Dr Candice Morey explains what Psychology can tell us about studying effectively
Is there such a thing as too much revision?
It’s a week before your first exam and you’ve been hitting the books hard but you just can’t seem to remember Bandura’s Social Learning Theory for the life of you, no matter how many times you read over your lecture notes.
Could it be that you’ve revised too much? Cramming our brains with as much information as possible can actually make it more difficult to retain that information.
Dr Candice Morey has some advice for improving memory, learning and knowledge retention.
