Overlearn

46. Spend some time with new material a few hours after you’ve been introduced to it. Review notes and try to consolidate the notes into a broad concept or idea.

47. Review notes and other information at intervals throughout the next few days. This is called “Spaced Rehearsal” or “Spaced Repetition,” and it’s a more effective method for learning than cramming.

48. Review material until it becomes second nature. The best way to accomplish this task is to discuss material with another person.

49. When you use overlearning, you improve recall speed.

Retain a Positive Attitude

50. If you don’t want to learn something, chances are you won’t learn it.

51. Tell yourself that you want to learn and that you can learn and remember the information at hand.

52. If you constantly tell yourself and others that you have a bad memory, this action actually hampers the ability of your brain to remember.

53. A positive outlook and positive mental feedback sets up an expectation for success.
