A handy dandy set of ten strategies to memorize anything. These do work—I’ve used many of them.
- You may need specific info for some classes—probably basic terminology, vocabulary in languages, formulae, rules.
- Even if you don’t, if you are given an essay question for an exam ahead of time, you can write the essay (or an outline) and commit it to memory.
- Your elevator speech—the one you have prepared to sell yourself for a job opportunity that pops up unexpectedly—should be on the tip of your tongue. If you have it committed to memory, you avoid looking like a moose in the headlights when that opportunity arrives.
