What I learned in class....

Research on memory and learning suggests that recall is enhanced by reviewing class material as soon after class as you can. Thus, you may be able to spend 5-10 minutes reviewing class notes right after class, but if you put it off until just before the test, the same recall may require several hours.

From personal experience I would suggest that this works even if it is only mentally. For instance, while going home from class, try to remember a few things that you learned in class (time commitment near zero). I think you will be amazed at how well it works!

Good luck!
