Other Ways to Improve Memory
This is similar to structure and organize. This method involves connecting old memories with new information. The memories that are already in long term memory trap in new information.
Drill and Practice:
Sometimes you just got to rinse and repeat. Repeating the information "drills" it into your brain making it stick. You may have to go over the information several times in order for it to go to long term memory.
