I’m new to the forum but quite experienced with memory techniques.
I am about to enter med school and I thought about using memory techniques to retain the information I learn for a long time. I wonder: which is the best way to memorize all the different information I am going to learn?
Should I use one memory palace for each subject? One memory palace for each textbook? A journey for each topic within a subject? (by the way, why people use journey as opposed to memory palace)? Flashcards with questions and spaced repetition?
My goal, of course, is for long term memory (not just memorizing for the test and then “deleting” it).
The most logical to me seems to use the memory palace, but I wonder how practical is it to have 30 palaces (or G-d knows how many), one for each subject, and then go through each one of them every time I need an info. Besides that, medical information doesn’t need a “sequence” to be learned, as opposed to lists of any type, and I think sequence is essential to palace memories, right?
I would love to have more ideas about it.
