The Science

Unused knowledge fades over time. Studies suggest that normally 40% of new information is forgotten within 1 hour of learning it. This increases to 70% within 24 hours and 90% after 1 week. This is known as the "forgetting curve", discovered by Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1885.

The original findings have been replicated to confirm the forgetting curve is still relevant today. Studies show that memory recollection can be improved by frequently reviewing information.

StayReady has considered this research and send you frequent bite-size information, to reinforce your knowledge.
