This won't help you much for memorizing math or
science equations but for most else it works great -
In college I recorded my notes on an audio-cassette
player and then listened to the recordings while doing
anything that didn't require my focused attention -
brushing my teeth, walking to class, etc. There's
plenty of dead time in most people's days.
After you hear it play 3-4 times you know - it's like
listening to a song and you anticipate what's said
I was a straight A student in college and that was
my biggest secret to success.
And it sounds like mind mapping is an essential skill
for you to possess. It's simple - just start doing
it. I mind map everything new that I learn now.
Here's one that might be of interest (there are free
maps for a variety of items that might be helpful to
BTW, pencil and paper work great - you don't need
a software app to make a mind map (and there are
free ones available)

It should be able to apply on real life concept. I know of memories like using the First letter of each words to memorise the key points. Just that the understanding on it is bad, it will be difficult to relate and worst to write an essay for it.. Oh my!! So, anyone have any ideas on improving memory for essay and not solely based on points form?
