The MemoTrainer was created with Ebbinghaus’ theory in mind. He claimed that repetition was the secret to memorisation and created a scheme that would ensure that knowledge was stored in long-term memory. This is what the MemoTrainer is based on.

Review exercises are generated daily via MemoTraining for each participant individually. The questions you answer incorrectly return more often than those you answer correctly. Their progress is visible under Retention.

You can choose the days you want to practice, whether you receive a reminder in your mailbox and the maximum number of questions you want to receive per MemoTraining.

The MemoTrainer contains the practice questions you find with each block and the questions from the practice exam. As soon as you have completed a series of practice questions or the practice exam, these questions will be added to the MemoTrainer and you can start repeating them.
