. Select deck you need (for example just created). some options for you need.
9. Press Export...
10. Upload file from step 9 to Android phone.
11. Click from file manager on this file (i have already opened Anki on phone and already swap start instruction)
12. Confirm add to anki
13. See you deck on phone where i like to study it.

Study process:
1.tap on deck
2. Click begin study
3. See question try to remember answer, if you excellent tap easy, if good - tap good, if not tap bad and do it daily basis
4. After some time question you know good will be meat less time.

I think the best way is use hand made excel file where you write your description to method.
I give screenshot of phone that in my language because when i made it i cant figure how to change language at pc version, but in phone when you install you can chose (or use default phone language or change later (sorry i find it to late))
also you can write your parser if you can.
(i want give it but i make some changes and my program not work now )))) when i make it work i return to this question)

Flash cards can indeed be very useful in your preparation, certainly when you have a limited amount of time or don't have any computer/laptop available. You can use them really everywhere: on the train, in the waiting room of the dentist or doctor,...

I don't use any tool to create them, but just handwrite them for mainly 2 reasons:
  • when writing by hand you can do everything what you want very easily: add some code, use black color for keywords, underline, use green color for types from the Java API, add some additional notes using a pencil,...
  • I learn better by handwriting than typing (but that's personally)


  • For those who want to use an app to create their flash cards: besides Anki you have a bunch of other flash cards apps with similar functionality. You'll find some of them (with a little review) here.

    Hi Wagner Fonseca,

    First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

    Thanks for sharing your flash cards. I assume you shared it on Anki? Maybe if lots of exam aspirants are interested, we can keep track of all shared flash card decks for the OCA exams and list them for example in the OcajpFaq. What do you think? Good or bad idea?

    If we plan to monitor the shared flash card decks, it's probably best to use a naming convention as we currently have 2 OCA exams and things you need to know for OCA8 you might not need to know for OCA7 and vice versa. So I would suggest to start the name of the shared flash card deck with OCA7 or OCA8.

    Other suggestions, tips or recommendations? Just reply and share them with us!

    Kind regards,
    Roel

    PS. If we start sharing flash card decks, you'll get the credit of sharing the very 1st one

    I think it excellent idea. (i had pass already, but now start prepare to OCJP - much more api, thats why i start use flash cart much intensively and find it very useful, i use flash cards in my own language (description of method) - so can`t share it).

    Hi Danilo Fava,

    The flash cards shared by Wagner Fonseca (which you can find here) can be used for both the OCA7 (1Z0-803) and OCA8 (1Z0-808) exams. The flash cards shared by Jeanne Boyarsky are intended for the OCP7 (1Z0-804) exam (and can be used for the OCP8 exam as well).

    Hope it helps!
    Kind regards,
    Roel
