Using the Leitner System with CTP Exam Flash Cards from TMExam
When studying for the Certified Treasury Professional Exam, TMExam recommends using the Leitner method of studying with Flash Cards
This widely used method to efficiently use flashcards was proposed by the German science popularized Sebastian Leitner in the 1970s and should help you as you prepare to pass the CTP exam. In his method, known as the Leitner system, CTP Exam flashcards should be sorted into groups according to how well you know the CTP Exam material on each one.
For example, suppose you have 3 groups called Group 1, Group 2 and Group 3. The cards in Group 1 are the ones that you often make mistakes with, and Group 3 contains the cards that you know very well. You might choose to study the Group 1 cards once a day, Group 2 every 3 days, and the Group 3 cards every 5 days. If you look at a Group 1 card and get the correct answer, you "promote" it to Group 2. A correct answer with a Group 2 card "promotes" that card to Group 3. If you make a mistake with a Group 2 or Group 3 card, it gets "demoted" to Group 1, which forces you to study that card more often.
