Book memorizing


Hi. I am looking for the best memory technique to memorize books of programming and maths.I read the pdf for beginners and I found It easy and fun.What is your opinion?Also I am interest at fast reading(learning).I heard about anki.
Thank for your answers.

What are those specifically? Memorizing Donald Knuth’s The Art Of Computer Programming will be very different from an Introduction to C++ book. Are you talking about language syntaxes and libraries or algorithms in general? Ditto for math.


Let Us C for example.Everything I have to learn.Syntaxes,Libraries,mindset of programming, everything that I read.But I told math and programming(languages,algorithms) because this is my interest at the moment.


Why did you decide on that book? I just read the first few chapters and it’s really bad. Is this required reading in school? There isn’t really much to memorize in there… it’s just a bunch of short code snippets. Just type them, compile, and run.

Have a look here: for a better way of language instruction and then have a look around the web for c/c++ tutorials that follow a similar structure.

The book doesn’t really mention anything about algorithms; it’s just a very basic introductory text. Have you only just started? The standard text for Algorithms is this one:

…but I wouldn’t recommend that to anyone who is still learning only the basics. You can check MIT Open Courseware here for video lectures:

Not sure what you mean by “mindset of programming” or to what extent you would be able to memorize a mindset.


There’s no point in memorising a math book. I have a weak memory and I’m really good at math. Although I am lucky to have a bit of natural grab at maths, I can only say that practice is the only thing that can help you.
