What is Quizlet exactly? We start with flash cards. Students can make their own, or choose from millions of flash cards sets created by others. But that’s just the beginning – once you’ve got flashcards, you can use several study modes including multiple choice tests and study games. You can add images and listen to audio, and even study on the go with one of dozens of Quizlet-compatible mobile apps.
Students are the core of Quizlet. High school and college students, language learners, grad students, home school students, anyone studying anything. Quizlet makes it easy to create and share study materials, to study with a few friends or an entire class. And Quizlet is good for studying almost any subject, from languages and vocabulary to history to science and the arts.

I wouldn't say that it could be used for every subject matter, but certainly the majority of them. I think the main reason they Quizlet has the appeal it does is because of the ease of use for teachers and the ability to create tests/quizzes from it, but also that for students it is not your typical flashcard.
Quizlet allows you to generate cards quickly, while even searching for an exact definition.
I like that the cards can be customized to your own wording if desired, and you can even assign the cards to be made at home for homework or in the computer lab during one of your computer class days!
I highly recommend the flash cards and the generation process, and the self-quizzing process that allows students to study on their own without the assistance of an adult. I literally tell my students that there is no excuse not to study their vocabulary terms if their parents or siblings are unable to assist them since the computer can act as an outside party to generate and quiz them on their terminology knowledge!
While quizlet is a useful tool for teachers, it is not a resource that I would use for every classroom. As an ESL teacher, I could create a series of flashcards to be used as a study tool for my students outside of the classroom. I would encourage my students to use this tool at home to practice various English vocabulary.
This is a good tool for extra practice for my students!
One the features I really like is the multiple print options. Its great that you can print these as actual flashcards, but when you have a really large set, this can be expensive. There is an option to print the terms as a vocabulary list, using less printer ink.
This site produces better-quality flash cards than other similar sites I have visited. There seems to be more structure to the way the application creates the layout. It is also easier to use. I would definitely rate Quizlet as the top site for flashcards.
