Q: I wish to improve my memory. I am 37 yrs old & wish to pursue education further.
A:1. Try to learn items by using imagery eg.for remembering the name MALA, think of a necklace. 2. Use chunking, a large number can be learnt by breaking it up, eg., a 9 digit no. can be learnt by breaking it into threes. 3. Organise and try to use labels. Put the material into abbreviated forms eg., VIBGYOR is a common way of learning the names of colours of the rainbow. 4. Revise or repeat the item often during the early period when the maximum forgetting happens. 5. Be positive, tell yourself that you will remember the item as you find the item quite interesting.
