Any task you do, even the one that at first glance seems difficult to accomplish, may turn out to be quite easy if slice and dice it carefully. This article shows how to use visual memory when preparing for classes so that the study material is perceived easier and faster.
During the day, set aside one minute of your time and search for information in the study materials that you find interesting. Search until you find something that attracts your attention.
At bedtime, you are in a state of relaxation, in which you quickly perceive information. The stronger the nap, the better. Prepare all the necessary materials before bedtime, then just turn off the lights and fall asleep:
The next morning, when waking up, you are still in a state of light naps for a while. Again apply the same principle: the sleepier you are, the better you perceive the information. Questions to yourself: for 5 minutes, look through the book and, in parallel, ask yourself the question: “What should I study?” and simultaneously answer yourself out loud.
If possible, repeat the procedure every evening and every morning. You will see that your usual preparation for classes will go faster and you will begin to memorize more information.
A few more tips on how to use visual memory in preparation for classes:
When you make a detailed summary of the book, reduce it to one page. If this seems impossible to you, first, for example, shorten the notes from 70 pages to 5 pages, and then from 5 to 1. Choose data (words, numbers, images) that in your memory are associated with theories, stories, graphs…and follow the rule: the less – the better. This is one of the fastest ways to transfer large amounts of information into long-term memory.
