Spaced Repetition Time Intervals can be practiced using:

A recent theory on forgetting states that everything we learn remains in storage inside our memory, but our ability to recall and retrieve that information fades if we do not practice fetching information.
Studying takes too much time, and there is only a limited number of hours. Spaced repetition method uses time intervals and makes you recall more information, using less time.
The spacing effect maximizes learning and your study becomes more efficient and consumes less time.
If there's a test coming up in the next 7 days, the recommended way to study: 3 to 4 sessions with spaces in between, instead of studying non-stop for 7 days.
This way, you study less, yet retain more for the day of the test.
Preparation steps before a note-taking session:
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?"
