Cramming is another term for _____, which is an inefficient form of studying.

A) serial studying.

B) buddy studying.

C) massed practice.

D) priming

A

Answer: A) serial studying.

Cramming is another form of serial studying, which is the process of learning or attempting to assimilate a lot of information into a person’s short-term memory usually just before a test or an examination.

The disadvantages of serial studying outweigh the advantages, and it is an ineffective form of learning.

Buddy studying, on the other hand, works the same way group studying does, in that a group of people read and share ideas with each other.

In priming, the principle relied upon is that of remembrance or association. An activity is carried out, at the same time as reading, such that the mind automatically associates said activity with the passage read.

In mass practice, the entire focus of the reader is on a particular passage or page.
