Memorizing is clearly about short term memory. My problem, which is why I'm exploring this product, is a learning disability affecting short term memory.
Because of my 'sequencing' problem, images are not always easy to keep in sequence. I have no doubt that if you have no problem with sequencing, this product will increase your short term memory by 50% easily. I'm not quite so lucky, I have to put a lot more work into it.
The memory maps are ok, again the other reviewer said you have to memorize the maps first. It gives you an idea of the types of journeys you could use though.
I only had one gripe with the cards although very minor, for using the dominic system the cards went up in 1,2,3 instead of 01,02,03. Like i said it was very minor, i think it would of been good to have 2 decks and have the backs of the number cards blank so you could write your own Peoples names on the back, just an idea. I made my own out of flash cards anyway which was cheap enough.
I don't know why it is that the memory maps he provides are easier for me to remember than real locations I'm familiar with; perhaps it is because they have very specific locations which are free from the clutter and distractions of real locations.
I've also tried the peg word systems described by Lorayne and Buzan. While these are useful I find the journey method much easier, faster, and more fun to use. You should try this if you haven't yet, you'll be amazed by the power of your own memory!
I find this information valuable for study and memorization of information I need for my work. This kit is a good place to begin memory management.
