Most of the time I try to understand my notes first and then put them into Anki. But I’m having a hard time recalling them, as I don’t know how to form pictures with dry information.
Take this as an example:
There are three major systems that have to be memorized. Each system has a goal, a description, and consists of pros/cons. How do I effectively learn them?
Normally, I just repeat them over and over until it somehow sticks. I also try to associate persons and actions to that information, but it doesn’t always work. Especially, when the information is just words linked together.
When I read something like “…planned, strategic and systematically tests”, I use an image for all three adjectives.
- planned = calendar
- strategic = emporer
- systematically = computer
But it doesn’t really help. I also don’t know how to integrate this kind of information in a memory palace. Do I set three locis for that one information?
Please let me know what your technique looks like.
