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. 😀
But some students don’t appreciate how powerful active recall can actually be.
That’s why I created a little unscientific test to try and prove it to you.
Is it perfect?
Far from it. That’s kinda’ why I’m sending it to the email list first. I trust your opinion on this more than anyone else. Right now it’s pretty bare bones. I want to make it better.
Do me a favor and reply to this email telling me if anything doesn’t work quite right for you? (Did it actually prove active recall works for you?)
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. I am so grateful that you take the time to read and learn from these emails. I share the ideas that changed my life and actually hearing they help you too makes this work totally worth it. Thank you!
