Flashcards for [Mankiw's Macroeconomics] by N. Gregory Mankiw et al.
This part of the textbook companion site uses Shockwave to administer tests on definitions of key terms. After selecting a textbook chapter, the student is given a stack of cards which link terms to their definitions. These cards can be dragged into a "learned" area, and when the student is ready the site challenges them to match the terms with the definitions they think they have learned.
