Seven Steps to Memory Improvement

  1. Organize the material.
  2. Intend to remember.
  3. Test yourself repeatedly.
  4. Use a variety of techniques:
    1. Use several senses: read silently, read aloud, and write out the material.
    2. Use keywords as reminders.
    3. Use catchwords and catchphrases.
  5. Use several sessions to remember; don’t rely on just one sitting. (In other words—DON’T CRAM!)
  6. Over-learn the material.
  7. Study just before going to bed, and then review in the morning.
