    So I have been doing some research on the internet and now I want to improve my memory. Reason: I read that a better memory is a key to learning. It makes sense since you have to memorize so much stuff for school anyways. So I just wanted to hear other people's opinion about the subject. I have found a couple of memory improvement courses online like the School of Phenomenal Memory or Dr. Brunos Course and I just wanted to see if anyone has had any experience with any memory improvement course out there.

    edit - not a key just an asset
    Remember that memorizing is useful in short term things and if your never going to do that subject agian. Its better to understand it and actually know it and not spit out facts. Try doing the sudoko puzzles heard they were good for you mind but for memory you do little things like not forgeting anything at the grocery. Hope this help(have feeling this isn't what you wanted)

    Hey Trix thanks for the reply. It is true that memorizing would be helpful for short term, thus the reason I am looking on how to improve my long term memory. I also feel that if I could understand the material through memorization it would be even better. What is interesting that I found was this free manual that they had on the School of Phenomenal Memory site. This thing is like huge with tons of info in it. Seems helpful from the first glance but I will post anything interesting I find in this manual Later. Thanks again

    personally I don't think memorization helps because you end up not understanding it but just throwing out whatever you memorized and eventually you'll forget. But maybe it helps you learn better if it does then great I think I'll aslso check the site out I keep forgetting groceries and sometimes I eve forget shows on tv that i just watched a few minutes ago

    Well, memorizing something does help us to better understand things in the long term, I suppose. Alright, it might enable us to spit out facts without justification or actual understanding, but that doesn't necessarily mean that we can't ever understand it, because it's determination and thriving that makes us develop our understand something, more than our sharpness of memory. I might have misinterpreted what you said, but that's how I took it...
