Printable, Math and Physics Flash Cards by Jason Underdown.

From the introduction:

Click on the links below to download PDF files containing double-sided flash cards suitable for printing on common business card printer paper. If you don’t have or don’t want to buy special business card paper, I have also included versions which include a grid. You can use scissors or a paper cutter to create your cards.

The definitions and theorems of mathematics constitute the body of the discipline. To become conversant in mathematics, you simply must become so familiar with certain concepts and facts that you can recall them without thought. Making these flash cards has been a great help in getting me closer to that point. I hope they help you too. If you find any errors please contact me at the email address below.

Some of the decks are works in progress and thus incomplete, but if you know how to use LaTeX, the source files are also provided, so you can add your own flash cards. If you do create new flash cards, please share them back with me. You can contact me at the address below. Special thanks to Andrew Budge who created the “flashcards” LaTeX class which handles the formatting details.

Quite delightful!

What areas do you think are missing for IR, statistics, search?

As a markup hand, XML, XSLT, XPath 2.0 spring to mind.

I suspect you would learn as much about an area authoring cards as you will from using them.

If you make a set, please post and send a note.
