  • Spaced repetition and active recall are the combination that make studying effective in the long term.
  • The forgetting curve gets less steep every time we repeat something
  • The bigger spacing between repetitions has a key reason: There is a sweet spot for repetition where we vaguely recall the information but still need to put effort in to retreive it. This is where learning is most effective. As the forgetting curve gets less steep as we go, the timing to hit this sweet spot also moves further and further into the future.
