Welcome to How to build a Powerful Memory: Learn information faster and keep it longer.
This is my free course which introduces you to some of the foundational concepts of building a better memory.
This course is geared towards people who want to improve their memory, be that for school, university or college. If you need to study and learn a lot of information, then it pays to know a few good strategies on how to do that.
In this course I share the basic concepts around using memory palaces and mental routes to store lists of information. Practically all information comes in lists. Think about theory, parts of things, chronological dates - they are all sequential in some way or other.
This course will help you learn that sort of information. So far, for the sake of building these courses to demonstrate how this works, I have arbitrarily learnt Pi to 500 decimal places, and the entire periodic table using these methods. In fact, using these strategies I could recall 500 decimals of pi or the periodic table backwards (and of course forwards which is a no brainer).
In this course I explain these fundamentals of memory and present you with 3 exercises to get you started. The exercises are simple and easy to do, and should not take much time out of your day. But you will certainly get the idea on how to use these techniques if you do the exercises.
Using my knowledge of psychology, I have given you a good rationale on why these memory strategies work. Psychologically they are grounded in brain research and science. I have put my faith in them, so I hope you will too, and use them to your advantage.
Since I learnt these methods, I have discovered that when I forget to use them, that is when I start to forget. They certainly help me in my day to day life, and I am sure they will help you too.
