Day 10: How to study in action

As I always think that implementing something new is the best way to find out if it works for me or not, I hereby provide you the following set of actions. I only concentrate on the flash cards, the part of how to ward of tiredness and the books to purchase come another time.

To do’s

  1. Decide if there is something you really wish to learn (perhaps something complex like how integral calculations work is not a topic you can handy fit on a flash card, but learning a new language and creating the cards with the different set of words you want to learn might be a good way). I always wanted to know the names of the different countries in the world, their main capitals and their flags, which I shall create flashcards for.
  2. Watch the flash card system video to see how it works.
  3. Use the flashcards for study. Decide when you want to start learning. If you have a question correct it goes to a pile to review the next day. If you got it correct the second time it moves up a slot to revise after every second day, then once per week, then once bi-weekly and lastly review before the exam (I don’t have a review, so I shall skip that pile). Incorrectly answered cards shift all the way back to review every day.
  4. After 4 weeks, decide if you like this system of fact learning.
