I would like to thank you for purchasing this short course.��
I have been using memory techniques personally now for the last 15 years. I have taken the greatest��
pleasure in being able to train those with dyslexia - who are often left out of the educational system - and show��
then that they are not drop outs. Their minds simply work differently and because of that they do in fact have��
very powerful memories. I have watched such people fly once I have taught them even the most basic of the��
I still enjoy it though when I teach someone who claims to have a poor memory a basic system, because it��
is the look on their face when they realise that with no effort their brain has done something they never thought��
that it could do.��
For me, the adventure started when I knew I was going to college to train as a youthworker - I wanted to��
know how to remember stuff as I had never been very good at it. I learned the basic system in around half an��
hour and then moved on in a day to the letter shape system.��
I am a slow study, and it took a couple of days for me to get my head around it. But once I had I decided to��
challenge myself to learn the books of the Bible in order. It seemed impossible but I took on the task, wonder-��
ing if it would really work.��
45 mins later I was recalling the books backwards, forwards, and inside out! I couldn’t believe it.��
Whilst at college I was the only person not to have post-it notes spread around the house and memorised��
some 30 important history dates and related information in just 2 hours ... Whilst sat in front of the TV!��
I have tried to keep this book as short as possible and keep the anecdotes out as much as possible. My��
experience of studying other similar materials is that there are always a number of stories and perhaps too��
many examples. Maybe I have not used enough stories or examples, but I think that the best way of using the��
memory techniques I have included is to actually use them, not try and tell you what I think!��
I hope that as you read through this, the first edition of what I hope will be an annually updated course, you��
will take the same pleasure as I have in learning to learn. I also hope that the added brain facts, and study��
techniques will be useful to you. And if you find anything that you feel is in error, or could do with further expla-��
nation then please email me - if you bought off ebay you know already where I am!��
So enjoy!��

Using your memory��
Although I have made every effort not to use material from other memory systems without giving credit, it is quite��
difficult to not do so accidentally, mainly because all systems in the end use a finite number of resources, and most��
systems rely on ancient principles - such that duplication is inevitable. The purpose of this short book is to��
combine what I find to be the most useful of all those that I have used over the years, together with what variations��
I have seen fit to implement to achieve better results. I have been using all these systems for many years, a couple��
of which are my own invention, and so the material it was originally based on has, for me at any rate, been lost a��
long time ago. If you are aware of similar source material I would be most grateful for the references so that in��
future updates to the text I can reference valuable sources. Mindmap and mindmapping is copyright and registered��
trade mark of Tony Buzan. I have used reference to the phrase mindmap and mindmapping as it is used now��
widely in education. For more detailed information on mindmapping please consult Tony Buzan publications.��
