Continuing Review

Apart from the immediate review, a continuing review programme is essential, and should be constructed in the light of the knowledge we have concerning memory as discussed in the chapter on Memory.

It was seen that memory did not decline immediately after a learning situation, but actually rose before levelling off and then plummeting.

Fig55 Graph showing that memory actually rises after learning, before declining sharply. See text this page.

This graph can be warped to your advantage by reviewing just at that point where the memory starts to fall. A review here, at the point of highest memory and integration, will keep the high point up for another one or two days and so on as explained on page 58, see also fig22.

Fig56 This graph shows how quickly forgetting takes place after something has been learned. It also shows how review can 'warp' this graph to enormous advantage. Seetextthispage.
