Use Behavior Analysis methods to back these up.


Well to start, you are not citing anything cientific or tested, as far as I know, so there is no right or wrong way as to get better or worse results. I.e, there is no "efficiency" related to any variable.

A quick reading can get you an initial understating of what is to "study" something. Long story short: To question A you can answer 1, 2, 3, 4,5....which 23 is correct.

You vary and repeat this question until you are presented to it in a test and answer 23, the correct one.

In regards to the word "vary" I used, you should modify the question in ways to make the answer 23 "generalizable" to a set of questions. In this way, we could say you "learned to respond correctly to the question" or any question in its category (trigonometry for example).

As to Repeat you should face this question sometimes to make it stick. ("do the homework", or, "I've been doing this for 20 years kid).

What Feynman technique gives us is a method not for doing exactly these, but working with any question contents, which is proven to make you "forget less" and maybe generalize it a bit more. (citation needed here)

As I said, there is no "official" or scientific way to use it. What I use to say is, if your brain is aching, you are learning. This can be done in infinite ways.

Maybe the best way to apply these techniches are by doing them without skipping steps and doing hard work .
