In my opinion and in my experience, flash cards are an excellent tool for the USMLE exam - but having purchasing both pharm and micro cards in the past, it doesn't maximize the benefits you can gain from them. My suggestion would be to create your own flash cards... Write out key points, mnemonics, even draw pictures - whatever it takes to create great cards! The process of creating the cards will benefit you greatly and it will definitely make you a stronger student.

Best of luck!
