What is Spaced Repetition?

Spaced Repetition is a system used in conjunction with Flashcards for learning and retaining information. Spaced Repetition attempts to optimize how often a fact needs to be reviewed.

If a fact is not reviewed soon enough, it will be forgotten and must be relearned. This results in lots of wasted time. Conversely, if a fact is reviewed too often, although committed to memory, there is the wasted effort of continuing to review a fact.

Many Flashcard based systems recommend Spaced Repetition, however it is time-consuming and error-prone to manage review times manually - better to allow software to manage it for you.

The world memory champion Dominic O'Brien uses a spaced repetition review system based on review periods of 2 hours, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 3 months.

If you want a simple, free and easy to use spaced repetition system to help you remember those important facts, try MemShot.
