It is best to integrate several different types of media to help make a memory print in your brain. Think of your memory process like a field no one has every crossed before. Your job is to wear a path in it that will hold up under any condition and for the rest of your life. That will happen quicker and easier if you not only walked the path but drove a vehicle, drug a plow, drove a heard of cattle and directed a marcbing band across it to help carve the way. Further, in order to make the path permanent do a little of one of these things daily. Also, timing plays a huge role in "the curve of forgetting". We begin to lose what we have learned in less than 24 he's if it is not reinforced in some way. take notes in class. That same evening transcribe them to a special notebook .Read the chapter before the class lecture. Jot down unfamiiar words or concepts to discuss in class. Don't rely on "cramming" the night before a test and you will be a very successful student.
it has been said that you say a word seven times you will remember it but personally when I write it down or make it into a goofy song I cant get out of my head ill remember it. try to mess around with ways and you will find the best solution that works for you!
Takes so long to write it all down. I used to do that, but found that saying it outloud is very good, as well as underlining the parts you need to know that are hard to remember. Then you can review all the parts underlined. Is it your own book or school property? So, I do that with my Bible.
No one can really tell but you. I suggest you try both methods. Get someone to help you. Pick out a paragraph and read it. Then pick out a different paragraph and write it out and see which works best. Then recite each paragraph from memory to your helper.
