1 | Spaced Repetition- if we see the same information multiple times over increasing intervals, we’ll be far more effective at encoding those facts into long term memory.
2| Active Recall- Test yourself very often even during revisions, don't passively read rather actively test
3| Elaboration- refers to further describing and explaining various ideas or concepts that you’re studying to solidify your understanding of the material.
4| Interleaving- is the practice of alternating your studying from one topic to another rather than blocking time for only one subject for an extended period of time
There are two main ways to study effectively :
Spaced repetition :
There is a forgetting curve for all of us. So every few days the information has to be recalled.
Active recall :
Active recall is done by testing ourselves about the information which helps retain it much longer.
When you explain and describe an idea in your own words, you consciously associate what you want to learn with what you've already learned.
Why it works: It encodes information into your long-term memory more effectively. The more you connect new knowledge to what you already know, the better because it generates more cues that help you retrieve the knowledge.
How to apply it: Ask yourself questions like "How can I apply this to my own life?" and "In what situations would this be useful?"
