Lately I’ve started going to quizzes in Gothenburg, where I live at the moment. It’s a lot of fun and of course memory techniques are a great tool for improving at these.
What would you suggest are great things to memorize for quizzing? I have already gone through the “obvious” ones such as the countries of the world and general world (and Swedish) history. I also recently finished memorizing a sort of encyklopedia called “What every Swede should know” (600 pages of alphabetically sorted information in chapters on anything from art and literature to medicine and natural sciences) which felt extremely useful. This kind of condensed and structured information seems like a goldmine. Do you know of other such books or resources that could be interesting to look into?
One of my biggest weaknesses is popular music (like hits between 1960 and 2020). This seems like such a vast territory, especially for someone like me who only listened to the same five or so albums during my entire childhood and adolescence. Any suggestions on improving on that in a structured way?
Thanks in advance!
