New research proves that repeated practice is more effective than repeated study. Collins Revision provides better exam preparation using spaced practice methods.
[/pullquote]How does it work?
Recently published papers* strongly agree about what actually works: repeated practice testing and spaced practice testing are consistently cited as having the most impact on results in relation to time invested.
The evidence emphatically shows that groups of students who follow a programme of repeat, spaced practice testing consistently achieve higher results in final tests than groups of students using alternative techniques. Practice testing can leave students feeling insecure if they get a question wrong.
However, this is part of the process – if they answer a question incorrectly at an early stage, providing they get quality feedback, they are much more likely to answer the same or similar questions correctly at a later stage and in the actual exam.
