Why is RecallPlus effective?
RecallPlus has been designed to be the most effective study software, using five main principals:
The key to all study is being organized. The RecallPlus helps you summarize your notes into easy-to to-remember formats. Accessing your notes becomes easy using the Knowledge Tree and our great search engine. This way you don't need to re-read text books and have a massive paper trail to wade through at exam time.
Research shows that our brain is more comfortable in remembering items that are linked by associations than by any other method. By using a series of linked textboxes you can create a map of your study notes in RecallPlus. You are not only summarizing your notes, you are also imitating the way your brain works when it remembers information.
Everyone is capable of remembering information, although we start to forget it after a while. So those old methods of revising information regularly over a short period of time are less effective than the RecallPlus patented testing system.
Our self testing system is based on the theory that you are more likely to recall vast amounts of information if you learn it at ever increasing intervals. So RecallPlus has a time code that tests you at optimal times, so at exam time you can recall the information you need easily and effortlessly.
Self Testing at optimal times
The RecallPlus testing facility allows you to slowly reveal the maps of information you have created, making it easier to remember the visual sequences. Once you have finished testing you assess yourself by checking the text boxes containing information you've had difficulty with. RecallPlus then places more emphasis on that information and tests you more regularly until you have mastered it.
Radical Study Breaks
Contrary to popular belief, spending large chunks of time at your computer is far less effective than taking regular breaks. After a while your concentration starts to wander as the brain becomes fatigued. So by taking breaks you keep your concentration and learning at the maximum level.
Some research also suggests that if a student is interrupted half way through learning a topic, they are more likely to remember it than if they had finished learning before taking a break.
RecallPlus prompts you to take breaks at optimal times.
