The Polgar sisters: Training or Genius? by Cathy Forbes states that the main studying was the flash card method. (Chess: 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games by (the father)Laszlo Polgar [https://b-ok.cc/book/857033/54e4d4] provides the puzzles on the flashcards.)

The most important passage (IMO) is the Judith would continue using the flash cards on her free time. When told that she could leave the cards alone, she replied that that cards wouldn't leave her alone. The desire to improve is the most important factor in improvement.
