A majority of students typically re-read assignments and notes as their number one go-to strategy. Yet, is this method effective? Studies have shown that repetitive recycling of information is not an especially good way to learn or create more permanent memories. In fact,  when they re-read a textbook chapter -they have absolutely no improvement in learning over those who just read it once.

So why do students still do it? What is the solution? Is rereading all that bad?
