2. Sort Information into Categories that Already Exist in Your Long-Term Memory

2.1. Use the loci method

2.1.2. Combine new information with something already familiar Put items you want to remember at specific locations along a route that is already vivid and familiar in your mind e.g. your way to work, your own body, or a walk through your house

3. Use Sounds to Remember Numbers and Dates

3.1. Transform numbers into images that will stick in your mind

3.2. First, change numbers into letters / change how those letters sound

3.3. Example

3.3.1. Number zero Can be represented by the letters s, z and c Think about a hissing wheel 0 looks like a wheel anyway!

3.4. Each number from 0-9 can be assigned a group of similar sounding consonants

3.4.1. You can also use the shape of the numbers to assign sounds e.g. flipping a 3 makes it look like an m

3.5. Now, if you're trying to remember a date, write down the letters that represent them and try to make up a word

3.5.1. e.g. 1969 No need to remember the first 1 because most important dates we want to remember happened in the last millennia
