Repetition Improves Learning

Sayings such as "Practice makes perfect" illustrate the fact that repetition improves learning. When we are learning a new topic, repetition as a tool to help memorize and store away the information in our long term memory for later retrieval is important. Retention of information improves as a function of the number of times the information has been studied. Repeat and review your study materials, the book, the notes, or the tapes at least three times. Practice makes perfect!
