What is Wranx?

Wranx is an online training tool that can be accessed on any device and uses the simple scientific idea of Spaced Repetition to provide learning that improves knowledge retention, even with as little as 2-3 minutes of training a day.

Wranx utilises Spaced Repetition in the form of ‘Daily drills’ – a series of around 10 questions a day. What makes Wranx different is that you will be asked a question and then shown the answer. You then have to assess how well you knew that answer, using one of six different ratings, from ‘I knew it’ to ‘I didn’t know it’. Wranx then schedules the question to appear again at a later date… further in the future if you were confident with that question, and sooner if you are not as strong on that topic. This method is scientifically proven to accelerate the learning process!
