Hello, so I have been using visualization techniques for a while now, and they are indeed effective. However, they’re also extremely time consuming, and I am a situation (university) where time is a scarce. I am studying biology concepts, and I want to use visualization techniques to help me employ the SQ3R method. (Saves time because no cue cards need to be created) By rote memorization I can quickly learn a fact around two minutes. Can I reach that speed through the use of mnemonics? If so, how much time would I have to wait? I honestly don’t know, some people tell me it requires too much time, while others say that visualization is valuable. If I return to using cue cards, I’m definitely still going to use the memory palace with it, because I’ve been getting such great results from it.
I need to get to a point where an understanding of the material as fast as possible. I’ll appreciate any feedback given. Thank you.
