Love Cryptic Crosswords for beginners. It is a great document with hints and tricks. Amy assures us we are not cheating but LEARNING and I love love love it! Using a tablet with a pen to write over pdf makes it fun to fill in on screen too!
I'm so glad it's useful, Anne-Marie! And the PDF technique is a great idea :)
Perfect! I got this for my 5 year old nephew who has become obsessed with wanting to know what every flag is for! It’s nice and clear decent size pictures! He’s going to love it!
I'm so glad it's useful, Wendi!
To me, flash cards are ones that have the answer on the back of the card. These are useful, but I cannot call them flash cards. I will continue making my flash cards by hand, I guess. A file that has the ability to be downloaded and to have the design of a real flash card would be very nice and would then get five stars. I have written to Amy, myself, so this is not new to her from me.
Harriet, I'm sorry these aren't what you expected. I fold mine in half to quiz myself during the learning process. I'm not sure what your last sentence means, though, because I don't have any messages about this from you or anyone else.
Cool concept for work trivia!
I'm glad you like it!
