What is the difference between V2.0 and the original course?

In V2.0  Course , I revised and re-edited the lessons of the initial course, and I changed the structure of the course so that students get as quickly as possible into the core of the course, which is dedicated to memory techniques (Section 2. Basic Memory Systems and Section 3. Advanced Memory Systems) . Theoretical sections, like those about memory functioning (The Memory Factory) and The Healthy Memory Lifestyle were moved to the end of the course.


What students say about the course:

Ken Haile: "I've studied various memory techniques before and consequently was somewhat familiar with the subject. True, some of the techniques taught can be found in other sources. But, I do not know of any other source that offers such a comprehensive overview as this course does. It is all in one convenient place. Multiple techniques are taught to accomplish the same task. You can choose the one that bests suites your needs and preferences or use a combination to address various memory tasks. The description of various memory competitions was quite interesting. I can approach any memory task with greater confidence using what I've learned. If you want to improve your memory, this is a great course!"

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone looking to develop new learning and memory improvement skills. This course is suitable for complete beginners,too.
  • People who think they have a bad memory and want to do something about it.

Acronyms can help you to memorize different things.

 The Acronym mnemonic technique is very simple to learn and to apply and can be used both in study and in different daily activities.   

 This technique has two variants: the Acronym Method and the Sentence Method, which will be presented in detail in the following lessons.

2.1. Acronyms
03:02

Learn how to form an acronym when you have to memorize facts or concepts and how to use this simple memory technique.

2.1.1. The Acronym Method
05:13

The Sentence Method is very similar to the Acronym Method.   

 Here is how it works: You take the first letter (or an important letter) of the word you're trying to memorize and form a sentence out of it.    

 This method is better for longer lists as compared to the Acronym Method.

A Sentence allows you to create much more elaborate mnemonic images  than a single word ,therefore this a more efficient method   

2.1.2. The Sentence Method
05:18

The Link Method is one of the easiest mnemonic techniques available.

It works by coding information to be remembered into images and then linking these images together.

You use it by making simple associations between items in a list, linking them with a vivid image containing the items.

There are two variants of The Link System  : "The Chain Link”  and "The Story Method".

In the following lessons I will present in detail these variants, along with practical examples.

2.1.The Link system
04:48

"The Chain Link”  or "The Word Train method", works by linking a series of pairs of items (elements in the list that are next to each other) ,like a chain.   

In this lesson, you will learn how to use this simple memory technique.

2.2.1. The Chain Link Method
03:21

This method uses the linking of the items together with a memorable story featuring them.The flow of the story and the strength of the images will give you the cues for retrieval.   

Besides lists,you can use the Story technique for remembering the  names of people at a party or at a business meeting, for example, or  topics you want to include in a presentation.   

The method can also be very useful for your studies, helping you memorize with ease various unrelated things .   

2.2.2. The Story Method
03:32

The loci method is the oldest technique of memory, being invented by the Greek poet Simonidis in the fifth century BC.

This method uses familiar locations to help you memorize important information.

This technique  is based on the fact that it is easier to remember new information  that is linked to information you already have.

Preview 06:23

The Roman Room technique works by pegging images coding for information to known things, in this case to objects in a room.

2.3.1. The Roman Room Technique
03:21

If we wish to remember much material we must equip ourselves with a large number of places.

The Journey Technique is based on a mental journey through a place you know well, like a building or town. Along that journey there are specific locations that you always visit in the same order.

 It will help you to remember the correct order and can easily be used over and over again for different purposes.

2.3.2. The Journey Method
05:02

A mind map is a hierarchical diagram representing ideas, concepts and words that are arranged around a central image or key idea

Originated in the late 1960s by Tony Buzan, Mind Maps are now used by millions of people around the world – from the very young to the very old – whenever they wish to use their minds more effectively.

 It is used to structure, classify, visualize and at times generate ideas for the purpose of organizing information, solving problems and making better decisions.

A mind map essentially pieces together a subject into effective segments or chunks to help aid memory and recall.It is a creative and effective tool to put information into your brain and to take information out of your brain, that literally ‘maps out’ your thoughts.

2.4. Mind Maps
09:12

The Sound Alike method or the Word Substitution method is a technique that will help you to remember difficult words in the English language or in a foreign language, words that you aren't familiar with.

Preview 04:21

Rhymes and jingles are so easily recalled that they stick with us, and can be important techniques to help us remember things.

How The Peg System works?

A Peg System can be thought of much like a wardrobe which contains a number of hooks for hanging clothes on. The hangers themselves never change, but the clothes which are hung on the hooks can be infinitely varied.

In this lesson you will learn how this system works, then ,in the next lessons, I will present you the main Peg systems.

2.7.1. The Peg System - Presenting the Method
06:07

Alphabet systems are typically used as a type of Mnemonic Peg System to memorize lists of up to 26 items in order.

2.7.2. The Alphabet Peg Method
05:19

The Animal Peg system is a good method for remembering medium length lists (up to 26 items) in a specific order, in such a way that you can tell if items are missing.

2.7.3. The Animal Peg Technique
03:46

This method is especially suitable for kinaesthetic learners.

 The principle of the body parts system is that you "attach" one item from your list to be memorized to each body-peg in turn.

When you need to recall your list of items, your body acts as a memory-trigger and help you to remember the items.

2.7.4. The Body-Parts Method
04:05

In this lesson, we will move on to another type of peg method, whose code is based on digits.

Just as the alphabet method is based on the fact that you will not forget the order of the 26 letters, the number-rhyme method is based on an equally simple system of pegs: the numbers from 0 to 9.

 This technique is especially suitable for predominantly auditory persons.

2.7.5. The Number Rhyme Method
03:25

The Number-Shape system is a very simple and effective way of remembering a long number or a list in a specific order, similar with the Number Rhyme System.

It’s  a type of peg system based on peg-numbers, too.

Each number from 0 to 9 is associated with a mnemonic image based on the shape of the digit.

 The Number-Shape technique is  especially suitable for predominantly visual persons.

2.7.6. The Number Shape Method
03:30

How does it work?

The Number Symbol Method is a very simple and effective way of remembering a long number or a list in a specific order, similar with the Number Shape System , also especially suitable for predominantly visual persons.

 It’s a type of peg system based on peg-numbers.

Each number from 0 to 9 is associated with a mnemonic image based on a symbolic image of the digit.

2.7.7. The Number Symbol Method
02:48

The Sing-a-Long Method is another type of peg method , very easy to learn and also fun to use.

It is especially suitable for predominantly auditory persons.

2.7.8. The Sing-a-long Method
03:31

The Major System ,also called the Consonant Peg Method, or the phonetic mnemonic system,is a very efficient technique used to memorize numbers ,shuffled playing cards,dates,historical facts and other long,abstract sequences of items.

The Major system operates on a number of levels, depending on the amount of time you are prepared to devote to learning the system.

In a previous lesson you could learn how to use The basic level of the Major system ,which involves coding single digit numbers into small words.

You  could see the 10 associations code of this level.

 Based on this simple code, we can develop a code of 100 images, thus moving to level 2 of the Major system.

3.1.1. The Major System Level 2- Presenting the method
07:43

In this lesson, you will learn how to use the major system for memorizing long numbers and we will memorize together the first 40 digits of the number PI with this method:

Memory formation is a sequential operation where information processing moves from the present (sensory memory) into short-term memory and eventually moves into long-term memory.    What we usually think of as “memory” in day-to-day usage is actually long-term memory, but there are also important short-term and sensory memory processes, which must be worked through before a long-term memory can be established.    

The different types of memory each have their own particular mode of operation, but they all cooperate in the process of memorization, and can be seen as three necessary steps in forming a lasting memory.
