Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In School you are required to lean large amount of information on many topics. But, as if that task were not enough, you also must quickly and accurately recall selected information for exams.
Exams are artificial, high-pressure situations. Few similar experiences exist outside the school setting. The memory systems described in this book will:
  • Help you prepare for exams taken in school and elsewhere.
  • Enable you to quickly and accurately recall the information you need to do well.
  • Make studying easier and perhaps even more enjoyable for you.

    While a student, I used these memory systems with great success. As a study-skills counselor, I have taught these methods to thousands of students. I hope you will find them equally helpful—William G. Browning, Ph.D.

Format: Paperback
Why did I buy this book? I am a middle-aged professor, comfortably situated, and needing neither to impress anyone, nor to make more money, nor to "take exams." But for me, it is a joy at any age to improve my mind.
This book is excellently designed for self-study.
The first part gives you a wide variety of standard techniques, explaining clearly the kind of memory task where each applies, e.g., sequential versus non-sequential. The second part allows you to practice and develop your new skills on 11 different academic subjects, which run the full gamut of humanities and sciences, such as might be encountered in high school or college.
One very effective feature: throughout both parts of the book, the author follows brief tutorial sections on the techniques--seldom longer than a page--with an exercise where you can solidify your grasp and get immediate feedback. I think when you see how well you are doing, you'll be strongly encouraged to continue. This is also an advantage over the well-known Memory Book by Lorayne and Lucas, which I once attempted to study; in that book, the chapters were fairly long, and at the end the authors might suggest you make up an exercise on your own to test the new technique. However, passing a test you made up yourself seems a little chintzy! Or maybe, my creativity was not up to the task. In any case, I gave up on that book after about 2 chapters, notwithstanding all the amusing anecdotes that fill it.
In the second half, I wanted to strengthen my grasp, so I did all the subjects outside my own strong area (physics, math). These are areas I normally have neither much interest nor aptitude, but the techniques came through with flying colors. Out of the 43 exercises I did, with 319 separate items of information, I missed only 10.

This book was great for my long history of memory problems.
It's a relief to find a book that has more than a couple
chapters of useful information. Every chapter "bangs" you
with advice that is right on target. Another book that is
this way for both memory and high grades is one called
SURVEY OF 300 A+ STUDENTS (by Kenneth Green). He graduated
from school with 12 A+'s on his academic transcript and then
got into Harvard. Next, he graduated valedictorian of his class
at Harvard University.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good, consice book on how to maximize your studies. It's strength is that the author sets out what has worked in his experience, not only as a student, but as a counselor as well. There are many ideas, and it is well to take the basics that he lays forward, and then to modify them to one's purposes.

The only weakness is that it is concise and at times it would be well to have a more thorough presentation of the some of the methods. Still however, much of this comes through practicing the techniques more so than having them bottle fed to you.

Highly recommended.
