Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Alva Edison, Wright Brothers, James Watt, Ernest Hemingway, And Rabindranath Tagore are people who we always remember, but do you know these people are self taught? Yes!

The testing effect:-
This technique is the best for long term memory. Often with the help of retrieving knowledge you once learned. This improvement in knowledge with the help of test taking is called testing effect. It helps in Strengthening and stabilising the related neural patterns in the brain.

It is a kind of mindset which is restricted to a repeated use of true and tried strategies to solve a problem. It just stops your brain from working on it’s own and reduces creativity while making Solutions.
The Hard Start Jump to Easy Technique:
Kids are suggested to solve the easier questions first so that you don’t get demoralised at the start phase of the test. Rather start with a difficult one and when you get stuck then switch to the easier one. Then after solving it switch back to the difficult one. This will help you activate your brain and make it work well.
