I remember when I was very young and my older, and much smarter, brother came home from Ohio State, he told everyone it is just extremely hard. He said he just couldn't hack it. So he quit college and joined the army. Well, I thought, if he can't make it in college how could I ever? So I resigned myself to never going to college. But about 15 years after graduating High School, my friends talked me into going to college. I'd tell them I'm just not smart enough. Well, they talked me into trying. So I bought Harry Lorayne's book. Smart move! Wow!
With this book I was able to have 6 pages of notes and memorize a key word for each line on the pages. So when I'd take my History exams it was always a piece of cake. I had names, dates, places, events all memorized, and it was EASY! My math classes were so much easier too. This book impacted in a positive way every class I took. With this book I was able to maintain a 4.0. Yes, that's right, a 4.0. Dumb little ole me that my brothers berated was actually the smartest one of the bunch. How? because I found out how to PROPERLY USE the brain God gave me by using Harry Lorayne's techniques!
Some of the students in college would give me the bird because they were jealous. I'd help some, who were not doing so well, with the techniques in this book and their grades would vastly improve just from spending a few minutes with them.Read more ›
My college had no maximum on the number of credits you could earn by challenging the course. After learning Harry Lorayne's methods I tested out of two and one half years of college in eight months and graduated early.
We home school our eight children and we use this book with every one of them, to great success. I'm also the director of a learning center where we use this book as well.
Read the book, do the exercises, and use the tools every day.
Lorayne begins the book like he does any of his others. He introduces the reader to the Link system of memory for memorizing lists of words, then the Peg system for memorizing numbers. He discusses the basic building blocks of his system, such as the substitution, exaggeration, and irrationality methods. After testing the reader with the new systems a bit, and rightly predicting that they will be amazed with the systems, Lorayne shows how to implement the two systems so one can memorize pretty much anything one needs to know. He explains in detail how to efficiently memorize both native and foreign vocabulary, dates in history, even math and chemisty formulas. His examples are so detailed, by the time you finish the book you'll have memorized the whole periodic table and the amendments to the Constitution!
If you've already studied Lorayne's memory system from another one of his books, it's best to skip this one; there's basically nothing new, and it's mostly geared towards students: it doesn't even have some of the systems of his other books, such as memorizing faces and names when meeting new people. The writing is very informal and speech-like, making students feel (as did I) comfortable with it all the way through. If, however, you've never studied mnemonics and are looking for a well-rounded system that you can apply to anything and everything you want to learn, this may be the only book you'll need.
A year or so later, I met Harry Lorayne during a show (he was a mental expert and I was a musician). I was absolutely astounded at what he did and decided that however he did it, I would do the same thing. I told Harry that, and he laughed and said, "Just buy any of my books--they all say the same thing."
I promptly bought ALL of his available books, found that he was correct, and returned all but one, "How to Develop a Super-power Memory." Yes, the method Harry teaches may seem to be a "kiddy way" or simplistic, but it REALLY works. My grades were "A"s thereafter. I remembered whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, regardless of the detail.
If Harry Lorayne's methods don't work for you, it is ONLY because you did not apply them. Period. Do not for a moment think that "miraculous" results cannot spring from "simple" methods.
I also recommend anything Dr. Kenneth Higbee has written.
Get Lorayne's and Higbee's books; do what they say; you WILL be successful.
