Maybe, I don't know. But I can memorise up to a 25 digit number per go.
Is that with any special memory techniques or just by looking at it?

Do you feel that having a good memory has helped you a lot for exams, or is understanding the content more important than blindly memorising the stuff in the textbook?

Flashcards and going through them regularly.

I'll go home after a lecture, write it up then make flashcards. Come the weekend I'll go through all the flashcards in the stack I've got for that subject.

I think this works because half of my exams are made up of multiple choice questions though :P

What would you guys say are the best revision techniques to help retain and remember information. My favourite types are the psychological/memory ones that help you remember or make links in your head so you can remember better without too much effort on your behalf:

Here are some of mine:

Listening to a song that I like during revision and remembering topics by thinking about that song

Memory techniques, like loci or memory palaces and linking stuff in my head by making up weird stories or even songs

Sticking stuff in random places so I see them during day to day activities

What are yours?

I masturbate and form key words from the course with my ejaculate onto a dark surface; usually my brother Gujarat's head. A sort of perverted Art Attack piece.

Also, I find paying a Thai hooker to dress up as notable personalities from my history book (e.g. Thatcher) and rapping their successes and failures really helps me get off. Not very helpful for memorising stuff but ****ing young Putanya dressed as Reagan whilst she raps about the deregulation of the US economy to the tune of "Slim Shady" is both factual and extremely, extremely sexually satisfying.
