Summary

Lists several general methods for how to memorize information.

Mnemonic memory aids

Add words or phrases to help you remember things. For example, you could add "(Houston, we have a problem)" next to "Houston" in the above table, if that helps you to remember "Rockets".

 

Memorize.com is designed so that you can create your own version of any table on the site. You can add hints to tables while you're memorizing by double-clicking.

Flashcards

Consists of repeatedly looking at items and attempting to recall the corresponding items until you remember them reliably. Here are some "items" that can be memorized via flashcards:

 

CityNBA Team
ChicagoBulls
New YorkKnicks
BostonCeltics
HoustonRockets
TorontoRaptors

Click a "start memorizing" button to begin a flashcard process. It starts by showing you a random item. Attempt to recall the corresponding one and then click the button. Click the button right away if you can't recall or simply don't know it yet. Continue until the table fills up.

Matching

Click a "start memorizing" button and then "matching" at the bottom. Then click items to match them together.

Multiple Choice

Click a "start memorizing" button and then "multiple choice" at the bottom. Then press the button next to the correct answer.
