Revision Plan

We forget almost 70% of the things after 24 hours. So we need a revision plan. Whenever we revise something it takes less time than the previous. According to the study, after reading something, we must revise that within 24 hours then within a week, then within 1 month after that whenever you need it. If you revise the thing within the specified time then the thing will go to your long-term memory.
