A German psychologist
researched the memory and its mechanisms he described the forgetting curve which shows that just one hour after learning something new we forget more than half of the learned information. One day later we remember only about 30%, well you can see where this is going So how to remember everything there is a memorization technique called spaced repetition To keep some information in your head for a longer time you need to try to put it into your long-term memory.
Forced memorization is not very effective in this case because your brain can't make sense of the information quickly and form strong associations Here it all depends on the reason why you are learning something.
