Understanding the Forgetting Curve

Today marks the start of the official launch window for our experiential group course beginning on February 13. In this and future posts, we’ll be sharing strategies that you can adopt for improving your study practices, exam-taking skills, legal analysis, and legal writing, which will give you some insight into what it’s like to work with us—either in a group setting or one-on-one. (Read to the end for a surprise.)

We surveyed our students from last semester and they reported that confidence in their study plans had increased more than 100% as a result of the course. Why? Because we teach a 5-step weekly study plan that focuses on prioritizing the most beneficial study techniques deployed at the optimal time.

Students appreciated this so much last semester that we’re going to work one-on-one with every student this semester to create a custom study plan based on their class schedule and other commitments.

One action you can incorporate now is a post-class review. As most law professors primarily test students on the material covered in class, an initial step we recommend is to review your class notes as close to the end of class as possible. If you’re anything like us, sometimes your notes won't make sense or they’ll be incomplete. And the best time to polish your notes is right after class because of Ebbinghaus’ forgetting curve.


Having clear notes is only the first step of an optimized post-class review, but it’s an important one nonetheless.

If you haven’t been reviewing your class notes as close to class as possible, try setting aside a few minutes to do so this week and see how this strategy works for you.

If you like what you’ve read and think you might like to work with us, here is an early enrollment promo code for 20% off any plan: Spring2021. This promotion will cease on Friday.

Because we want to make sure Sui Generis is a good fit for you, you may cancel your enrollment and get a full refund after attending the first class and receiving your custom study plan.
