- Your brain is like a hard drive — the space is limited. Remember Sherlock Holmes? He couldn’t name all the planets of the Solar system — this was not because he missed school or something like that, but because he was too smart to have such irrelevant information in his memory. He deliberately erased facts he would never need. This is what your brain does: it protects you from overloading with information. That’s why all new data is stored in the short-term memory, not the long-term one. So, if you don’t repeat it or use it, you forget it very quickly.
A German psychologist, Hermann Ebbinghaus researched the memory and its mechanisms. He described the Forgetting Curve which shows that just one hour after learning something new we forget more than half of the learned information. One day later we remember only about 30% percent. Well, you see where this is going.
- There is a memorization technique called «Spaced repetition». To keep some information in your head for a longer time, you need to try to put it into your long-term memory. Forced memorization is not very effective in this case because your brain can’t make sense of the information quickly and form strong associations. Here it all depends on the reason why you are learning something.
- To memorize something quickly, repeat the information right after learning it.
The second repetition should be after 15-20 minutes.
You don’t need to return to the information between repetitions — just rest and do something different. Let your brain relax.
Repeat the learned material the third time after 6-8 hours.
And you should have the final repetition 24 hours after the first contact with the information.

My usual study habits:
•Listen to Gamma, Beta, or Alpha wave Binaural beats while studying for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes have passed, take 20-30 minutes to rest, play a video game (ex: kancolle kai on PS Vita), read some manga/webcomics, etc.
•Study with one of those Daylight anti-depression Lamps or around something with a vibrant yellow (the color yellow affects the performance of your attention).
•Download, Write down [verbatim], and Color-code notes the second the professor makes them available and marvel at your literary artistic note-taking $KiŁŁZ🕶

A twelfth way to learn and memorize something is by using the method used by Physics Nobel Prize winner Richard Fyenman: 1) Approach the subject as if you already know it, 2) Explain it to yourself as if you are teaching it to somebody else and make it simple, speak out loud, 3) Simplify the subject as if you are teaching it to somebody who doesn't have a clue. Feynman used to say, "If you have simplified the subject so that you can teach it to your grandmother, then you will have learnt the subject and it will stay in your memory for a long time".
Your brain forces bad memories into your long term memory because it lets you know what is bad for and not repeat what caused that bad memory to happen. Bad memory is just to let you know what to protect yourself from. I hope this helps
Yep.. I have few. Everyone have diffent comfort zone in catch up facts. Somebody remember more of those they write. Somebody remember more of those read loudly or whisper themselves. Somebody learn by hearing while others reading may be they make others read so that they could learn from that..... Somebody learn through visualisation.... so find your comfort zone so that you can learn easily.....
I don't agree about the "not using books" part. If the information is in a book, it has been approved and published, and using books look great in a bibliography. Also, reading a physical book is healthier than reading information on a screen and uses a slightly different type of intelligence, so don't stop using books.
Act of ramdomness - a memory tip.
Whenever you learning something and in this process suddenly if you see some other thing RANDOMLY then you will remember it for long time. So place cards or piece of paper written with information you need to learn in different books RANDOMLY so whenever you are using any particular book you will find a RANDOM information in it and you will remember it.
We can memorise things by connecting to a funny story 🙂
We can also memorise list of things by making meaningful words out of first letters of point.
We can understand things better with cross questioning....

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
