Over the years, millions of users (and dozens of publishers) have created billions of flashcards on Brainscape. Finding the right ones for you would be overwhelming, were it not for two key tools that can help you navigate.
When you visit the Brainscape Marketplace (e.g. by clicking Find Flashcards on the website), you will see a Search bar at the top of the screen. There, you can search for any Class (e.g. Biology) or Standardized Test (e.g. MCAT) where you are looking for a well-organized flashcard curriculum.
Search results are organized based on "quality", as perceived by our indexing algorithms. We look at dozens of factors (e.g. the amount of content, the number of people studying, the credibility of the creator, and the thoughtfulness of the way the flashcards are organized) when determining which Classes show up at the top of Search results.
You can easily "dig into" any Class to see its Decks and Flashcards. If a particular Class doesn't look right for you, you can simply go back to the Search results or perform another Search.
On the website, we also allow users to explore a hierarchical content tree called the Knowledge Genome. This can be used if you want to get a better idea of the types of subjects Brainscape offers, e.g. by digging down the tree from Science → Geology → Rocks, and then exploring all the Classes created by users for each subject.
In the future, we plan to add new ways to filter Search results and better identify Classes that are relevant to you, such as identifying the School, Book, or Grade Level of the flashcards.
If you are looking for flashcards created by a specific friend, classmate, or teacher, go to our website and visit any Market (i.e. "Find Flashcards") page. Then look in the footer and click on the Creators Directory. There, you can browse for the user's name, click on their Profile, and join any Class that they have on their account.
We don't yet have a Search feature for the Creators Directory, but if you think that would be extremely helpful to you (and worth Brainscape engineers' time) versus just browsing user names, then please mention it in the comments below, and we'll see what we can do!
