📖Spaced Repetition for Efficient Learning

Gwern Branwen
  • Spaced repetition is good for medicine because you are expected to memorize a ton of information and the curriculum is standardized (so you can use pre-made decks)
  • Knowledge is a compound interest. If you work a little bit harder every day, you will gain much more results.

    The more you know, the more you learn; the more you learn, the more you can do; the more you can do, the more the opportunity. —Richard Hamming, You and Your Research

  • Spaced repetition is for maintaining the level, not achieving new levels.
  • Spaced repetition seems to help both recall and abstraction.
  • Spacing is best in intellectual, highly-factual domains
