    Trouble remembering things

    Well, I've found out this problem some time ago, it's like when I learn something new then after that no matter how hard I try to remember it I just can't! It's extreamly frustrating because I'm getting nearer and nearer to the EXAM OF MY LIFE. So, how do you remember stuff(those in text books)?

    notecards/flashcards, extensive studying, maybe you have a disorder? and no worries everyone has their memory lags every now and then, i remember something, but forget when im taking the test, but then remember after the test.

    Repetition is the key. The more you read something over and over, the more you will remember. Also try writing it out. For some people that helps. What works best with me is to associate it with something that you will remember. For example, if a word sounds like another word that you use often try to tie the two together so when one comes up you will remember the other.

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    First of all, GET LOTS OF SLEEP. It's during REM sleep that short term memory is processed into long term memory. And since it takes 2-3 hours of sleeping before you enter REM sleep...

    Second, avoid recreational drugs, as Marijuana and alcohol are known to interfere with long term memory.

    Third, studies have shown that the brain is better at processing relationships then it is at memorizing facts, so when you study, try to think of the information in relation to something that you already know, as understanding the relationships of things is always the key to learning...

    Haha, but too much sleep is not good for your mental health either; that results in lethargy. I am certain that Len-sami meant 6-8 hours of sleep as "lots". Aside from he said, I have a few things to recommend that might enhance one's ability to remember and retain learning materials offered in school. I will keep it short!

    - Acquire the habit to devote a considerate amount of time to actively review all the matters that have been covered in classes on a daily basis.. ~!!! In addition, it is a good practice to generate questions from what you learned, and try to answer them in your own words!

    - Do meditation for at least a half hour! Believe me, it surely helps!

    - Try not to put up studying for days, and return back to it after enjoying a couple of days with no mental exercise. Daily stimulate and indulge your mind with school-related subject matters.

    - Lastly.. I find it very helpful to actually study with people, to whom you can explain what you learned. ~!! To be able to do that, I think, means that you most likely grasped the material ~!!!!! I participate in study groups, and teach tutorials. They are very help, indeed.

    ~!!! Well, that's it from me. Oh yeah, for me, having a really 'hot' teacher helps me remember things even better. Hence, I always scored the highest in my Physics class.

    Unfortunately, not everyone is created equal. I have a friend who is like you and he is struggling so bad in college right now. One of the smartest guy I know in engineering, so smart he would even tutor all his friends about the material before the test day and they would all pass but him. Not like he doesn't know his stuff, just that it all goes poof when the test comes...seems like there's nothing you can do...

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart
