How Brainscape helps you to learn faster and remember for longer

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information in a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of WSET ® Level 1 content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
