Study Tips

Hi! For those of you preparing for the CFPC exam, check out the 6 evidence-informed study strategies from The Learning Scientists:

1. Spaced Practice: Space out your studying over time.

2. Retrieval Practice: Practice bringing information to mind.

3. Elaboration: Explain and describe ideas with many details.

4. Interleaving: Switch between ideas while you study.

5. Concrete Examples: Use specific examples to understand abstract ideas.

6. Dual Coding: Combine words and visuals.
