Memory Techniques

Organize it
  1. Be Selective. When reading, look for chapter previews, summaries, and review questions. Pay attention to anything printed in bold type, notice visual elements.
  2. Make it meaningful.
  3. Create associations.
Use your Body
  1. Learn it once, actively.
  2. Relax
  3. Create pictures
  4. Recite and Repeat
  5. Write it down
Use your Brain
  1. Engage your emotions. One powerful way to enhance your memory is to make friends with your amygdala. This is an area of your brain that lights up with extra neural activity each time you feel a strong emotion. When you link new material to something that you feel strongly about, you activate this part of your brain. In turn, you're more likely to remember that material.
  2. Overlearn.
  3. Escape the short-term memory trap.
  4. Use your times of peak energy.
  5. Distribute learning.
  6. Be aware of attitudes.
  7. Give your "secret brain" a chance.
  8. Combine techniques
Recall it
  1. Remember something else. When your are stuck and can't remember something that you're sure you know, remember something else that is related to it.
  2. Notice when you do remember.
  3. Use it before you lose it. To remember something access it a lot. Read it, write it, speak it, listen to it, apply it.
  4. Adopt the attitude that you never forget.
