Hey guys and gals! We FIND and PROMOTE people's work, we never take credit for things we haven't written, we just love sharing the things that are interesting, but if you don't want your work or pictures shown, please let me know and I'll take it off, we're not trying to harm any one here or infringe on anyone's copyrights, just late night entertainment for my friends and I after a long days of work.

We're not making money off the site, nor are we publishing anything to other places through feedburner claiming that it's our work, just a hobby of finding cool things around the internet, that's all. Sometimes we copy and paste too quickly and a link giving you credit doesn't appear, if that's the case and you DO want your work promoted, we will add in the backlink, we would love to give credit where credit is due!

Please contact me or drop a comment on any posts you guys don't want up and I'll take it off within 24 hours, thanks!

Hints for Remembering Better

  1. Understand thoroughly what is to be remembered and/or memorized
  2. Spot what is to be memorized verbatim. It is a good plan to use a special marking symbol in text and notebook to indicate parts and passages, rules, data, and all other information that is to be memorized instead of just understood and remembered
  3. If verbatim memory is required, go over the material or try to repeat at odd times.
  4. Think about what you are trying to learn. Find an interest in the material if you wish to memorize it with ease.
  5. Study first the items that you want to remember longest.
  6. Learn complete units at one time, as that is the way it will have to be recalled.
  7. Overlearn to make certain.
  8. Analyze material and strive to intensify the impressions the material makes.
  9. Use concrete imagery whenever possible. Close your eyes and get a picture of the explanation and summary answer. Try to see it on the page. See the key words underlined.
  10. Make your own applications, examples, and illustrations.
  11. Reduce the material to be remembered to your own self-made system or series of numbered steps.
  12. Represent the idea graphically by use of pictorial or diagrammatic forms.
  13. Make a list of key words most useful in explaining the idea or content of the lesson.
  14. Form a variety of associations among the points you wish to remember. The richer the associations, the better the memory.
  15. Try making the idea clear to a friend without referring to your book or notes.
  16. Actually write out examination questions on the material you think you might get at the end of the term. Then write the answers to your own questions. Since you now have the chance, consult the text or your notes to improve your answers.
  17. Follow suggestions for reviewing. This is an important part of remembering.
