Whether you choose to study on Brainscapes' web or mobile app, our unique system asks you to score your own confidence and understanding of the subject matter covered. After you have covered each law school flash card the Brainscape system asks you to rate your confidence on a scale of 1-5. Brainscape then uses your own self-rated confidence as a guide to determine when the flashcard will be repeated. The spaced repetition algorithm, unique to Brainscape allows you to learn quicker and remember for longer.

Spaced Repetition & Cognitive Science
Brainscape is the most effective study system on the planet. Our system works by personalizing the timing of each flashcard you see. Instead of the more conventional bar exam courses, Brainscape uses a proprietary learning algorithm called Confidence-Based repetition (CBR). This means that bite-sized pieces of information are repeated at the correct frequency which is just right for you.
For example, let's say you were studying Marbury v. Madison and you were asked the year and decision. If you could not remember the year and did not understand the ruling at all you would perhaps score yourself a "1". Because you scored yourself a "1" then the flashcards would be repeated again perhaps in the next five or ten flashcards. After seeing the flashcard again you may upgrade your understanding level to a "2" which would have the effect of the flashcard being repeated less frequently. If you still could not remember or understand the case you would keep your rating as a “1”, until you understood the case more fully and were confident enough to move on.
CBR is a groundbreaking method of learning that is guaranteed by cognitive science research to help you learn faster and remember for longer. With CBR, concepts are always introduced stage by stage, depending on your particular study needs. There are no other apps on the market that apply this advanced learning science integrated with input from experts in the field.
Brainscape is free to try and you can study thousands of flashcards for free so fulfill your potential with Brainscape.
