How it works

Scheduling and practicing go hand in hand. With eFaqt, you can not only summarize, make flashcards and exchange these, you can also schedule when you have to do your reviews. Today, we will briefly show you how this feature works within eFaqt.

  1. Personal Settings

When you click on your account name top right, you can view your preferences.. Here you can choose how long your study sessions should take, and how long your breaks should take. Also, you can choose how often your reviews should be planned.

 2. Chapters to practice

When you click: “Practice my summary”, you see this toolbar on the left. This tells you how much you know per chapter, and when you should review it. In my case, I only know 2% of the first chapter, and have missed my review 6 days ago. Based on this information, I can start scheduling my study sessions. Oops! Time to get started!

3. Why should I schedule?

Proper scheduling is essential to proper practicing. This is because your brain doesn’t retain everything easily. If you would remember everything, your brain would burst! Based on research on effective rehearsal, we have incorporated a recommended schedule for reviewing with our practicing tool. A little more info on this topic can be found in this blogpost, about how practicing works and why you should do it! Also, you can see how you can use our practice tool in this other tutorial blogpost. Now we believe, nothing can go wrong – Good luck!
