Step 1: Prepare your mind by believing you can memorize
Find a quiet place to think with no distractions and prepare your mind by convincing yourself that you can effectively learn and remember the information.

Start memorizing well before any deadline or test you might have. Don't try to tackle too much information too fast.

Step 2: Read the information many times over many days
Read the information that you want to memorize over and over again over several days to increase your ability to retain the facts and figures.

Bribe yourself with small treats at regular intervals to remain motivated.

Step 3: Write the information in your own words
Restate the information in your own words. Write the words and repeat them out loud to reinforce the information.

Step 4: Create a visual image to help you remember
Create a visual image to help you remember. Draw pictures, diagrams, or charts to help you build a picture to aid your memory.

Step 5: Create a mnemonic device
Create a mnemonic device to help you remember the facts and figures. This could be an acronym or a phrase that helps you recall the information.

Step 6: Take a break
Take a break for at least an hour before returning to learning. Give your brain some time off and you'll find that you're able to remember more and more facts and figures.

Did You Know?
Work by British scientists supports the saying that elephants never forget. Their research showed that older female elephants were able to remember faces of other elephants.
