An interesting article about memory and learning:

Plan accordingly with your studies. Take the time to layer knowledge, circle back frequently, and consume consciously.

    "The “forgetting curve,” as it’s called, is steepest during the first 24 hours after you learn something. Exactly how much you forget, percentage-wise, varies, but unless you review the material, much of it slips down the drain after the first day, with more to follow in the days after, leaving you with a fraction of what you took in." This speaks volumes.

    Great article, thanks!

    Circling back to past material is key to mastery. I believe "spaced repitition" is based on this concept. When you revisit old material, you will see them with a new perspective. Skipping strategies center around this concept as well.
