STUDENTS: Study more efficiently with your classmates. TEACHERS: Improve your students' study habits & track their performance. KNOWLEDGE JUNKIES: Expand your brain. ALL: Improve your total cultural literacy-- from the Khmer Rouge to the Kardashians -- with the new, free Knowledge Rehab subject!

Brainscape is a web and mobile education platform that helps you learn *anything* as efficiently as possible, based on solid cognitive science.

Our method is all about personalizing the TIMING of your study patterns. Whether you’re learning a language, preparing for a test, or just acquiring some fun trivia, Brainscape spaces the repetition of each bite-sized concept based on exactly the right interval for YOUR brain. All you have to do is rate how well you know each concept, on a scale of 1-5, and Brainscape determines the right time to quiz you again. It's strangely addicting and is scientifically proven to slash your required study time.

So where does all this great study content come from? There are two simple ways to get it:

-CREATE YOUR OWN FLASHCARDS. You can create multimedia flashcards very easily both on Brainscape’s website AND within the app itself. You can also share your decks with your classmates and collaboratively develop content together.

-STUDY BRAINSCAPE’S EXPERT CONTENT. We've put together a little treasure trove of useful knowledge that you can study right from the get-go for free. And if you'd like even more of our expert material, our marketplace offers premium study packages for Languages, Standardized Tests, and even things like Music Theory and Sports Trivia. We’re adding new subjects every week.

In the future, Brainscape’s team plans to make this system infinitely more efficient, convenient, fun, and social, so please be sure to give us feedback to help us improve the product. It's users like YOU who have helped us reach a community of millions of learners already. Help us create a Brainscape community that spans the whole world of learners!

Amazing app!

This app has been beyond helpful!! I am studying for my Property and Casualty licensing exam. When I first received all of my study materials, I was completely overwhelmed. I didn't even know where to start. I was repeatedly failing all of my practice exams and just couldn't retain the information. Then, a friend told me about Brainscape. After only studying for an hour or so, I notice an INSANE difference. I was recalling all sorts of information. Within no time, I was answering almost every question on my practice exams correctly. I couldn't believe the improvement. Brainscape makes it fun to learn...and convenient too! With two small children, I never know when I'll have a spare moment to study. Luckily, with Brainscape, I can access my study materials at any time, in any place. I am absolutely in love with this app. Thank you guys for developing such a great product!!!

Great app, I need more though

I really like the way this flash card app chooses which flash cards to show in what order, and how you can rate how well you knew each card. The only problem is that I'm using these for math, and there is no easy way to input Greek symbols and other math symbols that I need. I would love to be able to hand write my cards on my iPad with a stylus - that would be ideal. The best I can do is hand write cards or LaTex them, then screenshot this to the cards. But even then, the pictures are SO SMALL it's too hard to read on the flashcards. The pictures are the same size on my iPad as my phone, which is ridiculous. So right now, it's just impossible for me to use this app for everything I need it for.

Top Notch

This app and others developed through brainscape have truly helped me to learn French faster. It has become an integral part of my learning experience. I have tried several learning programs, duolingo, rosetta stone, fluenz, alongside dictionaries, and HelloTalk. I keep coming back to brainscape to supplement my learning because the generated repetition patterns work to master the subject. One thing that I like is the ability to access features from a pc through their website as well as from my iPhone, to manage and create decks, and to competitively track progress.
