Memorization Techniques that will work for you…

Introduction l.jpg

  • Unless you get sick or die, your brain never loses anything that goes into memory.

  • Forgetting is caused by not being able to retrieve it or not storing it properly.

  • Otherwise, it is always there.

Short term long term memory l.jpg
Short-term & Long term Memory

  • Short-term memory is like a loading dock at HEB or Wal-Mart. The truck pulls in with new learning for you.

  • You are like the fork-lift that takes the new thing off the truck and puts it on the dock for a short time.

  • To keep it in long-term memory, you need to pick it up and put it in the warehouse where it is stored in an organized way until it is needed.

  • You need to remember where you put it so you can get it when you need it.

  • Visualizing: use your “mind’s eye” to see what you need to remember.

  • Concentrating: bring your mind into “focus” on it!

  • Relating: associate it with something you already know.

  • Repeating: keep saying it over and over to yourself.

  • Reviewing: keep going through it so that it sticks in your brain.

More memory tricks l.jpg
More memory tricks:

  • Create associations: make connections or links with things you already know.

  • Learn it actively: fight boredom while learning by acting out what you are learning.

  • Relax: the “smoother” you feel, the more information you will absorb.

  • Create pictures: draw diagrams or cartoons- be inventive

Make your memory work for you l.jpg
Make your memory work for you…

  • Recite and repeat: say it again and again out loud to send it through the ears to the brain.

  • Write it down: a physical act with a different way to the mind.

  • Short Term Memory Trap: the “loading dock” of the mind, review and repeat to move to “Long Term Storage” so you can use it.

  • Distribute Learning – break it into small pieces, don’t try to learn it all at once in one big chunk.

If you don t use it you ll lose it l.jpg
If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it!

  • Watch your attitude – if you think what you’re learning is boring, you won’t remember it.

  • Use combinations: get both sides of your brain involved – sing the word while you read it.

  • Remember Something Else: if you can’t remember one thing, then think of something close.

  • Create a story: make up a strange one to memorize what you need.

Cramming at the last minute…

  • Cramming is never a good way to remember, but sometimes you have no choice. Make it work by-

  • Depressurize – take it easy.

  • Know the type of test you’ll be taking.

  • Read it quick: H2FLIB – headings, highlight, first sentence, last sentence,

    indents and boxes.

  • Use your syllabus or study guide.

Don’t forget – remember!

  • Just like anything else - the more you train and exercise your mind and memory, the better it will work for you and serve you.

  • There is no substitute for effort and work.
