I would write them out my yourself based on the info your instructor wants you to know. Premade cards have tons of info that you may or may not need and you can't add little tidbits that you might need to know. I've never been a fan of supplemental study aids because I usually can't afford them. Making your own cards of so much cheaper because you can get a pack of 100 cards for like a dollar and you can learn by looking g everything up and writing it. You can't buy 100 premade cards for a buck!!
Speaking about supplementals...
I knew people with 5+ supplemental books that failed, later they admitted they poorly allocated their time and became overwhelmed with so many supplementals.
I honestly don't like them. Why? Because I want to know MORE in depth, a depth that nursing books sometimes unfortunately don't reach as it is and supplementals are even more condensed.
Thanks to Esme I downloaded the MedScape app and it's lovely!
In my last semester now I do have a comprehensive review book and it's pulling everything together... but it's by no means my learning source.
In my opinion? Make them yourself. Get some markers and colored pencils. Have some fun with it. You can even get them laminated. Don't fall into the trick of relying 100% on memory gimmicks Please make sure you understand your drugs and your life will be easier! =)
