door, water, ball.

Those words make no sense. Yet early in this book, the author Ramon Campayo shows you how to remember these 20 unassociated words. I read this chapter in a coffee shop in San Francisco, four weeks ago and I can still remember these words.

I bought this book because my company are putting me through a mini MBA if you will. Now its been 17 years since I really had to study and memorise facts. I tried differing tactics and whilst I am passing the tests, its all short term and I wanted to find a way to help me really remember this stuff as its useful in my work.

I have a test on Thursday night. I am using Mr Campayo' study techniques. Will it work? I dont know, I will tell you once I have sat the test ;-)

I give this book a four because its easy to read and I like the methodology behind it. You genuinely do remember your stuff. There is a lot more in this book than I need. A lot of good information on test preparation in terms of what to do on the day and what not to do.

I would have given this a five star rating had it included some pages in colour, especially those pages with mental map examples.

I'm a longtime student of various mental arts. While there isn't a lot of new stuff here, unless you're an ace with Tony Buzan's methods or something then you'll probably learn something. In fact, it would be a very reasonable choice as part of a small library of memory books. The note taking and review tips are excellent precisely because they are simple and minimal.
