I thought I’d stop in and say hello.
I’m Davide from Italy and I’m 30 years old. I am a freelance marketing consultant.
After high school I decided to study foreign languages at university. I realized very soon that it wasn’t my piece of cake. After a few years doing different jobs, I got interested in marketing and I did a few courses. Three years ago, I decided I’d turn this passion into a business and I started my freelance marketing consulting business.
It was during these last three years I developed a passion for Economics. And so, I figured I’d get my degree in Economics! That’s when I got interested in memory techniques. And they helped me tremendously with passing exams with good grades.
I dint’t think this could ever be possible; I wasn’t bad ad school, but I never really put much effort ins studying in generals, much less studying incredible long and boring subjects such as Statistics or History of Economics. On top of that, I was working as a consultant which was leaving me with just a few hours after dinner for studying.
Memory techniques allowed me to memorize a great deal of information, very fast and in the most effective way possible. This gave me more confidence in myself as a student; so much that I’d recently decided I’d go ahead and get a PhD as well - all while still working a day job.
At the moment, my biggest challenge with memorizing for exams is the sheer amount of mental images I need to create. I’m looking for a more structured, efficient approach that I can rely on for my future exams. I’d surely create a new thread asking for advice with a few details of my specific situation.
And so - I’ve found this forum while I was looking for resources to strengthen my memory skills and I was pleasantly surprised to find this great community, so passionate and willing to help students to succeed. The best thing is the overall no BS approach. I immediately felt this is the real deal. I wish I’ve found this forum before I’d spend good money on a couple of memory courses!
Happy to be here, guys - looking forward to know each one of you better.
