Draw the Periodic Table of the Elements from Memory is written as a study aid for learning about the periodic table of the elements. The book begins with an introduction to the structure of the atom and electron orbitals. The periodic nature of the table is then discussed and groups of atoms with similar characteristics are identified. The book then focuses on drawing the periodic table with its 118 element names and symbols from memory. Several memory techniques are used that use full color pictures with easily remembered phrases that help recall the information in the correct position in the table. Groups of elements with similar characteristics are memorized together in order to reinforce the periodic nature of the table. The blank table on the back cover of the book can be filled in with a wet-erase marker to keep track of progress. I hope this book will help simplify the once difficult task of remembering this elegant collection of scientific knowledge that is so basic to a science education.
