5 best study techniques for facts

Group many individual facts together meaningfully in a few "chunks". Our Brain likes groups, not random bits.


Spaced Repetition

Repeat facts in your head and out loud with increasing intervals: 5 min, 20 min, 1 hour, 8 hours, 2 days


Testing Effect

Facts you are tested on are remembered better than untested facts. Do mock tests and quizzes to verify your knowledge.


Production Effect

Facts you write down and say out loud  have higher recall. Tell others what you learn so your body "produces" the facts.


Schema activation

Schemas are mental templates of context + old facts. New facts fit into old schemas in a web, so learn contextual details. More context = stronger schema.
