I need to memorize my AFROTC's whole detachment Warrior Knowledge book (a little book about 30 pages) along with the Arnold Air Society Manual chapters 1 and 2 (5 pages 8.5x11), the Air Force Song and High Flight, and the Cadet Wing Staff names and titles and I have a day and a half to do it.

What is a good way to memorize a lot of information in a relatively short time and retain that knowledge?

Osmosis. Place the book(s) under your pillow as you sleep your way to success.

write out a summary of each chapter (or page or paragraph - with your time constraints, I'm going to say chapter) as you read it.

review these notes. continually write the same facts/figures/stats over and over again.

if you need to write them on a test, it helps if you've written them before.

oh yeah, also get away from arfcom.

intervals. More smaller chunks. Personalize them, associate them, create questions in your mind about them and how they apply to you and your life.

Write it out until you can just write without copying.

Tattoo it on your forearms.


Hey, it's no more stupid than a tribal arm band.

Drink a bunch of stimulating beverages until 0300, switch then to water, stay up all night drilling yourself, then about 0600, lay down just for a moment to take a little rest.

repetition. read it over, and over, and over, and over.

Read it into a voice recorder. Then, read it while listening to yourself read it...

I memorized a lot of worthless crap in college (Biochemistry was the worst) and reading out loud or reading while listening to myself read it helped me memorize stuff verbatim...

Some of that shit, I can still recall and I graduated College 16-years ago.

It worked for me...

ETA: Hanging out on ARFCOM will NOT help!

Cheat sheets work wonders for those who procrastinate

Don't get caught!

+1

Use both audio and visual stimuli (reading the text and listening to it).

Can't get any more efficient than that.

And don't forget that 'sleep' is when we transfer data within memory.
