Think of it like walking through a forest of memories. Every time you want to access a memory, you have to trace the neural pathway in order to find it. Each time you trace that memory, the pathway gets etched in a little more — just like how a dirt pathway naturally forms when people walk the same path over and over. If you stop walking the pathway, it can fade away and the memory ends up lost somewhere in the forest.Computer Science Computer Science Computer Science Computer Science Computer Science

Setting aside all of the pop psychology, here’s the takeaway: when it comes to programming, it’s not enough to learn a topic just once or twice. You have to revisit it dozens or even hundreds of times. Each review etches that topic into your brain a little bit deeper.

I know how hard this can be if you’re a natural crammer, but you’ll be surprised how fast you start retaining material once you make an effort to review it regularly.
