Spaced repetition is one of the few evidence-based learning techniques you can actually trust will help you remember things better. In this short tutorial, we are going to use Roam Research to build a simple spaced repetition system from your notes.

1. Create your box

You need a box with five sections to put your flashcards in. Create a new page, then type:

  • [[SRS1]]
  • [[SRS2]]
  • [[SRS3]]
  • [[SRS4]]
  • [[SRS5]]

Each bullet point is a box. SRS stands for Spaced Repetition System.
