Mind Mapping Mind Mapping Drawings have been used for centuries to analyze problems and map out information Unless you retain and review what you have learned, you are likely to lose 80% of it within 24 hours. Students at a leading university who received an ‘A’ on the final exam were given the same exam a month later. None of them passed it, proving that the final exam was final indeed. What is mind mapping? The need for learning doesn’t stop at graduation. Unless you train your memory it is likely to get worse over time, not better. Retention is the art of storing new information or skills. Recall is the art of retrieving it when you need it. A Recall Strategy Mind Mapping trains your mind for more efficient retention and recall. Mind maps are tools which help you think and learn. University students have found mind maps useful. Understanding is not recall Understanding something is not sufficient to remember it. Thinking that you understand what you have seen, heard, or read is different than can actually short-circuit your memory Mental associations are also necessary for recall. Mind Mapping reinforces understanding and gives a visual framework for organizing ideas and making associations. Compact notes improve recall Learning without note taking forces you to go back and review from scratch. Taking extensive notes provides too much information and too few memory cues. Mind Maps store everything you need on one page, and encode the information in memory-rich nuggets for easy recall. Use key words, symbols, and pictures packed with meaning and associations that work for you. Weave them together by color, positioning, outlines, or arrows But the most important weaving for memory is creating mental associations Schedule your reviews We remember best that which comes first and that which comes last (serial position). We remember less of what comes in between. Improve recall by scheduling breaks and review sessions. Take a five to ten minute break in every hour of study to increase the frequency of first and last impressions. Review, Review To retain your material in long-term memory, schedule review sessions. Review frequently, and the material will be yours. Having your review map on one-page makes reviewing easy and enjoyable. Memory is the art of attention Tony Buzan and Raymond Keene developing your senses As quoted from The Book of Genius: Learn to look as a child or artist looks; to listen like a musician; to talk like a poet; to move like an animal or a dancer; to detect odors like a deer; and to eat and drink as if you were a master chef. -Become a mini-anthropologist! Do as the Natives do! Practice perfect recall Memory suffers when we mentally separate rehearsal from performance. The closer you can simulate your performance in your practice, the more effectively you will do both. Only perfect practice makes perfect.
