Default Learning the material

Does anyone ever have issues where you learn something and then forget it? Is it just a matter of improving the memory?

Well it usually takes a revision after I learn something to totally grasp it. It is quite normal considering there are 50+ topics.

What I learned is, the more time I give, the better I remember. So, a month before exam and ramming everything is hard. 2-3 months before exam, then I can remember and understand a lot of the topics.
