    Use flashcards for each essay, write the title of the essay on one side and key points on the other. Either get people to test you or test yourself on them Good luck

    Bullet point your paragraphs and remember those and keep rereading the essays till you can evaluate and recall them accuratley

    An old teacher of mine recommended we use little cards and write important bullet points on them. It's much easier to remember bullet points than whole paragraphs!
    If you're a visual learner, then use mind-maps, I found they really helped me to revise.

    Hello!

    We had this guy come in and give us a talk on how to memorize essays and he said making it into a story worked for the guy who won the best memory thing... yeah, it was a weird assembly. He was like pretend you're walking round your room or house or school or whatever and then relate everything to things along the way - like you start in your room and say the Law Against Child Abuse (whatever, I don't know law stuff!) was started and then look at your toys from when you were a child then the Law for Animal Protection and look at your hamster cage. I hope you get what I mean and this might work!

    Hey, I really think the most important part of the learning/memorisation process is RECAPPING. It's no good spending hours and hours learning the essays/key points by heart if you don't revisit them for a week/two weeks. You should learn one essay until you're able to comfortably recall all the key facts/details you need to know about it, then try another one. Then recap the first one and the second one. Then learn about a third, and then recap them all again, and so on (you get the idea).

    It means that you'll find it really easy to remember each essay because you keep them fresh in your mind all the time. Don't go for more than a few days without refreshing your memory... because if you forget it then you're just going have to spend even more time re-learning it, which just isn't a fun process at all, especially when you're stressed!
