I’ve used spaced repetition and active recall help to memorize things that I already understand. It has been helpful to me.
Here is how I did it-:
I UNDERSTAND something.
I write short notes (version 1).
I read version 1 notes. And again write some notes (version 2).
I read notes version 2.
I again write notes (version 3) and read them.
I keep doing this as much time I have. Generally doing this for 3 times ensures I remember everything. But that doesn't really help with learning new content.
How can I use this to learn new topics?
