Active recall is the most effective way to study.

It’s something I bring up a lot because it’s super important and almost never appreciated by students.

Active recall is just practicing remembering stuff.

It guarantees you’ve learned whatever you’re studying. That means, when you sit down with your heart racing as a test gets dropped in front of you… you know that you know what you need to know. 😀

I got another one of those life-affirming emails from one of the readers this week. I just want to send out my own little thank you to all of you.

Thank you!

And those are the strategies I’d like to teach you…
