Does cramming work

Does Cramming work?

  • NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!!

  • Studies show a 5% increase in GPA for each hour studied (Stinebrickner)

  • Cramming does not work because it overloads the brain

  • It cannot remember the new information; only old information

  • The brain only remembers in 5 mins.

  • it will not remember the information crammed into it afterwards.

  • If you review each day, new material will be stored and refreshed each day
