No. Most of the content in BrainBOK is dynamically generated, and cannot be downloaded or printed. It is meant for online use only.
Any card that you bookmark, mark correct, or mark incorrect counts toward your overall progress. Any unmarked cards are considered not reviewed. The horizontal progress bar at the top of the Flashcards tab shows your overall progress in numbers and percentage.

The objective is to have all 2100 cards marked correct before your exam.
No, we do 'not' offer the flashcards in hard-copy or PDF format. Most of the content in BrainBOK is dynamically generated, and cannot be downloaded or printed. It is meant for online use only.
The cards that are starred (bookmarked) by most number of users are the top-bookmarked cards. Any time a user stars a card, it is counted as a +1 toward the rating of that card. Eventually as more and more users star the cards, the most-important, and best quality cards would rise to the top. We encourage you to make the good use of this feature.
When you bookmark (star) a card, or mark it as correct (thumbs up) or incorrect (thumbs down), it is considered 'marked' or reviewed. When the 'Unmarked only' option is enabled (which is the default), 'marked' cards are not shown.

This option is designed to allow you to review all the cards without having them repeat multiple times. So as you go through the cards, mark each card as correct or incorrect (or simply bookmark it) so that it doesn't repeat. This way the system would know that you have seen the card before and would not present it again. When you want to see all cards including the 'marked' ones, simply toggle OFF the 'Unmarked only' option.
If you spot a problem - inaccurate information, typos, grammatical mistakes, layout problems, etc. - with any flashcard, use the 'Send Feedback' button available at the bottom right corner of the flashcard.

You do not need to type the content of the card. The system automatically does that in the background. All you need to do is to type the problem and hit the Send button.
