MEMORIZATION TIPS

MEMORIZATION MANTRAS

memory

  1. Make words or sentences: For making a word, take the first letter of each word and make it into a word. For example:

WORD

WHAT IT STAND FOR WHAT ITS HELPS YOU TO REMEMBER
VIBGYOR VIOLET, INDIGO,BLUE, GREEN, YELLOW, ORANGE, RED  The colours of rainbow
HOMES HURON, ONTARIO, MICHIGAN, ERIE, SUPERIOR

The five Great Lakes

  1. For making a sentence: The sentences can also be made in same manner as the word.
  • Example: King Henry Died, Mother Don’t Cry much – this stands for Kilometer, Hectometer, Decameter, Meter, Decimeter, Centimeter, Millimeter.
  • Example: To memorize the zero group elements of Periodic Table we can make the statements as Hena Ne Arjun aur Krishna ko Xenon aur Redon deya (hindi statement)-  Helium (He), Neon (Ne), Argon (Ar), Krypton (Kr), Xenon (Xe) and Radon (Rn). You can also make statements with your own language.
  1. Rhyme it: Making a rhyme helps you remember facts, too.
  • For example, Henry VIII had six wives. The following rhyme helps you remember what happened to each wife, in order: Divorced, beheaded, died; Divorced, beheaded, survived.
  1. Sing it: How did you memorize the alphabet? You learned the ABC song! Use this memory idea with other new information, too. Set the information to music. The information will be even easier to remember if the song rhymes.
  1. Link it: Link a word or image to the material you want to recall. The image helps you remember the idea.
  • For Example: people often confuse desert and dessert. How can you remember that dessert is the food we eat at the end of the meal? Link it to strawberry shortcake have two s’s.

  1. Group it: Grouping items together also helps you remember them. Groups of three to four work best. Maybe that’s why we put a comma after every set of three numbers. Try it now. Group these numbers to help you remember them: NOT
  • Example: GROUPED: 718046381 GROUPED: 718,046,381
  1. Teach it: Once you get the idea, explain it to yourself or to someone else in your own words. You can even teach it to an imaginary audience. This forces you to organize the material in a way that makes sense to you. It also helps you anticipate questions that will be on the test. As a bonus, you’ll be able to correct any misunderstandings you have.
  1. Write it: After you have understood a text, in order to memorize the key points, write them in your own words. This helps in remembering the content and the key points.
  1. Say it: Just repeating the information aloud will help you memorize it. Do not mug up large amounts of information just before an examination. An effective way is to read regularly and gradually develop interlinks between the ideas.
  1. Review it: To fix the information in your mind, you have to review it. Go over the information each day for 5-10 minutes. This will help the information stay in your memory
