Do you recall studying for your exams? You probably do. But do you remember how you studied, how you memorized French words or the year of the American civil war? Now, that’s probably harder. As a teenager, Ricardo Lieuw On was packing groceries when he knew what he wanted to study: he wanted to learn about learning. He picked up a study in psychology and learned how to reduce his learning time from 3 hours to 1 hour on the same piece of content. He gained the same knowledge in 200% less time. And specially for TEDxHaarlem, he shares the secret of his technique.

    All these memory champions can remember the 19 subjects of medical school and can they crack an entrance exam constructed at the end of med school totally based on their rote memory???

    Can they???If they cant,then they are no memory champions..

    Any topper of medical entrance exam would give better tips on retaining information which are totally based on rote memory..

    I am nit desrespecting other courses but medical education is totally based on rote memory..

  24. Dimitry Bessonov says:

    So the trick is to visualize stuff in order and use word play to remember names and stuff? The thing is that you have to prepare for this, right? How much time will it take you to create that? In real life situations it makes no sense, cause your brain have to act fast. Mostly when you listening and/or watching. I can't say to my teacher or anyone else "Oh hold on a sec I forgot is that thing related to a bacon or a bird". There is no tripling your memory, just some metaphors and allegories.
