Weakness: Doesn't show causation
Strength: Primary recency effect


Weakness: It show us what happens in every memory store but never why it happens or how.

It basically show that you remember the things you see first (long term memory) and the things you see last (sensory/short term memory) and everything in the middle will be easier to forget.
