Memory Techniques

Numbers

shapes

This is where images that look like numbers (like a doughnut) are asssociated strongly with the thing to remember, and so a list can be remembered in an order, and the items recalled in any order ( like "what is item no. 3?" )

rhymes

This is like number shapes, exept the thing to be associated with the objects sound like the number, instead of looking like it (like shoe for 2) .

Palace

This is where you imagine objects interacting with thins in your memory palace. This can be somewhere you know well, like your house. If the visualization is clear, you should be able to remember lots of unstructured objects. This is also called the "roman room" method.

Memory movie

A memory movie involves showing your objects in a way you can remember (like for the order of the planets, a guy holding a mars bar would jump off the Earth, and away from the sun) .  The movie should be clear in your mid, so that it can be recalled easily, so try repeating it a few times.
