The spaced repetition

This method is based on the concept of the forgetting curve , invented by the German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus. This stipulates that when you memorize information for the first time, there is little chance that it will remain engraved in your memory. On the other hand, if you study it again before it has time to pack up, you increase your chances of retaining it…

This process is to be repeated several times at precise and sufficiently spaced intervals . To revise too soon would be useless, but to revise too late would be less effective.

On the front of a FLASH 2.0 flashcard , write a question that you could potentially be asked on a knowledge test, and on the back, the information you need to remember (dates, definitions, notions, principles/exceptions). Be concise , the goal is not to rewrite your course on your little flashcard but to give you material to develop your oral answer.
