The three most important facts about SuperMemo:
  1. SuperMemo is a learning method that makes it possible to learn fast and retain memories for years
  2. SuperMemo is available as an easy computer program for Windows, Windows CE, and Palm Pilot. It can also be used in a web browser, in DOS, in Linux, on Mac, on Amiga, and even without a computer
  3. SuperMemo is based on the science of long-term memory

This is how SuperMemo works:

  1. Collect learning material

    SuperMemo helps you create collections of facts that you would like to remember. You can use ready-made collections available from <a href="">various sources</a>. You can also <a href="../articles/devour.htm">convert web articles into learning material</a>  

  2. Test your memory

    SuperMemo tests your knowledge of individual facts and collects information about your memory

  3. Make smart repetitions

    By understanding your memory, SuperMemo finds the optimum timing for review of the learned material. Each fact stored in your collection will have a unique pattern of review and repetition

  4. Save time

    With minimum number of repetitions scheduled for you by SuperMemo, you waste no time on repeating material you know well. You will be amazed with what speed and volume of learning you can reach. All that without a decrease in recall
