    It shows that many of the methods a lot of us were taught growing up, such as re-reading and cramming, are not really effective at all.

    Very informative book, it bases the righr way to learn on data and facts.

    The authors make the following claims: (1) learning is deeper and more durable when it is effortful, (2) we are poor judges of when we are learning well, (3) retrieval practice (recalling facts or concepts or events from memory) is a more effective learning strategy than review by rereading, (4) periodic practice stops forgetting, (5) interleaving the practice of two or more subjects makes retrieval harder but produces longer-lasting learning, (6) trying to solve a problem before being taught the solution leads to better learning, (7) you build better mastery when you use testing as a tool to identify your areas of weakness, (8) making mistakes and correcting them leads to advanced learning.

    The way we instinctively try to teach ourselves new material (repeated exposure, re-reading notes or highlighted content) makes us feel like we've mastered the material, but in reality most of the material will not stick past a few days or weeks.

    It also does a good job for laying out a case as to the deficiency of the current education system and just how broken it is, although they left that to lawmakers to figure out.
