Brown and Miller list some more memorizing techniques.

Memorizing through association

It easier to remember something if we link it to something we already know. Try to relate new information to personal examples as much as possible.

 

 

 

 

 

Memorizing through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic systems

Try to incorporate as many of the senses as possible when learning, focusing especially, but not exclusively on your  preferred style. Each sense is processed in a different part of the brain, and by using all the different senses and associations, you are using more of your brain, which will help in the retention of material.

Memorizing through repetition

This is probably the one aspect of studying that most people know and dread.  However, even though most of us know that we should have lots of repetition, we don't know how important it actually is. Repetition, in the context of memorization, means different interactions with the new material.  In other words, it is more than a simple rereading of notes.  It could include making flashcards, talking as you draw your mind maps, and writing summaries. >>>

 

 

 

Memorizing through grouping

One of the key aspects of memory performance is to learn the material from the general to the specific.  In order to achieve this, graphic organizers are often a must. Your brain needs some kind of mental organization in order for you to retrieve the stored information.

Memorizing through mnemonic techniques

Mnemonics are very powerful memorization devices that work especially well for memorizing lists and sequences of items.

The key to mnemonics is to build a strong association between the mnemonic and for what they stand. 

Mnemonics take a little bit of practice, but become easier the more you use them.
