Step1

Write or type any facts that you think might appear on the test. Make sure that you keep it short and that you write in complete sentences.

Step2

Once you’ve finished written your notes, go into a quiet room, shut the door, and eliminate all outside noises.

Step3

Then, read the first sentence of your notes out loud. Close your eyes and say the sentence again without looking. Then, repeat this step with the first two sentences.

Step4

Next, try it with three. Then four. Keep doing this until you have memorized all of your notes.

Step5

Another useful method is to rewrite your notes. This helps process the information while you are writing, enabling you to memorize it more effectively.

Step6

When we encode information, we are not only learning the information we are reading, but also our surroundings. This leads to contextual effects. We recall information best in the environment that we learned said information in. This effect also extends to mind-state. For example, if I drink water while studying, I’ll probably remember a lot better when I’m drinking water while taking a test.
