What You Really Need to Know

Becoming an Expert Learner


Traditional methods of studying do not always serve students very well. SpacedRepetition.com uses electronic flashcards, which work with an algorithm based on a century of research. Spaced Repetition users remember a projected 92% of material — and not just for a few days, but for as long as they use it. It’s also not nearly as time consuming as cramming, so students learn far more in far less time. In collaboration with Spaced Repetition Systems and exclusive to LawHub Advantage subscribers, KnowB4UGO will introduce you to a proven memorization method and help you use it to learn terms you’ll need to know during your first year of law school.
