Practice makes perfect is the old training adage

Learning is crucial for career success. Book recommendation: Moonwalking with Einstein, a fascinating look at building memory and memorization competitions.

Practice makes perfect is the old training adage. Which is still true, but with a slight twist. Changing things up a bit makes learning faster and better, according to a Johns Hopkins study. “What we found is if you practice a slightly modified version of a task you want to master, you actually learn more and faster than if you just keep practicing the exact same thing multiple times in a row”

Repetitive practice is a proven way of building recall. Many trainers use flashcards or quizzes to build recall. How could you change these things up? Well, you may occasionally force fast quizzes. Under a minute – focusing just on speed.

Our Cogneti’s Safe Food Handler certificate program helps you train this way. It’s a simple mobile app. Designed with basic game mechanics. It has a series of unique quizzes for every food safety topic. And it’s ANSI accredited, which is super-duper cool.
