Spaced practice is the precise opposite of cramming. It's the repeated, regular study of a subject area over time. Most of us have ‘crammed’ for a test or exam at some point. With everything going on in our lives, we often neglect to study for tests and exams in advance. Instead, we choose intense and long study sessions the night before. However, not only are these cramming sessions exhausting and stressful – they are mostly ineffective in preparing us for the tests. Fortunately, there is a way to improve revision – spaced practice. Spaced practice involves revising content in small increments (10-60 minutes) at least once a week.
