The downloadable glossary for CORE’s course has proved very popular, and we have updated and improved it – see the download link above. But last year our students asked for more help in learning and revising our course, and a glossary spreadsheet isn’t very useful for that.
So we have also taken the glossary for Unit 1 to Unit 10 and broken it into pieces to make 12 flashcard sets to help you learn and revise: follow the other link above to access them. You will need to register for Quizlet, but it’s free and does not take long. So far we have published a set for each of the 10 units, one set featuring the key concepts in U1 to U10, and one monster set containing the definitions from the first 10 units – all 222 of them. You can learn using flashcards, games in which you match the word to the definition, and more. You can also download the excellent Quizlet app for iOS (right) or Android, so you can consult the glossary any time you want.
We’ll do the same for the second half of the course. But we’ve only just updated Units 10 to 16, and so it will take a little while.
Much of the hard work was done by second year UCL economics student Karl Overdick. He studied CORE last year, and has now volunteered his time to check and update the glossary files for us. (It turns out Karl has a talent for detailed and repetitive jobs.)
If you can think of more CORE revision aids that we can ask Karl to create – or, even better, would like to create one yourself and share it with us – please get in touch.
