What are the advantages and disadvantages of a flowchart?

Answer

Flowcharts offer the advantage of allowing one to map out the links among various ideas, although it is easy for flowcharts be overcomplicated when there are too many details. If a flowchart tracks an analysis with multiple branches and the chart moves from one step to the next by answering "Yes" or "No" questions, then a flowchart is useful. However, an excess of details can make the chart illegible.

An alternate study tool to a flowchart is the flash card. If memorization is required to complete tasks flash cards are an ideal substitute. Flowcharts are difficult to follow if there is a lot of detail written out, but flash cards help organize information just as efficiently. Simply writing down the information helps one ingrain data into the memory. However, a stack of flash cards does not help one get a look at the "forest" because all one has is a pile of "trees" on hand to learn.

The reason for multiple types of learning tools is that multiple types of learning takes place and every learner is different. Pick and choose from different strategies based on the material being studied when attempting to learn information and concepts. Using multiple methods at once is the most effective way to retain information.
