Memory

Memory is one thing which everyone cares about and would do just anything to have it..i have seen many people complaining abt it that they just dont remember anything and everything...but how many of those really work for it[like any sports or art] sincerely??...only a hand full!!...
When i was in 2nd year mbbs my main problem was to remember things as it is from the text[to score marks!!] and many times used to get frustrated for not able to do so...
One day by chance i got hold of this wonder book written by H.Lorayne.In this book he explains many good practical techniques[like link system,peg,mnemonics and many more] with demonstrations...i have tried using these techniques and have found them to be quite useful!!...

check these out[Visualization technique has been applied here]

1)Indications of induction of labour-


2) 10 features of severe Pre-eclampsia


3) imagine a leg in an AC...just imagine and keep this picture in your mind...Legionnaire organism[causes pneumonia] common source of infection is contaminated AC...

p.s-if am using these techniques it doesnt mean i have a good memory..it just makes studying more interesting and interactive
sorry for the poor quality of the snaps:)

I remember that we had a workshop in our office about how to remember birth dates. And the person asked us to associate image with each number. For each number associate a image and then imagine a person doing something with that image. The picture would then always remain and you would remember. Very much like the third part of your post, imagining a leg inside the AC.

the leg in an ac...is really a smart one.

its fun to study this way....and then discussing them with your friends and sharing techniques with each other...

am glad someone has put it in a book
