Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys, so when I'm revising I discovered that I do understand most of the content, however I find it very difficult to remember key information. If you could please give some tips on how to improve my memory and remember more information that would be great.



    1. Get a small piece of paper.
    2. Write a short question on one side.
    3. Write a short answer (piece of important information) on the other.

    Repetition - go over stuff repeatedly. This needs determination
    Saying it aloud really helps me even if i look like an idiot!
    Colours - highlight the most important things
    I don't know what they're called but use words to remember things, like e.g. "RED"
    R ussia
    E thiopia
    D enmark
    These are soooo good. I rely on them all the time
    Draw pictures beside each fact.
    Good luck
