Mixing your study can improve your ability to retain information.
By practising knowledge retrieval, it is possible to revise much more effectively.
Every time you re-study a topic, you make the information much easier to find and recall.
Retrieval practice is the act of trying to recall information without having it in front of you. Practice bringing information to mind for better results. It’s a great way to understand gaps in your knowledge so you can fill them before the exam.
Interleaving is the theory that by revising more than one topic in each session you will make better links between them. Interleaving strengthens memory association. Repeating this process can reinforce connections and enhances learning.
