Which less popular study strategies are really effective? And when are they best applied?

Find out in discussion with expert author and maths teacher, Amarbeer Singh Gill.

Part 2 of the Memory & Learning series here on the Exam Study Expert podcast this month:

Today, we’re welcoming Amarbeer Singh Gill, author of “Dunlosky’s Strengthening The Student Toolbox In Action”, to help us unpick some of less well-known (but still very useful!) strategies from John Dunlosky’s famous 2013 review of the most effective study strategies.

Join us to learn when (and how) to use strategies like:

  • Elaborative interrogation
  • Self-explanation
  • Mental imagery
  • Summarisation
  • Interleaving and other tips for studying maths
