Why choose Spacing over Cramming for NEET PG study?

Long term study for NEET PG 2017

NEET PG 2017 Preparation

It is well understood by the learning theorists that you are more likely to retain something if you learn something separated over time. This method of learning is called spacing. Preparing for an exam like NEET PG 2017 conducted in November 2016, requires strategies to promote retention.

Practice tests are seen as a great way to achieve spaced learning for NEET PG. Mock exams simulate revision for the questions that you have already revised. It acts as a pretest for questions that you have not read theory yet.  Either way mock exams are used for spacing out learning.

Why spaced learning for NEET PG is promoted?

Cramming or massed learning is continuous learning without breaks or mock exams. Studies show that spaced learning is more effective than cramming, although most people did not think that this was logical. Repeating learning materials separated over time or spacing is effective for long term learning. Cramming is repeating learning intensively. Cramming can be effective near to exams. Mixing topics is more effective that reading the same topic over a long period, because this gives a spacing effect.

Why G2M power mock exams are best for spacing your study for NEET PG 2017?
