How it Works
The spaced repetition system is a learning technique that will help you to learn more efficiently and more effectively whether you are studying for the bar or preparing for finals. The magic of the system is the spaced repetition algorithm that is working in the background as you study your flashcards. After clicking on the course area, you will view the front of a card, think about the answer, then flip the card (note: don't use it to learn new information - use it to review information already covered. Cards are for review after you've learned a concept in class) and finally, rate your accuracy/ease of finding the right answer in your head on a 0-5 scale. The algorithm then schedules the precise time for you to review that content again and will just show the next card in the stack.
While it is not important to understand how the algorithm works to use SpacedRepetition.com, if you are interested in learning more, you can check out this information sheet or watch a short video tour.
