You have now received the information you need to develop the strategies you already use to ensure you remember the course material.
The process of remembering is drawn as a loop because it is a process you will be involved in of continually reviewing, revising, rehearsing and retrieving the information as you begin to remember the material. The information must be moved from your short-term memory to your long-term memory where you can recall it at any given time, including during the examination (see the following section, ‘Recall’, for more details). The time spent, and even the techniques used, will vary from one student to the next. This section will offer a range of examples that some students have found useful. Some of these techniques will be more effective than others. There are no right or wrong techniques. Every student is different; therefore you need to work out for yourself which are the most effective techniques.
