    What about active recall/retrieval practice? Can you make a video that drills more on what is considered scientifically proven efficient study methods (how our brains work when studying and the best ways to go about studying in terms of methods/techniques)? Or whether active recall really is considered really efficient or if there is something better? "Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning" comes to mind. Thank you for your helpful content!

    1. Generation Effect- Practice Test before study, you will be forced to provide an answer, and whether or not it is correct, you will remember it better if you got it wrong and learned the material after due to your brain wanting to avoid embarrassment 2. SPACING - space out your study eg. 1 hour on Monday and one hour on Friday, rather than 2 hours just on Friday 3. INTERLEAVED - practice multiple things even if it’s less study time for each thing

    so the technique is called "spacing" i did not know that but i have been using this technique for years without realising it so that's why im sometimes smart?? oh well

  • Morboxx

    There is an issue with number one: It does NOT work equally with all types of learning. It does work, if that test requires knowledge, but if it requires skills, it may not. If you require certain skills, the actual exercise might change every time. Specifically, I'm talking about language acquisition, which is my area of teaching. There, the tests that will actually require language skill instead of rote learning will ask you to understand texts, spoken language, write and perform orally. Writing a text or having a mock oral exam and failing tells you little about your actual mistakes. Reading might provide you with vocabulary that you're missing, but not with global reading skills any more than other reading does. Same for listening. Of course, mock tests in language acquisition have their place, mostly in getting to know the test specifics and finding out which areas of study need more work. But they won't help you perform much better. Generally, the video is great, though! I use the third tip a lot in my classes, especially concerning vocabulary, since knowing a word entails knowing ita relations to other words and learning several can be much easier and efficient than learning one context-free.

    The hypercorrection is actually true! I remember when I’ve made like a mistake in something and when I find out the right answer it sticks in my brain

    The spacing technique is what I call my knowledge "ripening." Like a fruit ripens. You might not get a topic right away, like if you learn something in the first semester or term, wait till the next semester or even the next year to see how well you understand the topic. It essentially ripens in your mind so that when you recall it, the accuracy often improves. And in the interim, you can try to see that concept in action: like if you've learned about projectile motion, you can observe a game where balls are tossed around quite often (cricket, baseball, volleyball...). For me, that is the most effective study technique.

    A similar concept to spacing can be done with books. If you read books (significantly) above your level, you will find that after you have struggled through them, many books become easy, and you can read more difficult books.

    When I was in Political Science class back in college the teacher gave every student a pre-test. It had most of the material from the final exam and I took full advantage from practicing. I aced that test! 😃 Basically I'm not great at preparing for tests. The act of filling out hundreds of note cards was a daunting task for me. I even tried typing everything down on Microsoft Word with a blank Notepad window blocking the answers.

    - Before you start learning the material, take a test to embarrass yourself so that you hypercorrect. - Space out study sessions by about a day - Whilst studying, change the material you learn every 30 minutes or so

    I was thinking of it lately because I found myself remembering/learning things effectively when I feel emotion about it. Just like making a mistake, felt embarassed about it. Also me in long discussions makes me sleepy. So I do naps when I feel about it for a minute. Even if I pissed my instructor and ask me questions afterwards, because its not my fault for being sleepy I was just making a solution by going with it. So when I woke up I was more energized to learn and I can think faster.

    Stop procrastinating and study for the test you have in 4 seconds

  • dropstick

    I have always been taking the test(practise test or exercises) before learning the material! Or just looking at the exercises. I've found out that whenever I took the actual test with a time limit in class I understood that the material isn't that hard and/or boring as it seemed to be before even opening my book. I thought like, "ah, well this actually seems quite easy, I just gotta know the answer." So I studied it all once I came home. I remembered everything much better from the first time. So now I always do it like this except for that it's not too late lol.
