Testing before you have had a chance to learn primes your brain for when you then hear an answer to retain it – especially if you get stuff wrong.

There are many different techniques to memorize or study effectively but this method especially the process is more effective. STIC is a mnemonic of
S - Spacing
T - Testing
I - Interleaving
C - Categorizing
(but it's more interesting when we apply as TSCI)
Spacing or Spaced Reputation is one of the most famous and effective technique to memorize stuff. It's a process if you learned anything new today and to give some space and repeat the same in next week, then next months, then next 6months and you'll remember this long term.
