Leaving Cert MindMaps are structured course summaries that I developed during my Leaving Cert preparation during 2011/2012 for my own personal use. They are visual representations of all key information you need to know to achieve “straight A’s” in your Leaving Cert. I continue to enhance the MindMaps for use by current and future Leaving Cert students and you will find that technical subjects contain lots of original diagrams and charts that I have created (and continue to create) to make the subject matter easier to understand and remember. This all takes time and so I will be releasing the MindMaps one subject at a time as they become ready for use by students. For those of you that prefer to use Flashcards as an aide de memoire, I am concurrently developing Flashcards that cover broadly the same material. These will not become available until 2017.
Standard versions are being developed in PDF format but enhanced versions are also being developed in MindGenius format. The latter allows students to download a free copy of MindGenius Viewer onto their computer/laptop and to display the MindMaps in native Mind Mapping format on their computer screens. This allows the information within each MindMap to be revealed one branch or one level at a time. Both versions are now available for purchase.The enhanced MindGenius versions facilitate students by allowing notes to be added to each individual MindMap file so that they may be printed with this additional personalised information. You can truly make the MindMaps your own. Printing can be organised across multiple pages so that wall charts can be created simply by selo-taping pages together. You may also print one branch at a time on regular A4 paper. This will cut down significantly on printing costs. The original MindMap diagram cannot be changed and I will be retaining my copyright to all original MindMaps.To purchase the Higher or Ordinary Level version of any subject, please visit the shop by clicking on the “shop” button on the top navigation bar.
Biology MindMaps was the first subject to be published on this website and became available for purchase in early 2013. Chemistry became available in late 2013. Other subjects will follow as I complete them. The next batch are due for publication before the end of 2014 – Business and Geography. Student versions of all Mindmaps have been reduced to 12.95 Euro per subject in our summer sale. This is way cheaper than a single grind and will work for you all year long!
“The Leaving Cert Chemistry Mindmaps created by Tammy Strickland are superb resources for both teachers and students. The student set provide the students with very clear and detailed analysis of each section. It offers a welcomed new alternative to revision books and the students have told me it makes the large course look less daunting. The teacher set is one of the best revision tools I’ve come across, as it not only revises a topic but also helps students with vital study skills which could be used in other subjects. As a class activity I revised Organic Chemistry with my Leaving Certs using the teacher set and put the student’s mindmaps on the wall of the lab. I plan to repeat this with other sections of the course and develop a revision wall. From a teacher’s perspective the Leaving Cert Mindmaps have really helped my students reach their potential and improve their grades and the students have told me that they love them.”
“I appreciate your response & will keep an eye on your site for French & Irish when ready. It really is a great product & I wish you every success for it.”
“Hey, I would jus like to say I find these maps extremely helpful and they have improved my grades!”
“Very best of luck with remaining subjects – it’s a great resource.”
“I purchased all your mind maps from you 2 years ago for my son junior cert and found them brilliant, I am now interested in the English for Leaving Cert.”
“Just wondering if you have any Leaving Cert mind maps for sale? Bought Junior Cert ones May 2011 and found them very useful.”
