study information recall

Study Information Recall

With a new concept being taught, if no study is done within 24 hours, on average, we can forget up to 80% of what was taught.

However if the concept is studied within 24 hours it will take 7 days before 80% of the new concept is forgotten.

If you study the new concept a second time, within 7 days, it takes 30 days to forget 80% of the new material.
