The subject made no difference: in all cases, the summaries worked better. When students were given the same amount of time with each—twenty to thirty minutes—they learned more from the summaries than they did from the chapters. This was true whether the students were tested twenty minutes after they read the material or one year later. In either case, those who read the summaries recalled more than those who read the chapters.
